2013 LIU Brooklyn commit Jahmal Lane set to go for next season
Good news continues to come the Blackbirds way as today it is known that 2013 commit Jahmal Lane out of St. Benedict’s Prep (post-grad) in Newark, New Jersey has gotten the necessary score on his SAT exam to be eligible right away for head coach Jack Perri and the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds in the coming 2013-14 season.
Lane tweeted the good news on his Twitter feed this morning (actually time was 11:18am, don’t know why 4:18pm appears on the tweet):
As you can see if you click on the Instagram link in the tweet, it is a picture coming from recruiting guru Alex Kline’s (@TheRecruitScoop) The Recruit Scoop website, stating he is qualified and “good to go”.
Lane had verbally committed to LIU Brooklyn during the early signing period but did not sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) due to the fact he was still academically ineligible. Now, with that he has qualified, he can finally sign his NLI during the regular signing period which starts on April 17.
This season, Lane has had at least six 20+ scoring games including a 32-point game back on January 23rd in a St. Benedict’s Prep win. Lane played at Plainfield High School in Plainfield, NJ his senior year in high school where he was named Union County (NJ) Player of the Year by the Newark Star-Ledger. He averaged 14 points and six rebounds a game on a 30-4 Plainfield High team, leading them to NJ state final appearance. He was also a teammate at Plainfield with FDU’s freshman point guard Sekou Harris.
Congratulations to Jahmal Lane on his academic achievement.
