Nevada lands 2021 three-star wing Jalen Weaver

The Nevada men’s basketball team just landed one of its highest recruits in program history.

Jalen Weaver, a three-star wing listed at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, announced his commitment to the Wolf Pack Saturday, via Twitter.

According to 247 Sports’ grading tracker, Weaver is the 5th-highest recruit in program history — placing behind Jordan Brown, Luke Babbitt, Devearl Ramsey and Devonte Elliott. He chose Nevada over offers from Loyola Marymount, Massachusetts, Montana State and Tulsa.

“I just love the relationship that I have with the coaches,” Weaver told’s Travis Branham on why he committed to Nevada.
