ESPN No. 27 ranked high school junior point guard Jaelin Llewellyn has committed to Princeton.

 

The 6-2 floor general averaged 17.9 points, 4.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.1 steals this season for Virginia Episcopal School (Lynchburg, VA).

 

“This recruiting process has been long and exciting, and I want to thank each and every school that has believed in who I am, and my abilities,” Llewellyn said via Twitter. “In the future, I believe I can be a professional on the court and off the court. With that being said, I’m glad to announce that I’m committed to Princeton University.”

 

Indiana Sports Coverage’s Brian Falvey loves Llewellyn’s game.

 

“Llewellyn uses elite speed to blow by defenders with great ease,” wrote Falvey. “He gets into the paint easily and can keep his head on a swivel during the break.”

 

“One thing I saw that set him apart was his shooting touch,” added Falvey. “His step back ability and range, coupled with a smooth and effortless stroke was noticeable for me. Shooting will always be king in the game of basketball, and finding guys who have good form and can hit 3’s is always going to take priority.”

 

Llewellyn is a Canada native who played at Orangeville Prep Academy before coming to Virginia Episcopal.

 

The Tigers beat out the likes of power programs such as Virginia, Purdue, Florida, Tennessee, and Stanford to land the coveted Llewellyn.
