Jalen Suggs isn't old enough to have a driver's license yet, but he's already got offers on the table to play college basketball.

Suggs, is a 6-foot-4, 170-pound, future five-star college basketball prospect. The Minnehaha Academy freshman already has offers pouring in for him to make a choice for the 2020-21 basketball season.

Suggs received another offer on Thursday – this one came from his home state.

As his first year of high school is just getting underway, Suggs already has offers from Baylor, Georgia Tech and Iowa State. In the case of Suggs, it's not real hard to see why coaches are salivating over him.
