Coming off a stellar season with Salt Lake City, Jared brings a combination of skills,” said Jovohn Shepherd, General Manager and Vice President, Basketball Operations for the Ottawa BlackJacks Basketball Club. “He has an adept ability to shoot the three-ball, get into the lane and create for his teammates. Jared’s versatility gives us depth at a number of positions. A young talent that is truly just scratching his surface.”
