Defensive stud

Jayden Castillo, @JCastillo24_ , 5'9, 145, c/o 26 from Cabell Midland High School, WV is a dynamic high-energy athlete that can natural game changer. Jayden is a solid triple-threat scoring option with a soft touch but his thread-the-needle passing and the scrappy defense is special. Quick and crafty handles along with great court vision and a high IQ allow Jayden to be an awesome floor general and facilitator. The things Jayden accomplishes on defense at his size are impressive. Jayden biggest improvement over the AAU session was his passing. Jayden averaged 10pt and 7ast. With a huge 20-point game against Team Loaded. Jayden has set his goal to start for the varsity this season and be a big part of fueling this team and making a deep run in the postseason. Jayden will have to continue to elevate those skills and thrive at becoming the leader on the floor effectively. What coaches should know is with his grit and tenacity he won't ever be outworked or quiet. What sets Jayden apart is his warrior mentality matched with his high IQ. My assessment is Jayden is mid to small D2 or D3. But with I high ceiling with hard work Jayden would consider any good fit for his skills to be utilized the most. Jayden must maximize every minute he can and focus hard to play fiercely against bigger players consistently letting his game make room for him by turning the right heads.
