Player: Jalan Wingfield

High School: Thomas County Central (Georgia)

We are continuing to bring you new names as they start entering the high school level and one player who honestly caught my eye was 2026 6'6 Jalan Wingfield down in Georgia at Thomas County Central. All you need really is to watch his highlight film to see that he has a chance to be something special. His blend of size, his body frame, his skill set, his ability to operate and make plays happen from several areas on the court, his ability to finish… all can be seen and with him only being 14 years old and a rising freshman, has to get you excited about his future.

It didn't take us long to notice, as spoke with Thomas Co. Central's coach Juwan Hopkins to learn more about his game and their focus early on with the young man. Wingfield also earned his first offer recently from Albany State, but we got a strong feeling that you will be hearing his name a lot more very quickly as he continues to develop. Check out what the coach had to say and highlights below, and start jotting his name down today.

What Coach Said (Juwan Hopkins, high school coach):

'Jalan is very comfortable on the court. He is always under control and he’s a great student of the game. He understands angles and rotational assignments and can make the right play. He is a very unselfish player. His strengths are his ability to shoot the ball and ball handling. He’s a very coachable player who lives in the gym and absorbs everything. He wants and expects to be great. Wingfield continues to work on his defensive abilities, especially footwork and lateral movement. The goal is to make him a switchable defender. We are also working on his athleticism and shooting off the catch and dribble.'
