9-year-old girl becomes youngest person ever recruited for division 1 college basketball team

Posted June 19th, 2014 @ 12:13pm

This is Jaden Newman and she’s amazing!!! She’s only 9 years old and she’s already been recruited by a Division 1 college basketball team. University of Miami’s assistant coach, Derrick Gibbs, spotted one of Jaden’s videos on YouTube and invited her to visit their campus. Her family is filled with all-star basketball players. Julian, her older brother, is in sixth grade and ranks in the top 100 high school players in the US. So where did her skills come from?? Both of her parents played basketball in High School – and now look…Jaden will probably play college ball and hopefully go to the WNBA.
