Jaiden Delaire, a four-star forward prospect out of the 2018 recruiting class, has committed to play for the Stanford Cardinal.
He is actually reclassifying back to his original 2018 class, joining the program in roughly a month, as he was nearly going to end up in the 2019 recruiting class instead.
Considered a top-80 prospect, according to most reputable recruiting service sites, his commitment now gives the Stanford Cardinal five total players for the 2018 class, with two of those considered four-star talents.
Delaire was being pursues by several big boy programs, but it appears his being recruited by Adam Cohen was enough to convince him to join the Pac-12 school.
Of note: Cohen was recently a guest on the Marching To Madness podcast.
An interesting prospect because some project Jaiden Delaire to play small forward, with others suggesting he will spend a lot of time at the power forward spot. Either way, that’s not a bad problem for Stanford to have this season, as having a guy who can play multiple positions isn’t a bad thing.
Furthermore, he does project to be a player of relative impact from the day he hits campus. While he might fail to put up gaudy numbers from day-one, he should contribute in meaningful ways this season.
