After receiving an offer from Wilberforce last week, 6’1” hybrid Teon Jennings (2018) is set on playing for the in-state NAIA program.
In fact, the Beechcroft senior’s mind was made up even before they offered.
“I’m going to go to Wilberforce, because that’s where I was going to go even before I got the offer,” Jennings told Prep Hoops.
“I like the coach. Most of the players are leaving too, so I got to gel with some new people,” Jennings explained.
Jennings has already informed their coaching staff of his commitment. Wilberforce has carved out an idea of how they’re going to play Jennings, a versatile prospect who defends multiple positions but has guard skills.
“I think they’re going to have me at the 1. I got to build my 1 skills up,” Jennings said. “And I think they want me to be the same player I was at Beechcroft.”
As far as point guard skills, Jennings wants to tighten up his handle and perimeter defense.
Jennings was also considering Columbus State, who offered him back in December. Otherwise, his recruitment has been quiet since breaking his foot in the District Finals against Bishop Hartley.
However, he’s looking forward to getting back on the court soon.
“I came down on Payton [Collins]’s foot … I get the boot off on the 18th of this month,” Jennings explained.
With Jennings’ commitment to Wilberforce, he is the third Beechcroft senior to make a college decision. He joins Jelani Simmons (Youngstown State) and DaTrey Long (Urbana). Therron Jennings, Teon’s brother, and Elijah Bishop remained undecided.
