Former Flint Carman-Ainsworth big man Jaylen Larry will be playing college ball at Rock Valley College in Rockford, Illinois this season. The 6-7 forward was courted by numerous JUCOs across Michigan before choosing Rock Valley.
Larry has potential to be a very solid big man at the JUCO level if he is dedicated to the program on and off the court. He has above average touch around the basket and, when he’s in shape, is more athletic than he’s given credit for. Several people I talked to believed Larry to be better than his high school teammate Dee Chapman, who will be playing his college ball at Prairie View A & M.
RVC competes in NJCAA Division III and went 12-18 last season. They return only three players from that team.
