The sky is the limit for NBA Academy India's student-athlete Janmejay Singh

"Very young and very raw. But, I think, [the] sky is the limit with him."

That's what Ronald Cass, a player development coach at the NBA Academy India since June of 2018, recently said about Janmejay Singh.

Singh, a 13-year-old boy from the Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh, was one among six prospects selected at the 2019 ACG-NBA Jump Finals to be added to NBA Academy India's roster.

"We call Janmejay, JJ," says Scott Flemming, Technical Director at the NBA Academy India.

"He's very young. He's only 14-years-old. But he has good height, he has good instincts."

"My goal is that I want to represent India abroad. I want to take India to the next level through basketball," says JJ.

Singh has already represented India in the Jr. NBA development circles. He was one of the 10 boys announced to represent India at the recent Jr. NBA Global Championships at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando.
