Brandon Jennings

On Wednesday, Brandon Jennings received the Naismith National High School Player of the Year award. He helped his Oak Hill Academy team finish the season with a 34-4 record. He had a tremendous senior season really having to provide a majority of the scoring for his team to succeed.

Brandon averaged 35.5 points, 6.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 3.3 steals per game this year. He is an elite prospect that will be heading to (Point Guard U) next fall the University of Arizona. He has the ability to impact a game in a number of ways with scoring, playing making and leadership.

Now that his high school career is nearing an end you can look back on his career and say that he was one of the best players to ever attend the national power Oak Hill Academy. In this season he set the single game scoring record at Oak Hill Academy going for 63 points. He also set the single-season point total with 1,312 passing Josh Smith’s 980 during the 2003-2004 season.

“Brandon is one of the quickest point guards to ever play for me,” said Steve Smith, Oak Hill head basketball coach. “His presence and talent will truly be missed.”
