Jalen Wilson is a known for his skills as a basketball player, Jalen is a 21-year-old American college basketball player,
Jalen was born into the family of basketball players Derale and Lisa Wilson.
The Kansas Jayhawks take on the North Carolina Tar Heels in the final game of Division I college basketball. No. 1 Kansas defeated No. 2 Villanova in the Final Four, while UNC defeated Duke in the other semi-final.
Jalen Wilson has made a great name for himself, as he emerged as a key player for the Jayhawks, scoring 11 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the win over Villanova. He averaged 11.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in the regular season this year.
Derale, who is Wilson’s father, was a TCU basketball player who subsequently went on to play professionally in Europe, and his mother, Lisa, was an Oklahoma State signee who went on to play college basketball at Seminole State College and then Oklahoma City University.
Lisa’s career was tragically cut short due to an ACL injury, and the NCAA championship game is expected to draw Jalen Wilson’s mother and father. They’ve been in the stands the entire tournament, which Lisa says has caused her “so much more anxiety.”
Wilson was a consensus four-star recruit coming out of high school, and 247Sports ranked him as the 46th-best player in the 2019 class. Jalen had an offer from North Carolina before committing to Kansas, and as fate would have it, that’s who he’ll face in the title game.
They must be very proud of their son for following on their path and achieving success in the field so early.
