In 6’3″ JAYLEN FORNES from Raleigh, NC ( Word of God Christian Academy ) is simply a VERY Intriguing combo guard prospect ! Taking inventory of his current recruiting process, I have NO idea why there is an absence of a volume of BCS programs coming after him…but thinking back to many of recent combo guards of similar size that have excelled at the High major college level the last few years OR “CG’s” that have signed at the High major level the last couple years, this kid is just as good if not better at the same stage.
He also gives a strong impression of being a quality, sincere young man with a mature and humble perspective. He has a very solid 3.2 GPA .
Jaylen split time with Team Loaded (NC) & SEBL AAU programs this Spring / Summer.
Not too long ago, there was another Guard from the state of NC with a very similar physical resemblance and similar smooth, sweet shooting game… that went overlooked by High Major programs. He went on to Star at Davidson and now is currently an NBA superstar and reigning Champion PG. Jaylen Fornes “may not” be the next Steph Curry, but BCS conference coaches want to get in at last minute or end up with similar regrets as to not getting involved with this impressive young backcourt talent. (very Skilled, poised scorer with sneaky athleticism )
Fornes is coming off an injury plagued season but his summer really has taken off with highlight type material. Fornes has proven that he can shoot the ball with the best of them. He knocks down jumpers consistently beyond the three point arc, and attack the lanes with no fear. The combo guard has very good size that can defend and score the ball in several ways. But the talent is there and has been proven that he can play with the best across the country.

” What I am looking for in a school is a relationship with the head coach, a possibility to compete for a spot on the floor as soon as I get on campus and also somewhere where I can be developed. “
