Jaylin Fleming Soaring, Getting Ready For July

by Anthony Ray | Posted on Sunday, June 11th, 2017

After moving to the state of Arizona last fall from Chicago, after a storied national career as a youngster, Arcadia High School's talented 6-foot-3, 185-pound rising senior point guard Jaylin Fleming is now getting settled after a good junior season and a strong performance this spring for himself.

Fleming surprisingly left the city of Chicago in the fall to travel to the state of Arizona to attend Hillcrest Prep Academy, but after he and his family did not like what was happening at the school, he decided to enroll at Arcadia High School.  It was a very difficult ride for Fleming, as he had to pick up his basketball career in another part of the the United States - leaving all of his family and friends to pursue a better life in the state of Arizona.

"The violence in Chicago had gotten to be too much,"said Jaylin's father John Fleming.  "I wanted a better life and future for my children, so we made the move.  This isn't about basketball - it was about a better opportunity for my children."

Overcoming obstacles hs never been tough for Fleming.  While it would be almost catastrophic for most, it never shows for Jaylin Fleming, as he is always confident and always wears a tremendous smile on his face.  Fleming is a very well-mannered and disciplined young man with a very strong belief in God - all of which fuels him daily to work on his game 2-3 hours every day. Arizona kids can take a nice lesson from such a young prospect.

This past season, Fleming averaged 10.3 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds per/game on the season, while helping lead his Arcadia team to an impressive 23-4 overall record on the season.  Arcadia HS became one of the hottest teams in the state last season, and Fleming was a major part of the team's success.  Arcadia would eventually fall in the state playoffs to Liberty High School (93-89).

Fleming would carry over his strong play into the NCAA Spring Evaluation Period, while playing for his club team, Powerhouse Hoops Red 17U.  Fleming would play inspired basketball and also lead his team to consecutive wins where he scored game winning shots at the buzzer.  Fleming raised a lot of eyebrows with his overall play and leadership qualities this spring.

As a result, Fleming is hearing from double-digit division-I programs currently for his future services, and already has a division-I offer for himself.  We are unable to list the schools at this time, but Fleming is hearing from schools at all levels.  He has also been invited to attend numerous Elite Camps at different colleges across the country.

While Fleming is a quiet kid, he is definitely a leader and enjoys the big moment.  In fact, as a result, he has been invited to Belize to speak to hundreds of youth at a leadership conference in the near future, where Jaylin will be a featured speaker.

As a mere 7th grader and a top-rated national middle school prospect,  Fleming was regarded as the nation's #1 rated prospect in the 2018 class as a youngster.  As a youth in the south side of Chicago, Fleming developed an ability to become a wizard with the basketball in his hands at a very young age - making guest appearances on such top-rated talk shows as Jay Leno (NBC) and also The George Lopez Show.  Fleming was regarded as the nation's top prospect in his class for several years.  As a result of his youthful exploits, he received serious national attention by the nation's elite basketball scouts, and also was one of the nation's most viewed prospects on You Tube - receiving millions of views worldwide.

Fleming will now look to enter into his final busy recruiting month of July for himself - the most important month of his basketball life, and something that he has worked all of his life for.  All the years of practice and development, and a tremendous commitment to the game will come down to this July for Fleming.  And he will be ready.
