A handful of prospects class from Minnesota's 2019 class have made it on to Division 1 programs radar led by Matthew Hurt, Tyrell Terry, Zeke Nnaji, Courtney Brown Jr and David Roddy. Jaeden King is primed to be the next in line to join this group as he’s continued to develop and improve with hard work over the past few seasons.

A 6-5 standout wing at Cretin Derham Hall, few prospects in Minnesota’s 2019 class have shown the growth and potential over the last 3 months that Cretin Derham Hall shooting guard Jaden King has. King physically has taken a major leap after growing around 2 inches since last spring while filling out his frame and putting on some muscle. This high school season King has been very productive and is currently one of the top shooters in the state while playing next to three other Division 1 caliber prospects. The sharpshooting wing has filled it up from long range making 3 or more trey balls in 14 of his first 19 games of the season and he’s knocked down as many as 6 trey balls on two separate occasions this season.

Equipped with nice size, King possesses a high caliber shooting guard skill set, prototype size and length, and good athleticism. His ability to light it up from behind the arc is his strength and he’s shown an ability to do just that with a quick release that he utilizes both off the catch and moving without the ball.

After decommitting from Augustana, King is now drawing interest from Iowa, Drake, Central Florida, and North Dakota amongst others.  The talented junior is one to pay close attention to this spring and summer as he’s starting to ascend and his best basketball lies in front of him.

He plays with the Howard Pulley Panthers program during the grassroots travel season.
