Scorchers add American guard Jaylen Ray

Surrey Scorchers announced the signing of American guard Jaylen Ray last night.

Jaylen Ray is the first American signing of the season and joins the Scorchers on his professional debut at NCAA Div1 Hofstra University, New York.

The 6’2″ guard graduated and spent the 5 college years at Hofstra. Going 21-11 last season, Ray averaged 13 points and 3 rebounds while shooting an impressive 40% from deep.

The Hampton native enjoyed success with the team in the 2019/20 season leading the team to NCAA March Madness after dropping 17 points in the CAA Championship Finals.

The Sharp shooter is ranked second in program history for most 3-pointers as well as a school record in most games played in a Hofstra college career with 153.

“I feel ravenous to get started, but I’m honestly grateful to Coach Lloyd and the Scorchers organization for this opportunity,” Jaylen said.

“I’m really looking forward to showing the fans and the league what I can do, but most of all I want to bring a winning mentality to this team.”

Scorchers head coach Lloyd Gardner added: “I am delighted to welcome Jalen to the Scorchers. I believe he will be a great addition to our team and bring to BBL the leadership and goalscoring ability he has shown throughout his college career.

“We are delighted with his addition to our squad and look forward to him starting his professional career here in Surrey.”
