As reported by Andrew Slater tonight the Blue Devils have offered class of 2021 point guard Jaylen Blakes out ofd Blair Academy. Blakes is rated just outside the top 100 prospects and ranked currently as a 4 star prospect. The offer comes as the Blue Devils are looking to shore up their backcourt and provide more ball handling and depth. Blakes is an energy bringer and at 6’2 with a 6’8 wing span he could bring some intangibles to the Blue Devils backcourt.
Per Jaylen’s high school coach: “He is an elite shooter, he is an elite free-throw shooter, he is a multi-positional defender, he is a winner, and he is an unbelievable character kid,”
The New Jersey guard hold offers from Pitt, Connecticut, Depaul, Georgetown, Illinois, East Carolina and others.
