Jaelin Llewellyn’s recruitment heats up; provides update

It’s only a matter of time before Jaelin Llewellyn propels himself from unranked to a 3, or even 4, star status. Though still unranked for the time being, according to 247Sports, the Canada native received ten Division I offers in just a span of two weeks. Headlined by Purdue and Virginia, several high-major schools have jumped into Llewellyn’s recruitment as of late.

Charlotte, Cincinnati, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, George Washington, Harvard, Penn State, Purdue, Rhode Island, and Virginia all have offered the 6’2″ point guard from late April to early May.

Creighton, Providence, Stanford, Tennessee, UNLV and Wake Forest have previously offered as well.

Llewellyn told College Pride Press that he hears from Cincinnati, Harvard, Penn State, Princeton, Purdue, Stanford and Wake Forest the most, but “hear[s] from most pretty frequently.”

Formerly attending Orangeville Prep in Canada, Llewellyn transfered to Virginia Episcopal School to play in the United States. He stated, “part of my move to Virginia Episcopal was to challenge myself more in the classroom.” He added that academics will be valued rather heavily in his recruitment and “is definitely something I’m looking for in a college.” Other factors he considers in a school are immediate opportunities to play as well as overall development as a player.

After the final live period concludes, Llewellyn and his family plan to take a thorough look at his options for college. He was unable to provide a timetable for a decision, but seemingly aims to announce sometime during his senior year.
