Jaeden Mustaf is a 6’4 rising freshman point guard at DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. A gifted shooter, superb ballhandler, and premier defender...however his most compelling basketball trait is being a clutch performer. Never one to shy away from the critical moments, Jaeden embodies the “Mamba Mentality” with his desire to give all he’s got and win at all costs. As a young player he was given the nickname “Lil Kobe” , partly because he would figure out a way to get his shot off, but has grown into a more complete basketball player with an acute basketball IQ who cherishes every moment on the basketball court like his basketball idol, the late great Kobe Bryant.
As a scholar athlete, Jaeden’s favorite academic subject is math and he finished the 8th grade with a 4.0 GPA.
Basketball bloodlines run deep in his veins. He is the son of Jerrod Mustaf, the 1st round draft pick of the New York Knicks in 1990 and Psaha Luke-Mustaf, who was the first ‘ball girl’ for the New York Knicks in 1989 and Miss Trinidad and Tobago/USA 1990.
