Kendrick has plenty of offers

This past weekend caught up with Jelan Kendrick on Georgia Tech's campus. The six-foot-six 190-pound wing showed off his game Friday night at the Wallace Prather memorial classic with a win over the Georgia Tornadoes AAU club.

Kendrick lived up to his billing as the #6 overall Small Forward in the 2010 class as he showed a nice touch around the basketball with little effort and displayed a smooth jumper from about 17 feet and in. Basketball analyst Jerry Meyer breaks down Kendrick's game from this weekend's action.

"A master at the hesitation move, Kendrick has a heavy dose of old school craftiness to his game," Meyer said. "He has the potential to be a better version of Ohio State's Evan Turner."

"I'm best at getting my team involved and getting them in position to get us a bucket to win the game, "Kendrick said.
Schools are hard after this top player such as Georgia Tech, Georgetown, UConn, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, FSU, and Clemson."

"I'm sitting on about 29 offers right now, Georgia Tech is one of them and I have plenty more," he said. "I do not really have any top teams at the moment and I am just trying to feel everybody. Everyone is putting in the same work trying to recruit me right now."

Jelan said he has a busy summer planned.

"I am going to a couple of camps and trying to finish the summer strong," he said. "I am trying to go to as many tournaments as I can and get the name Hoop Planet out."

"As far as visits go, my coach and my dad handle that. In the future, I do plan on visiting Georgia Tech."

The new coaching staff at The University of Georgia is trying to make some waves in the AAU circuit and have targeted Kendrick as part of their 2010 class.

"Georgia contacted me a couple of weeks ago and I have an offer from them. Head Coach Mark Fox seems like a good man, as well as the other coaches. I'm not sure how they are personally because I haven't had time to develop a relationship with them, but I had a good feeling with them as I have with some other schools."
