One of the top 2020 point guards in the DFW area, Jaylin Posey has been a priority for a handful of programs. We caught up with Posey this past weekend at TCU’s Elite Camp as he talked to us about his upcoming official visits & what is a fit for him.
I have visits scheduled with ORU (Oral Roberts, Sept 6&8), SFA (Sept 21-22nd) & will have one with Troy (Projecting last weekend in Sept.). All of the have been recruiting me evenly & I have built a strong relationship with the coaches.
I have a strong relationship with (Assistant) Coach Russell Springmann & (Head) Coach (Paul) Mills & really all their staff. They have been recruiting me hard and also telling me the things I like to hear especially how they will use me on the court. Sending me mail, texting me, anyway they can stay in contact they are doing just that.
(Head Coach) Scott Cross is an amazing dude. He has been recruiting me for a while even when he was a coach at TCU. He took the head job this year at Troy & he says I’m very high on his list. I like Coach Cross & excited to go on a visit there.
They said I’m going to be Jaylin Posey. Be a lead guard that can thrive in their system by scoring when needed and defending the best guard. They love guards that can make plays and they said I can come up and make an impact right away. UTA is close to home & I have a strong relationship with (Assistant Coach) Snoop Johnson & the entire staff.
They’ve been recruiting me for years. I have a real good relationship with (Assistant) Coach Wade Mason, prayers to him (cancer diagnosis) but he has played a big part in my recruitment and it’s a school I’m heavily considering.
Relationship with the staff is very important to Posey.
“I just want to trust the coaches are true to what they tell me. That’s a big thing for me. Building relationships & knowing I’ll have a chance to play the role they said they envision me to have.”
Look for an official visit with UTA for Jaylin in early October (Projecting first weekend). Posey will attend Grand Prairie this upcoming season and look for him to potentially make a verbal commitment prior to the fall signing period. A guard that really utilizes his length to make plays on both ends & disruptive as an individual defender, Posey has the tools to offensively be a big-time playmaker at the next level with some polishing. We will keep you guys up-to-date on Posey’s recruitment! stay tuned.
