Another rising Junior in Michigan’s 2021 class is Jaden Akins.  When it comes to being a lightning quick scoring guard, Akins is that kind of player.  His shiftiness and ability to create his own shot and for others is what separates him from other guards.  

His high school coach at Farmington, Terrance Porter, has seen his game improve over the last year.  “Jaden is a gym rat and puts in extra time before and after practice to improve,” says Porter. “He wants to be the best player he can be.  He’s continuing to improve in his leadership and making his teammates better while putting them into position to be successful.”  

This season for the Farmington Falcons he’s averaging 23 points and 5 assists per game. He currently has offers from plenty of NCAA Division I schools including:  Michigan State, Depaul, Georgia Tech, Xavier, Northwestern, Mississippi State, Missouri, Central Connecticut St., Western Michigan, Toledo and Houston Baptist.

His arsenal was on full display in a game vs. Detroit CMA earlier this season, where he dropped 37 points hitting 9 threes.  The impressive part about the game was that he made shots off the bounce and coming off of screens.  He showed why he’s a coveted recruit for NCAA Division I schools and will be a recruit to keep track of this season.  

The Farmington Falcons and Akins next game is at 7pm at Southfield A&T on Friday January 30th.
