Jayden Scrubb is a 6’3 wing from Trinity High School in Louisville, KY. Trinity is currently 25-2 on the year and is not only a top team in Kentucky, but one of the top teams in the country. Along with Scrubb, Trinity’s roster features three nationally ranked prospects.
Scrubb is a top Kentucky prospect in the 2018 class and has multiple D-I offers. His teammates David Johnson (2019) and Justin Powell (2020) both have “Power Five” conference scholarship offers. “This season is really bigger than me,” says Scrubb. “We just want to go out there and try and win every game we play.”
Through 27 games, Scrubb is averaging a team high 18.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He’s shooting just over 51% from the field and is shooting 37% from 3-point range. The senior score inside and out, and is capable of dunking on anyone off the drive. “I’ve really tried to focus on showing aggressiveness from the wing position this season.”
Scrubb spent last summer playing for Adidas Gold circuit’s Louisville Magic. With the Magic, he was able to put his skills and talents up against top players from around the country. “Playing with the Magic really helped me realize that I can compete against the best out there.”
Playing with the Magic also helped him gain the exposure needed to get scholarship offers. Scrubb currently holds offers from Samford, Wintrhop, Youngstown State, and California State Long Beach.
With six games remaining in regular season play, there’s still a lot of work to be done before committing to a school. One thing is sure – if Trinity can make it to the state tournament and play at Rupp Arena, expect (as is always the case at the state tournament) more interest to come Jayden’s way.
