Kentucky target Jaden Hardy models game after Devin Booker, continues stretch of dominant play

Jaden Hardy is arguably the top scoring guard in the class of 2021, and after learning who he models his game after, it’s easy to understand why.

On Friday evening, ESPN traveled to Henderson, NV to broadcast the highly-anticipated matchup between Coronado High School and Bishop Gorman High School on ESPNU.

And as part of the broadcast festivities, ESPN’s Paul Biancardi asked the nation’s No. 5 overall prospect a series of questions in an “On The Clock” segment to learn more about his game, his personality, and what he’s like off the basketball floor.

When asked about who he modeled his game after, the five-star guard – widely seen as a heavy Kentucky lean – threw out a familiar name to the Big Blue Nation.
