Back in 2016, we wrote about an article, Name to Know: 6’1 2017 James West IV. James was a talented player that committed to Mount St. Mary’s. James played two years at Mount St. Mary’s and will finish his college basketball career at Tusculum University in Tennessee.
Fast forward to 2020, and Jalen hopes to be following in his big brother’s footsteps. Jalen is a slender and skilled 6’3 combo guard and is expected for a breakout season for Freedom High School in Woodbridge, Virginia. Jalen has good shooting mechanics, touch and range. In addition, he has the ability to score off the dribble utilizing an array of offensive moves, either the reverse spin or his crafty reverse layups with his “off hand.” While Jalen has the ability to score off the catch or create his own shot off the dribble, he has natural passing instincts with his overall court vision.
