Jaedon LeDee is the latest prospect to pick up an offer from the Wildcats when he spoke to Arizona last week, on his way to the USA Basketball Mini-Camp in Colorado Springs. LeDee (2018, Kinkaid High School) is a highly versatile and skilled guard/forward out of Houston, Texas. He is a 5-star recruit and certainly a player to watch moving forward.

LeDee already possesses an impressive resume as a member of the USA Basketball family and has been invited to the Adidas All-American camp and Adidas Nations and Global Nations events.
What really makes LeDee stand out is his work ethic and hunger to improve his game.
“He has an unbelievable desire to be coached hard ” said Rhossi Carron, the program director of Basketball University – LeDee’s club program.
LeDee is extremely versatile on offense and can score at all three levels with his inside-outside game and ability to create his own shot. LeDee has also been utilized as a post player.
“We found we had huge advantages playing him in the post as a 2 at 6’7” said Carron.
While it is still early in the recruiting process for LeDee, he had many good things to say about Arizona.
“It’s a great program with great tradition, I like the way they develop big skilled guards” said LeDee.
LeDee was excited about his offer from the Wildcats and was very familiar with the program.
“A lot of great players come through Arizona, anywhere you go everybody knows about Arizona basketball even here in Texas, all around it’s a great system,” he said.
Jaedon LeDee is certainly a player to track throughout his recruitment. Although he has no official visits to Arizona planned yet, the recruiting process is just getting started for the future star.
“When you put that much talent, that much passion for the game, combined with his desire to improve, I think the sky is the limit for that kid” said Carron.
