Garden City, NY (Future150) -- Every season a number of Canadian prospects flock south to play their high school ball here in the United States. The opportunity to get in front of more college coaches and face stiff competition on a more consistent basis is a valuable experience that many players take advantage of.

One of the more high profile transfers from up north this year was former Athlete’s Institute point guard Jaelin Llewellyn. The 6-foot-1 floor general had broken onto the scene at the HoopHall classic his sophomore season, and wanted to spend his junior year challenging himself; so he transferred to the Virginia Episcopal School.

“Most of the decision was academic, I wanted to push myself in the classroom, the opportunity has been bigger for me here where I can be the point guard and have the ball in my hands,” he said of his transfer to VES.

If that name rings a bell, it’s because that’s where current Kentucky forward Sacha Killeya-Jones honed his craft and ultimately rose up the rankings his junior and senior years, and Llewellyn is hoping for a similar result.

Considered to be one of, if not the top Canadian point guard in the class of 2018, there are already a number of suitors for the newest member of Team Loaded (VA).

Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton are the latest to get involved, while Providence, Creighton, UNLV, Tennessee, Wake Forest and Fairfield have all offered.

Providence, Creighton, Wake Forest, Harvard and Princeton have been in contact  “Almost every day” at this point. Llewellyn is far from making a decision though, as he’s yet to visit a college campus and is very open to other programs getting involved.

It’s clear that he is very early in the recruitment process, which means there could be a lot of movement in the coming months. Throw in the fact that The Adidas Gauntlet is as strong as it’s been in the past few years and stocked with top talent, there will be plenty of opportunity to challenge himself as a player and prove himself as a prospect; and Llewellyn wouldn’t have it any other way.
