2020 Huntington Prep (WV) forward Jaemyn Brakefield had recently named a Top 10 while making clear he was still open to newcomers. Tony Bennett took him up on that this evening while visiting with him in Huntington.
Brakefield has made trips to Auburn and WVU this month. He has scheduled officials the next two weekends to Louisville and Michigan, and a late October date with perceived favorite Ole Miss. Bennett is surely trying to secure a trip to Charlottesville in between.
His home is in Jackson, MS but Jaemyn is actually a native of Milwaukee. He teamed up with UVA commit Reece Beekman this past summer for Wisconsin based Phenom University on the Nike AAU circuit. The ultra versatile Brakefield had a terrific summer averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds.
