Like a Young D Rose? Jaden Springer about to Take Off!
Jaden Springer is a 6’4 four-star shooting guard in the Class of 2020 (top 40 nationally according to 247 Sports).
The Charlotte, N.C. native, who attends Rocky River High School, Jaden Springer is the top sophomore in North Carolina and is an electrifying talent!
We caught Springer on the UAA circuit playing with B-Maze 15U. Springer was one of the most productive players overall (across all 15U teams).
He showed an ability to take over games at times. He also showed unique offensive skills and athleticism which reminded us of watching young Derrick Rose back at Simeon Career Academy.
Basketball runs in the Springer family. We learned his brother Gary Jr. played at Iona as a 6’9 power forward from 2004-09. Another brother, 6’7 forward Jordan Springer, played at Butler High before playing at Army from 2009-13. Jaden’s dad Gary Sr. was played on a legendary NYC high school team at Benjamin Franklin HS that included future St. John’s star Walter Berry. Gary Sr. also played in the 1980 McDonald’s All-America game with Doc Rivers, now the Los Angeles Clippers’ coach. Gary Sr. was a three-time honorable mention All-American at Iona and was drafted by the 76ers but never played professionally, as injuries ended his career.
Now it’s up to young Jaden Springer to write his own basketball story…
Springer’s college offers include Auburn, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Murray State, North Carolina State, UCLA, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Tennessee.
Check out these highlights from Jaden Springer at the 2017 UAA and at Fab 48 in Vegas!
