Catching Up with NC 2022 G Jefferson McLamb

Jefferson McLamb is a rising junior at Wesleyan Christian Academy in the NC 2022 class. The skilled slashing guard does a great job of using his length and athleticism to get to the rim in the halfcourt as well as in transition. McLamb has a high basketball IQ and plays hard on both ends of the floor. He is capable of going to the glass to get boards for his team. McLamb has a knack for finishing around the basket, but he can also shoot the ball with great form and shot mechanics. Jefferson will be playing travel ball with Team Flash and is definitely one for coaches to keep a close eye on as he continues to grow and develop.
