Simeon 2022 shooting guard Jaylen Drane is one of the top incoming freshmen in the state.  The 6’2” shooting guard is long and angular.  He is explosive with the ball in transition having a great burst getting through the defense.  Wins off the dribble with smooth handles.  Jump shot definitely shots potential in the pull up game.  Sound passer that shows a nice IQ for his age.  Like what he could develop into on the defensive end with his length and anticipation.

He is running with Young & Reckless during the second half of the spring on the 15U level.

“It is going well.  It is a good team.  They like sharing the ball and getting touches.  I am the youngest guy, but they still look for me.”

Drane broke down his game for fans and coaches who haven’t seen him play.

“Pass first and get my teammates involved.  I wait for the game to come to me.  Move the ball around and get my teammates involved.”

Why was Simeon his choice for high school?

“It is a good program for me.  I like Rob Smith a lot.  I have a good relationship with him and the players.”
