Jaron Blossomgame Pos: SF
GA (Chattahoochee HS)
#26 SF, 92 Grade
#33 PF, #119 Overall
Blossomgame is described as being Mr. Versatility. His range gives defenders’ headaches with his stroke extending to the 3-point arc. If the other team matches their 4 with Blossomgame, that defender must match Jaron’s chameleon-like ability to adjust anywhere on the floor to effectively defend him. He’s not your prototypical back-to-the-basket forward when positioned at the 4 and that makes him a problematic match up.
At the next level, Blossomgame should add more size if put at the 4. It would allow him to match up physically on the defensive end of the floor which in turn, would enable Jaron to not trust solely in his athletic ability. The alternative option would be to groom him at the 3.
As a high school junior last season, Blossomgame put up 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game for Chattahoochee High School (Johns Creek, Georgia). His best game may have come against South Forsythe where he dropped 42 points and 15 rebounds, which is considered one of the state’s most dominating performances last year.
Jaron committed to Clemson back in February of this year. It was said that Jaron liked the prestige of the ACC while also staying somewhat close to his Georgia surroundings. Prior to committing, Blossomgame’s recruitment began to flourish with bigger schools such as Minnesota, Iowa, Alabama and Georgia showing interest late. He had also received offers from Tennessee Tech, Georgia Southern, and Wichita State.
