Jeremy Hemsley, is a four-star 6-foot-3 combo guard out of Damien High in La Verne, Califorina and is ranked in the top 100 by ESPN, Scout.com and Rivals.com.

ESPN ranks  Jeremy Hemsley the highest of the three at 52nd nationally. Scout.com ranks him 54th and Rivals.com 77th.

In high school Hemsley plays point guard, but most scouts list him as a shooting guard with above average defensive abilities. Most scouting reports view Hemsley as an athletic slasher that plays with high intensity and leadership qualities. 

The Aztecs have three scholarships available for this class and are also in the running for 4 star recruits Cameron Walker, Stephen Thompson Jr. and Ernest Aflakpui.
