Recruitment Q&A with 2022 five-star Jalen Duren

Do you have a current list of schools you’re focused on?

I do not have a current list of schools I’m focused on.

Which schools do you hear from the most?

As of right now, I hear from mostly Alabama, Kentucky, Auburn, Memphis, Michigan, Miami, Nova, and Arizona

Have you talked with anyone else in your class about possibly forming a package deal in college?

I have not spoken to anyone about teaming up in college.

What schools have you visited so far, either unofficially, officially, or virtually (zoom)?

I had an unofficial to Maryland and virtual visits to Arizona, Kentucky, and Memphis.

Are there any schools that are currently recruiting you that have not yet offered that you expect to offer you sometime in the near future?

Maybe North Carolina or Illinois.

Name a few schools that aren’t recruiting you at all, that you would like to receive an offer from sometime in the future.

Can’t think of any.

Is building a stacked recruiting class, and bringing top talent in with you a priority?


Did you have a dream school growing up?


Do you ever feel any pressure to stay home and play for the “hometown”/in-state school?

Not really.

Do you plan to cut your list of schools? If so, do you have a timetable for that?

I do plan to cut my list maybe around the summer.

Do you know how many you’ll cut it to? 10, 5, etc?

I don’t have a specific number right now.

Do you have a timeline for a commitment?
