Explosive guard from Halifax Prep commits to men's basketball

Head coach Rastko Popovic is pleased to announce dynamic guard Jahnian Simmonds from Halifax Prep has committed to the Concordia Stingers men’s basketball program.

“We are thrilled to add Jahnian to our talented recruiting class,” said Popovic. “He is an explosive guard who excels in transition and getting to the basket. He’s very capable of creating his own shot as well as setting up his teammates. We look forward to working with him and seeing him in a maroon and gold uniform once we are allowed back on the court.”

In 2019, the six-foot-one Simmonds played 10 games against top Canadian programs, averaging 20.3 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.3 assists a game.

Founded in 2017, Halifax Prep is the first ever basketball prep program in Nova Scotia.

Simmonds will leave his home of North Preston, N.S. and come to Montreal in the summer. While at Concordia he will study in the Human Relations program.
