Jaden Springer - "He's Staying Home" Commits to the Northside Christian Academy Knights

The national landscape at the next level is beginning to take shape.  National Phenom and Class of 2020 Standout Jaden Springer; who recently won the 2021 National Championship, finished 2nd in the 2020 National Championship, and played up in the 2019 D2 Nationals finishing 3rd – has just announced that he will be taking his talents to National High School Power Northside Christian Academy.

Springer will play for the Knights under the guidance and tutelage of former North Carolina standout and NBA player Jeff McGinnis.  The Knights who have been ranked by the USA Today as one of the nation’s top prep schools; recently as high as #3 in the country has also produced some of the nation’s top college prospects.

With the addition of Jaden Springer whose trajectory falls in line with the other top standouts from Northside; their local and national dominance looks to be secured for years to come.  Springer who already currently ranks as one of the nation’s best, plays the game on another level than most.  His intensity and effort combined with his natural skill set which includes a natural ability to make the players around him better and more productive makes his translation to the next level a certainty not a question.

Gary Springer
The son of 6’8 New York legend and superstar Gary Springer who was a McDonald's All-American and who also played at Iona University; where they still use his highlight tape as a recruiting tool – a NBA draft pick, his escapades are well documented; but some of the best Springer games and highlight may have been at Whitney Young Park on 139 th Street. What does this mean for Northside and rest of the country?  It means Springer has the bloodline and the pedigree – with all the intangibles a coach could ask for and skills that are being honed daily he wins no matter what uniform he puts on.  

P2bball.com would like to congratulate Jaden Springer; whose acceptance was not solely based on the round-ball – he even challenged himself academically taking both his regular entrance exam but he one for 9th grade as well.  Also congratulations to the Springer family who continue to do things the right way, and finally congratulations to the Northside Christian Academy Knights and Jeff McGinnis for recognizing not only the wonderful child that Jaden is but also the Superstar potential he possesses with the basketball.  

Nation watch out the Knights are not rebuilding they are clearly and simply reloading!
