2008, July: ESPN’s Rose in G.A. to evaluate Peach Jam stars
August 14, 2008
Jalen Rose, a 13-year NBA veteran and commentator for ESPN and ABC, was seen among coaches and spectators at the Nike Peach Jam on Monday.
The member of Michigan's famed "Fab Five" squad and Detroit, Mich., native is familiar with the prep circuit, having played prep basketball for more than a decade ago at Southwestern High School in Detroit.
"There are some real talented players here, and it's a great opportunity, not only for (players) to showcase themselves in front of the top college evaluators in the country, but to play against top-notch talent from other regions in the country," Rose said. "It's always a good measuring stick (for a player) and that's why I always appreciated playing AAU ball."
