Jalen Young is a critical piece of a young and talented Cornerstone High School team. He’s a 6-3 junior small forward and a rising prospect in Michigan and a player we should all keep an eye on. He’s athletic, with a good mid range game and can step up on the defensive end. I recently caught up with him for a question and answer session:
