Four-star prospect Jaylen Fisher commits to UNLV

Thursday October 8th, 2015

Four-star guard prospect Jaylen Fisher has committed to UNLV, he announced Wednesday.

Fisher is the No. 55 prospect for 2016 on, and the top prospect in Tennessee. He was recruited by 16 other schools, according to Rivals, and ultimately chose UNLV over offers from Baylor, Indiana, Arkansas and others.

“I weighed out the pros and cons, and UNLV came out to be the best place for me. I really liked the atmosphere,” Fisher told ESPN. “I love the way they get up and down the court and the pieces that I will get to play with, like Goodluck Okonoboh, Patrick McCaw, Dwayne Morgan, Derrick Jones and Stephen Zimmerman, if he is not one and done.”

Fisher averaged 20 points and eight assists per game as a junior, and will be joined in Las Vegas by fellow 2016 commits Justin Jackson, Christian Vital and Carlos Johnson.
