Arizona's 2025 Class is loaded with talented prospects and is a very strong class overall. Recently, I discovered another very good looking young prospect in the class - Bradhsaw Mountain HIgh School's 6-foot-9 sophomore post Jayden Blasczyk. While Blasczyk has only been playing the game for a couple years, he looks to be a prospect that has nice upside and potential for the future.
The Bradshaw Mountain program is on the rise, as they have a program filled with talent. While they lost a lot to graduation, they will also return a lot as well from last year's team, led by the play of 6-foot-5 senior forward Ben Wilder and 6-foot-5 junior Mason Hunt. The overall play of Wilder and Hunt will be good enough to keep this team at the top of the 4A Standings all season, so the emergence of Blasczyk is big for this team, as he could provide excellent inside support and help for the team, even though he is a mere sophomore post.
Blasczyk comes from a very athletic family, one that is focused on sports heavily. His mother, Jill Blasczyk is a former star volleyball player for the University of Arizona, and is currently the Head Volleyball Coach @ Embry Riddle. As a result, Jayden comes from an athletic family, which suits him nicely on his long, athletic frame.
Jayden is a taller post prospect that stands 6-9 with his shoes on, but is still growing a great deal. He runs the floor very well and competes for rebounds and looks to block and change shots, while being very active around the paint. He plays with good intensity, but is still very raw offensively, so he will need to put in a lot of work to develop and catch up to other post players that have played the game much longer than he has. He has a thin frame currently, so he will need to get much stronger over time to compete against tougher competition, as he develops. He does have serious upside though as a prospect, so his future will depend heavily on his work ethic and willingness to be a player.
I will continue to keep a close eye on Blasczyk as he matures, and look forward to seeing him develop over time. A good looking prospect though for a talented 2025 Class. Just how good, only time will tell.
