LAS VEGAS – The class of 2020 is shaping up to be one of the best within the past five or six years and the emergence of Jaden Springer only strengthens it. A 6-foot-4 guard that can play all across the perimeter, Springer finished a superb July with a tremendous run through the Fab 48, culminating with a runner-up performance at the loaded event.

Tracking as a five-star prospect during the inaugural rankings release at the end of the month, Springer is one of the more entertaining players as evidenced by the 360-dunk that he pulled off during one of his games.

“It is something that I do all of the time so I figured I had to get it in during a game,” he said.

UCLA decided to offer, joining a growing list of potential suitors that includes Old Dominion, Wake Forest, Auburn, Georgia Tech, New Mexico State and Stephen F. Austin.

IN HIS WORDS

Wake Forest: “It is great. It is right at home. I can go there and still be around my family. It would be a great look for me.”

Georgia Tech: “It is great having an offer from them with them being in the ACC. I just have to keep progressing and working on my game. I will worry about all the other stuff later on.”

WHAT’S NEXT?

After finishing his sophomore summer with the B-Maze Elite 16-under group, Springer will compete at the adidas Nations event this weekend in Houston, Texas. No visits are planned yet, though one is expected to be taken to NC State before the summer ends.

RIVALS’ REACTION

Springer has the chance to be one of the more highly acclaimed prospects in the country. A super talented, athletic and skilled guard that can play on and off the basketball, Springer is just now beginning to see the fruits of his labor. It will not be long before a few of the blueblood programs become involved.
