“We’re really excited about getting Jalen,” said East Tennessee State coach Murry Bartow, the son of former UCLA coach Gene Bartow. “Jalen has some versatility to his game. He can score and he can do it from either guard spot.”

“We don’t make any promises or guarantees (to a recruit), but we never recruit a junior college player unless we think he can come in and play and be part of the rotation,” Bartow said. “We’re looking forward to Jalen helping us a lot.” – From The Journal Times
