In 2018, Kobe will be retired, LeBron will be in his 4th season with the Cavs since leaving Miami and the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy will be a year old! 2018 is also the year that 14 year old Jalen Preston graduates from high school!
So who is Jalen Preston? He’s just your average 14 year old from Pearland who has ex college stars as parents (Derrick and Shayla both played at Sam Houston State), a mentor in ex NBA player and University of Texas legend TJ Ford and some serious hops. How serious are the hops of the 6’2 185 pound 8th grader? The last time he checked – in 7th grade – he had a 34 inch vert. From the looks of these clips from this past weekend at the CP3 Rising Star Camp and summer highlights while playing for TJ Ford’s Elite AAU team, I think he might have gained a few inches.
See for yourself and don’t complain about the quality of the clips because i’m sure you will be seeing and hearing a lot more about him in the near and very distant future.
