Surprise Paradise Honors point guard Jalen Scott announced on social media Wednesday that he has committed to play basketball at Colorado State.
The 6-foot-3 rising senior averaged 12 points, six assists, five rebounds and 2.4 steals for the 22-6 3A teams last season.
“It’s a blessing being able to say your going to college for free for something you love to do,” Scott said. “I chose them because it was an opportunity I could’ve missed out on.”
Paradise Honors coach Zach Hettel said that Scott’s unselfish play and athleticism will give him a chance to make an impact in college.
“He’s a pass-first, selfless old-school kind of guard,” Hettel said. “Elite passer and great athlete.
“Very smart player and a kid who is going to get a chance to make an impact right away.”
