The class of 2020 is one of those classes that is loaded from top to bottom with talent coming from all across the country.  A few players do stick out at the top, and one of them is 6-4 G/F Jaden Springer of Rocky River (North Carolina).  Springer had an outstanding sophomore season leading his team with averages of 24.7 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.5 steals, and 2.5 blocks.  Springer led his team to a 23-7 record and a North Carolina 4A State Final Four appearance.

Springer comes from a basketball family that has reached success at the highest levels.  His dad was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers after being a Mcdonald's All-American, and a three time All-American at Iona.  Both of his big brothers were division one players as well.  Nationally Springer is a top 20 talent right now (#16 in the latest NY2LA rankings) and plans to keep the family name in great hands.

At the next level Springer will most likely fit in as a combo guard.  When you combine his strength, size, and athleticism with his quick shifty ball handling, incredibly high basketball IQ, finishing abilities, and his improving jump shot he is everything you look for in a combo guard.  He has no problem scoring from all three levels.  He can score and create for himself off the dribble and can finish through contact as good as anyone in the 2020 class.  He crashes the boards as hard as any guard in the country no matter the class as he has led his high school team in rebounds in both his freshman and sophomore seasons.  Once he finds and becomes more comfortable with his jump shot and continues to stay in the gym and work on his craft he has potential to end up being one of the best guards to come out of that class when it is all said and done.

The talented 2020 prospect has gained the attention of many top programs across the country.  He currently holds offers from Auburn, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Maryland, Murray State, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA, Virgina Tech, and Wake Forest.  Schools like Kentucky and Louisville among others are also expressing strong interest.  Having taken recent visits to Kentucky and Tennessee Springer plans to take more in the near future.

In a class that continues to see high caliber prospects jump out nationally, expect to hear a lot about Jaden Springer as he’s already one of the most coveted sophomores in the country and he’s just getting started.  Jaden Springer plays with B-Maze Elite of the UAA during the traveling grassroots season.
