JALEN GRAHAM

Ready to make a difference in NWA.

About

Before transferring to the University of Arkansas, Jalen Graham was an All-PAC-12 forward, playing three seasons at Arizona State (giving him two years of eligibility with the Hogs). Standing at 6-foot-9 and 220 lbs., Jalen scored 287 points during his last season with the Sun Devils and dished out 50 of his 70 career assists while getting 23 of his 38 career steals.

Stats

Jalen has played in 73 career games, including 43 starts with the Sun Devils and tallied 546 career points (7.0 avg.) with 315 career rebounds (4.4 avg.). He additionally recorded 90 blocked shots (1.2 per game).

PERSONAL

While growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, Jalen attended Mountain Pointe High School. He was raised by his mother, Suzie, and has a brother, Devin, and sister, Jenah. The basketball player he looks up to the most is the Las Angeles Lakers’ Anthony Davis.

Jalen says he faced many obstacles as a young man, “Growing up without a father figure, I basically had to learn a lot about life on my own,” he says. “There were times where we lacked the financial support we needed, and I had to help out my mom as much as possible.”

Jalen’s Non-Profit

Samaritan Community Center, a local nonprofit organization in Rogers and Springdale, serves the hurting and hungry of Northwest Arkansas with wraparound services. During 2021, the SCC provided 85,000 persons with emergency food assistance, served 90,000 meals, and distributed 200,000 snack packs to at-risk children through their nutritional programs. Their Samaritan Care program assisted over 1,200 families with resource referrals, rent/utility assistance, and case management. Their charitable dental clinic provided over $500,000 in free dental care to uninsured, low-income adults. They operate two thrift stores in Rogers and Springdale which provide 33% of the operational support for the organization.
