The start of practices in New Jersey is less than a week away, but one team will already have a significant blow to overcome. Dwight-Englewood guard Jayden LemondJaydenLemond6'2" | CGDwight-Englewood | 2023NJ announced yesterday that he will be transferring to Blair Academy and reclassifying to 2023. His move creates a huge impact across the Garden State as it changes the landscape for two different classes.

Dwight-Englewood loses its most dynamic ball-handler, leaving sophomore David MagerDavidMager6'3" | SGDwight-Englewood | 2022StateNJ more responsibility with the ball in his hands. The 6’3 lefty has a nice mid-range game and can get to the bucket, but he will have to be more of a facilitator on offense. Lemond was a crucial part of running Dwight-Englewood’s offense and Mager will be asked to pick up the slack.

Ayjani RasburyAyjaniRasbury6'2" | SGDwight-Englewood | 2022StateNJ had a strong summer for the Jersey Force 16U team and it should carry over into the season. The athletic 6’2 guard attacks the basket strong and the ball does not stick to his hands. Rasbury has the potential to run the offense for Dwight-Englewood which would be huge for the Bulldogs this season.

Lemond will get an opportunity to play for a talented Blair Academy squad due to his versatility.
