Top programs intrigued by young phenom Jahseem Felton

Jahseem Felton
Jahseem Felton (

Jahseem Felton has carried a big reputation with him since middle school as he has been ranked, by many, among the top players in his class since the sixth grade.

“I bring energy, I play defense. I can score the ball and handle under pressure, too," Felton said. "I bring a lot of energy to the floor, but with my scoring and my handle I hear a lot of people say I play like Ja Morant.”

His game has already drawn the interest of some big-name college programs around the country.

“Right now I have offers from Georgetown, Kansas, Ole Miss, Wake (Forest), South Alabama and the Florida Gators.”

Georgetown: “They’re a big-time school. Coach Patrick Ewing is a great coach, and Allen Iverson is one of the greatest point guards ever. It seems like a great place. I’ve heard a lot about it since I was a young person.”

Kansas: “You know Kansas is a big-time school, everybody loves them. You know, I am young so they tell me to keep working and to be good at school and to fall in love with the process.”

Florida: “An SEC school, great offer. A lot of great players come from there. A lot of people from my AAU team (BMaze Elite) went there, so I know some people there.”

Ole Miss: “I’m just now learning a lot about them. Another SEC school, so great league. I love how they play freely, they give their guards a lot of freedom.”

Wake Forest: “They’re close to home. CP3 (Chris Paul), a point guard who came from there. A great program, in the ACC and everyone wants an ACC offer.

South Alabama: “People don’t really know about South Alabama, they got a lot of accolades. A lot of people who have gone there, who have played for those coaches, have gone on to play overseas and stuff.



"I realize that all this stuff can go away quickly, so I just try and keep my head straight and keep working,” Felton said.
