NY2LASPORTS.COM - 2015 INTRODUCTION - JAYLEN KEY
Antonio Curro — NATIONAL RECRUITING DIRECTOR - NY2LASPORTS.COM
While a stellar 2013 class heads into their senior year in the state of Wisconsin, a quickly developing 2015 class continues to see names emerge on the local, regional, and national radar. One such talent is 2015 F Jaylen Key of Homestead High School, a talented forward who has opened some eyes despite only scratching the surface of his potential.
Standing at 6-5 and weighing a little over 175 pounds, Key is the son of former Marquette University High School and Marquette University standout Damon Key. A virtual unknown heading into his freshman year at Homestead, Key quickly emerged as one to know over the past year as he saw rapid development and improvement in his game while playing on the varsity as a freshman and at the 17U level on the grassroots travel circuit.
Equipped with a nice frame, size, length, and solid instincts, Key has shown an improved ability to score in transition, solid rebounding skills, decent agility and athleticism, a mid-range game that extends to about 15 feet, and the ability to step away and knock down the trey ball on occasion. Still developing physically and a bit raw in some areas as is the case with most young prospects, Key has impressed with his ability to compete and produce at the highest levels at his age and with continued growth and development he looks the part of legitimate prospect to pay close attention to and he should see his recruiting stock soar in the coming months as he evolves given the pedigree, physical tools, and upside he hits the court with each day.
Key played with the TP Elite program during the grassroots travel season.
