(2015) JALEN JENKINS

                                    JALEN JENKINS
   Jalen's game is very smooth. He has the ability to hurt a team inside and out. He has a high motor and is very athletic. His ball handling is very good and it compliments his mid range game very well. With his height plus his athletic ability,Jalen has a chance to be a good D1 prospect. Updated video N/A

  1. Arizona’s "PLAYER SPOTLIGHT" Jenkins-Burkett

    Top player class of 2015
    If you haven’t heard of him before, now you have, 6’4 (PG) Jalen Jenkins out of Mesa HS is Hoopsreport’s UNANIMUS choice as the TOP PROSPECT IN THE CLASS OF 2015 IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA. Jalen is a SPECIAL SPECIAL PLAYER who can score with the best of them, plays big in big games, locks down on defense and is very athletic. Jalen has the on court presence of an older more mature player which he has consistently displayed each time I've watched him play. Jalen is a HIGH MAJOR PROSPECT and I would be very surprised if he is not able to hold his current position as the top prospect in Arizona. Jenkins-Burkett is hearing from D1 school's Indiana, UCLA, Marquette, Arizona, St. Mary's, ASU, Cal, Washington St. Oregon among others with some offers now. Jalen is 6-foot-4, 185 lb now. A super strong guard that can guard 5'9 guards to 6'8 post players. He's good student and it want belong before the Kentucky, Duke, and UNC come calling too

    1. As a veteran teacher at Mesa High where Jalen is currently a "Super Soph." and as the biggest KY Wildcat fan, I'm advising Coach Cal to come knocking quickly as Jalen IS A PHENOMENON, a TRUE SUPER-STAR WITH UNLIMITED POTENTIAL!!! What is also remarkable about this incredible athlete and young man is he is an outstanding student who made straight "A's" in my World History class! -Mary Poe

  2. Jalen Jenkins - 2015 Point Guard from Mesa High School
    Jenkins is the top 2015 player in the state of Arizona. Jenkins is a very flashy passer, and has great court vision. He seemed to pass before teammates were even open. He has long arms and his length caused a lot of problems for opposing guards. His dribbling was second to none; he weaved around defenders and found open teammates with ease. He did not look for his shot on a regular basis, but did not shy away from attacking when he saw the chance. Jenkins is athletic and is only going to continue to get bigger. The sophomore to be has received an offer from Arizona State, and Washington State, Arizona, Stanford, Oregon State, UCLA, Marquette, Indiana, Cal and Washington have shown interest. Jenkins is clearly one to keep an eye on over the next few years.

  3. Mesa coach Shane Burcar said colleges have been calling consistently about Jenkins, wondering where he will be playing this summer. Arizona State is his first scholarship offer but others will be coming. Jenkins said he is looking forward to the opportunity to further elevate his stock during the club ball season in July.

    “I like it, actually,” Jenkins said. “I like to be on the big stage.”

  7. Jalen Jenkins 6'4 (W/G) Mesa (Mesa, AZ) 2015
    Jalen was remarkable from his first game to his final game. Physically, Jalen is a tough draw for anyone as his supreme athleticism, speed, quickness and GOD given abilities put just about any one guarding him at a dis advantage. Jalen brought out all stops as he dominated anytime that he was in the game with a number of deep three's as well as the usual drive to the basket only to finish with a crowd pleasing thunderous throwdown. Jalen is an ELITE LEVEL PROSPECT that will definitely become a house hold name across the country by the end of spring 2013.

  11. Jalen Jenkins get ASU offer

    Mesa point guard Jalen Jenkins went on a visit to Arizona State on Friday and was offered a scholarship.

    He had a meeting with the Sun Devils coaching staff in which they discussed what he was looking for in a dream college. After that conversation, coach Herb Sendek extended the offer.

    “I was hoping they would,” Jenkins said. “It’s definitely an honor.”

    Jenkins will be a sophomore next season and may be the state’s top prospect in the class of 2015. He has garnered interest from Arizona, Stanford, Oregon State, UCLA, Marquette, Indiana, Washington and others.

    Mesa coach Shane Burcar said colleges have been calling consistently about Jenkins, wondering where he will be playing this summer. Arizona State is his first scholarship offer but others could be coming. Jenkins said he is looking forward to the opportunity to further elevate his stock during the club ball season in July.

    “(Burcar) didn’t back off me at all,” Jenkins said. “He threw me to the wolves and I had to learn on the go.”

    Jenkins is a pass-first point guard who can affect the game in various ways, Burcar said.

    “He”s one of the few high school basketball players who doesn’t care if he shoots the ball,” Burcar said.

  12. Class of 2015:

    Jalen Jenkins PG 6'4"185 Mesa HS-Jalen is suppose to be the top player in the state in his class with an ASU offer already on his resume. And after the 2 days, he didn't dissapoint anyone! Jalen, at this point of his career, has no equal athletically in the state for 2015 players. With his 6'4" height to go along with his 6'6" wingspan and a tremendous vertical leap to dunk on almost every play, you can see why he is a handful. But that doesn't define who he is as a player. 2 things will define him going forward. 1 is his pure vision of a true PG, which you rarely see in todays game. The 2nd thing is his high motor! He is relentless with everything he does. He does not stop guarding you, or trying to pursue a rebound on the glasss or hustling for a loose ball. The lefty is developing an outside shot to his game to keep the defense honest. Right now his elbow jumper is his best shot, but I'm sure he would love to have a 3pt shot to go along with it. His form is solid, but the ball sometimes comes out sideways. He basically can blow by anyone he want at will, but he has to keep improving! Off the court he is a very humble and fine young man. He is a high major.

    Jalen Jenkins  6-4  SOPH  SG/SF  Mesa HS  (2015)
    - The state’s top prospect in Arizona’s 2015 class.  Jenkins led his club program, the Arizona Ambassadors, to the championship in last week’s 15U Division.  Jenkins is a high energy, athletic talent that competes at a high level and makes plays.  A left hander, Jenkins is tough to defend as a result of his tremendous motor.  An excellent slasher and open court player.  An active rebounder and shotblocker.  Has a bright future ahead of him.

  14. Since this is “Vegas” Premierball, we drove out there with the intention to cover the Local kids making the trip. There were an AZ player that caught our attention 6’5″ Jalen Jenkins who has an offer from Arizona State on the table. He was head and shoulders above everyone in terms of athleticism.

    Jalen is super athletic with tons of potential.  He is old school in his approach always looking to attack both offensively and defensively. The Seattle transplant has been in Arizona for only a short time and has already made a name for himself. He was one of the best players in any class and didn’t care who was guarding him as he had one plan in mind and that was to get buckets.

  18. Mesa's Super sophomore prospect PG Jalen Jenkins has been very impressive Jenkins is simply a beast finishes with first Triple-double in over 20 years for Mesa High. 22 pts, 12 Rebs, 10 assists in win.

    Having a great season sophomore Jalen Jenkins is one of the fastest rising prospects in the state of Arizona.

    Mesa high Coach Shane Burcar after game told me that with most kids you have to teach that competitive fire. He never had to teach that to Jenkins.

    “Toughness” and Jalen Jenkins go together
    The state’s top defender regardless of class.

    Jenkins is rangy left-handed point guard with great size, savvy, and a non-stop motor. He affects the game in multiple ways due to his feel for the game and a willingness to win. He has a tight handle and a tremendous burst in transition.

    If Jenkins wanted to, he could be one of the top scorers on this Mesa roster because it is very hard for any player in Arizona to guard him. If that was his game, it could take away from what Mesa does best. That’s spread the floor, penetrate and kick the ball outside. Jenkins knows that this is the style that makes him and also his entire team successful.

    Jenkins is extremely talented the future with Jenkins handling the basketball for the Jackrabbits means success and will keep Mesa on top in Arizona D1 high school basketball.

  19. HoopsReport's 4th Annual Arizona Preseason All-State Team: Class of 2015 All-State Team

    You know how we do things here at HoopsReport, always saving the best for last and in Arizona's 2015 class the best just happens to be 6'4 SUPER ATHLETIC, BALL HAWKING (G) Jalen Jenkins out of Mesa HS.

    Jenkins is a superior athlete that has an outstanding motor and defensively, Jenkins is just as impressive. Jenkins has been Arizona's top prospect in the 2015 ever since his arrival in 2010 by way of Seattle, WA.

    Jenkins has a pretty good mid & long range game but "POSTERIZING FOES" is his forte.

    Defensively, Jenkins plays the passing lanes as good as anyone and just maybe the state’s top defender regardless of class.

    Look for Jenkins to have a big season for the Jack Rabbits and look for Jenkins to make noise this up coming spring and summer on the SPRING & SUMMER CIRCUIT.

    Jenkins will definitely be in HoopsReport's class of 2015 winter "National Player Rankings" once they are complete.
