Fisher Remains Open

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- The NBPA Top 100 Camp is arguably the top event of the summer because top prospects from all three AAU circuits are invited to participate. The competition is top-notch, and it's a way the best players can measure themselves against others.

"It's a challenge," said Arlington (TN) Bolton point guard Jaylen Fisher. "It makes it real competitive with all the kids from each circuit. You hear about which is the toughest, and now everybody is at one spot. You can't run from anybody.

"I like the way it's set up. Just being in the gym everyday... that's the place I want to be."

Fisher can best be described as a gym rat. In between games, he's working on his jumper or talking with coaches for advice. His head coach at the NBPA Top 100 Camp was long-time NBA forward Reggie Evans.

"He teaches us to never give up," Fisher said of Evans. "He said not to take anything for granted and always go hard. He said you never know when it will be your last time on the court so make every time your best time."

A four-star point guard, Fisher is coveted by several programs. He holds offers from NC State, LSU, Memphis, Baylor, Tennessee, and Arkansas among others.

Growing up on the outskirts of Memphis, he's very familiar with the Tigers.

"Memphis is in there," Fisher said. "The talent there [stands out]. They have the Lawson twins and one of my teammates, Nick Marshall. They got some good players in the past years. It would be good to run the show with them."

NC State is one of the latest schools to offer Fisher a scholarship. He doesn't know a lot about the Wolfpack, but has been in constant communication with the coaching staff.

"I haven't really watched NC State play much, but they said they have big things to offer," said Fisher. "They could help get me to the next level. I could have the chance to run the show so I'm looking at them."

For Fisher, the plan is to narrow down his list after July and start to focus on making a decision. Does he have a leader?

"Nah, all of my options are open," he said. "I look at every school as equal.

"[I'm looking at] whoever shows the most love, and who is going to let me play. I want the chance to play early."

Fisher is rated the No. 80 player in the 2016 class by
