Jaden Newman is probably the only 9-year-old playing varsity high school basketball and is only in the 4th grade. On top of that, she’s already being recruited by a major collegiate program.
Don’t let Jaden’s age and size fool you currently she averages 14.8 points and 7.5 assists per game.
Earlier this month, Jaden received an official recruiting letter from the University of Miami’s women’s basketball program. Miami’s coach, Derrick Gibbs, put a call into the Newman family though Jaden’s Downey Christian School. Jaden, who is also coached by her father, made an unofficial recruitment visit to Miami, but it’s actually not her top school of choice, Connecticut is.
Jaden is definitely one kid to watch out for!
