Injury hasn’t stopped interest in Jakeenan Gant — Cuse Clicks

Jakeenan Gant was headed toward a big-time spring performance, and his stock was steadily rising on the EYBL circuit. Through two sessions in April with Southern Stampede, Gant averaged 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds, shooting better than 57 percent from the field. Then he played in a small tournament after the second EYBL session — and sprained his ankle, sidelining him for most of the spring. “I really couldn’t prove anything,” Gant said. “I was very disappointed.” That hasn’t slowed his recruitment very much, as Georgia, Alabama, Florida State, North Carolina State, Miami, Florida and Georgia Tech are all in hot pursuit, with South Carolina, Syracuse, Maryland and Memphis also showing interest.
