Jaylen Hands is a 2017 All-American calibre point guard out of Compton, California. The Compton Magic made a trip to Montreal, Quebec for the St. Laurent Express tournament, where Hands absolutely put on a show.
The 6’2 PG is verbally committed to UCLA and brings a full package to the game as an absolute playmaker for himself and teammates. He can break you down and pull up, or attack the rim and defy gravity.
Defensively, he must step up to take his game to the next level. He is extremely gifted physically and has great instincts, therefore very effective in the passing lanes. However, in preparation for the NBA level, where he hopes to be, he must bring a ferocious mentality to the defensive end and become a lock down defender, because he can be.
Hands is very cool, very calm, both ideal characteristics to have as a lead guard. He showed us that with continued development and pushing the bar, he could end up in the big leagues!
