Back in September, Phenom Hoops introduced you to a freshman that you will want to learn about in 2026 6'6 Jalan Wingfield from Thomas County Central (GA). When we talked about him then, here is what we had to say:

'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.'

We also spoke to his high school coach, Coach Juwan Hopkins, to get his perspective on the young prospect and his game:

'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.'

Fast forward to today, it seems that college programs aren't wasting any time looking his way, as Wingfield has added offers of Cincinnati and Seattle early on (already held an offer from Albany State). We spoke to the freshman prospect down in Georgia about his early thoughts about earning early attention.

'I am honored to start receiving the interest and offers,' Wingfield said. 'It feels great and a dream of mine, but I know I have a long road ahead of me and a lot of work to put in.'

Wingfield is certainly a prospect, that if you haven't had a chance to watch and check out, college programs are already taking notice of.
