Derric Jean Talks FGCU Visit

We talked with 2015 prospect Derric Jean about his visit to Florida Gulf Coast University and more.

Florida Gulf Coast hosted 2015 guard Derric Jean, of Florida Flash and McArthur High School, on an official visit this past weekend.

"Everything, the campus and scenery, was just beautiful," Jean said of his trip to Dunk City.

The Eagles offered the explosive Hollywood, Fla. guard on July 11, after a phenomenal showing at Best of the South in Suwanee, Ga.

"The coaching staff likes my game penetrating the lane and handling the ball," Jean said. "...I'm at my best in transition and on the defensive end."

The stat stuffing prospect averaged 13.2 points, 3.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.8 steals en route to McArthur's 21-7 record last season. ESPN ranks the 6-foot-1 guard as a three star recruit and the 20th best player in Florida's 2015 class.

This was Jean's 2nd official visit of the fall as he already visited FIU and will be headed to Louisiana Tech next weekend, Sept. 20-21. He then plans to make a decision in November, before the high school season resumes.

In the meantime however, Jean wants to improve his "decision making and shooting." He also voiced his focus on communicating better with his teammates on the floor.
