High School Coach Evaluation: Jakari Wilkins is an outstanding freshman point guard. 'I’m so pleased with his growth and development. 'He has deep range with his 3 point shot and has improved his handle to the point where he can easily go past defenders with a quick and tight handle. 'He will be a top performer in this area. 'And for a freshman, has the willingness and heart to want the ball in his hands in clutch moments. 'Super excited to coach him every game and even more excited to see him in the coming years. '' Coach Kashif Johnson, Asst Varsity Coach Menchville High School

 

Coach Frank says: Jakari is a speedy and quick, high motor guard who plays hard every possession.' He can get to the basket with regularity and is capable of playing either guard position.' He is quick on change of direction dribble moves, keeps his eyes up the floor and attacks the basket with purpose.' Jakari can hit the jumper with three point range but does a great job attacking his defender using his quickness and a tight handle to beat many defenders.' He is a very good passer and is a savvy ball handler.' He is a defensive pest!' Has quick, active feet and hands.' He is a scrappy and tough on ball defender and a high IQ defender.' He gets to his defensive rotations quickly, has excellent anticipation and gets a lot of steals as a result of his solid defensive effort.' Jakari is a starter as a freshman and a contributor on both ends and is a player who all indications suggest will have a productive high school basketball career and a likely opportunity to play at the next level.' Keep an eye on him!
