POSITION: Shooting Guard/Point Guard

UPDATE: Jerrell suffered an injury toward the end of his senior year, prohibiting him from participating in the playoffs. However, he will take a year at the Apex Academy in New Jersey to polish up his individual game. He is certainly worth watching over the next several months. He is healthy again and this should give him an opportunity to bag some scholarship offers.

STRENGTHS: Has long arms and possesses good basketball IQ. Has the ability to rotate the ball effectively along the perimeter.

AREA TO IMPROVE IN INDIVIDUAL GAME: His frame, like most high school players, needs to add more strength and muscle. This would help him create more mismatches with his long arms.

EVALUATION: Jerrell has the ability to move without the ball. He makes smart decisions in transition and plays under control.
