Birthday: 9/23/1989

Brandon Jennings was born on September 23, 1989 in Compton, CA. Jennings started playing basketball at Gardena’s Rowley Park when he was five years old. When he was eight, his father committed suicide, leaving his mother to take care of Brandon and his younger brother. It was hard for the Jennings family to stay in one place and they ended up going from home to home throughout Los Angeles, sometimes even all 3 of them staying in a one-bedroom apartment.

In the fourth grade, Jennings was a ball boy at Dominguez, helping to pass to the varsity team and grabbing rebounds. In middle school, Jennings played for the P. Miller All-Stars AAU squad and got to know Master P and Lil’ Romeo. When he was finally a freshman at Dominguez, Brandon averaged 9 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals per game as a freshmen playing with three D-1 upperclassmen that finished 26-6 and made it to the finals of the Southern California bracket in the state tournament. Dominguez is the same school that produced Dennis Johnson, Tyson Chandler, and Tayshaun Prince.

As a sophomore, Brandon averaged 19 points per game as Dominguez reached the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division IIAA tournament. During the summer, in his first ever matchup against highly touted high school phenom, OJ Mayo, Jennings held his own, scoring 24 points and dishing out 10 dimes, while guarding Mayo most of the time. Mayo finished with 28 points but shot 8-for-25 from the field.

In September, Jennings played at the famous Rucker Park at The Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic, winning co-mvp and finishing with 12 points and 15 assists. His smooth point guard skills and sweet handle earned him love from the crowd’s toughest critics and earned him the nickname “Doobie Doo”.

Before his junior year, Brandon Jennings transferred to powerhouse Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia. In November, 2006, Jennings verbally committed to attending USC after graduating high school after considering Connecticut, Arizona, Texas, Syracuse, Kansas and UCLA. He would later de-commit and instead choose Arizona.

Instead of going to Arizona, Jennings signed with Lottomatica Roma of the Italian Lega A., becoming the first player to play overseas instead of a college basketball team since the NBA’s age restriction rule was implemented. Although Jennings didn’t get a lot of playing time, he was selected tenth overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2009 NBA Draft, becoming the first player who skipped college to play professional basketball in Europe to be drafted by an NBA team.

In his rookie year, Jennings scored 55 points in a game against the Warriors, becoming the youngest player to ever score 55 or more points. Jennings started all 82 games in his rookie year, finishing with an average of 15.5 points and 5.7 assists per game. In his 2nd season, Jennings averaged 16.2 points and 4.8 assists.

  2. Ive seen you play on tv against prep charter and i think you the best point gaurd period. Your my favorite player of the ’08 class. I liked that one sick pass were you did a fake behind the back and finished with a layup. And i wish you could go to Ohio State too.

  5. Doobie doo(lol), you are my favorite high school player and Point guard. I have been watching you since you were playing with the p miller all-stars. you did your thing!

    Comment by LaMorris Allen — March 29, 2007 @ 7:25 am

  6. Why you not going to USC? You should keep your word. You would look good in the USC uniform.

    Comment by rob — April 16, 2007 @ 2:30 am

  7. Brandon Jennings would be crazy not to go to the best University in the country. Connecticut. They have the tradition, the coach and they are only getting better…

    Comment by Jack Adams — April 17, 2007 @ 8:39 pm

  8. I think Coach Calhoun at Uconn has the most players playing in the league. They are at the age now where by next year they will be playing for the National Championship. Plus I think you and Jerome Dyson will be the best backcourt in the country next year. GO TO UCONN. Coach has developed the most talent in the NBA and its a great school and a great campus. All the best, Brandon.

    Comment by cheryl dyson — April 18, 2007 @ 7:37 am

  9. SWEET, heard you are interested in KU. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME IF INDEED YOU CHOOSE Kansas. Kansas is a great school man! Best fans in the world pack Allen Field House to the rafters every game, even exhibitions and late nite. Coach Self is building a dynasty. Best of luck Brandon.

    Comment by Matt — April 23, 2007 @ 7:41 pm

  10. THE Kansas University is where it be man.

    Comment by Michael K. — April 23, 2007 @ 8:30 pm

  11. Kansas is where its at. Bill Selfs a great coach, best atmosphere for a college basketball game anywhere… its a special place for special players. 4 elite eights in the past 6 years, 2 final fours (an overtime from being three), tons of NBA draft picks… fans treat players like gods. KU is the ultimate place to play college basketball. KU likes an up tempo game.

    Comment by Quinton — April 24, 2007 @ 8:44 am

  12. UCONN BABBBYYYYY!!!! I’m tellin you in 2 years from now Uconn will win a National Championship. Also, noone gets their players better prepared for the NBA than Calhoun. Uconn has the most players in the NBA.

    Comment by Palmer — April 24, 2007 @ 12:31 pm

  13. anybody can say and whisper anything in to your ear, but just ask your Coach and his son, Marcus , the school with the best Spring Weekend is UCONN and oh yeah. One of two teams to win 2 championships in the last ten years. College life is not only about winning and going to the NBA but its about being a kid and learning before you go to the league. You cannot predict who will 6 tough games in a row in March but you can and you have visited Marcus and seen its probably the best campus in the country.

    Comment by David Francis — April 25, 2007 @ 2:12 am

  14. Most definately need to check out Kansas! Lawrence loves its basketball like no other college town in the USA! KU is sending 2 players to the league this year in Rush and Wright. Some of its most recent members are also doing very well, such as Hinrich, Pierce, Collison, Gooden… hopefully Wright and Rush will fall in this select group of KU NBA stars.

    Comment by Corbin Almquist — April 29, 2007 @ 7:15 pm

  15. Keep it up bro….dis Pierre u da man stay humble…COMPTON

    Comment by P.Hay23 — May 1, 2007 @ 7:59 am

  16. Rock Chalk Jayhawk. If you want to play for a ‘ship and be a lottery pick, then you’d pick KU. Just ask Julian Wright, or Brandon Rush, or Darrell Arthur, or Sherron Collins, or Mario Chalmers, or Cole Aldrich…or Brandon Jennings? Kansas owns!

    Comment by Rock Chalk — May 1, 2007 @ 10:14 pm

  17. it seems like an easy decision. If you want a quick National Championship and go to the NBA then the choice is easy. Brandon, the decision is yours but honestly do not get stuck in the Pac 10… take a leap of faith.. you can win a National Championship and go to the NBA in the same year and that is with Uconn. I am being objective. Its like playing for a pro team already here in Ct… It would be fun to see you and Jerome , Donnell and Dougie Wiggins rotating. You will probably start freshman year but in utopia you should stay at least two years as a point gaurd anyhow…remember AI…he stayed two….most Uconn guys stay three because they learn so much…when Ray Allen took it to Iverson in the Big East Tourney and beat Georgetown it went down as one of the greatest moments in Madison Square Garden History.. Go to will not regret it..all the best whatever decision you make.. Hasheem is back..we may win it all next year… people think we have a lot of growing to do…but look out…Coach has us ready and we are the team to beat again.

    Comment by Luther Jenson — May 6, 2007 @ 3:05 am

  18. Brandon, is the bessssst point guard in high school basketball that i have ever seem. He is a team player first and formost. Unlike Jerry Meyers :( comment about him being a ball hog, which by the way jerry, is hog wash.

    Ask his current and former teammate Kevin Love, Chase Budinger, Nolan Smith, Alex Legion.. Hell ask Steve Smith, his coach. Brandon keep up the good work, keep a level head and congratulationson your academic achievement in english, we love you in Compton and Tennesse :)………..

  20. I am extremely excited that you have chosen AZ! I have been a fan of the Cats for my entire life and you commiting has given life back into the AZ program. I am looking forward to seein ya speed up & down the court along with Bayless, Budinger & McClellan. Lets do dis and win a championship for one of the greatest coaches of all time and one of the greatest schools in America! I am extremely anxious to see you step on the court in AZ fashion!

    Comment by Adam — May 23, 2007 @ 4:29 am

  21. You were meant to be an Arizona Wildcat. Welcome to the family and the tradition man.

    Comment by Jimbo — May 23, 2007 @ 3:34 pm

  22. All you anti-Arizona haters need to hush up and stop making rediculous comments like this here: “I think Coach Calhoun at Uconn has the most players playing in the league.(no they Don’t) They are at the age now where by next year they will be playing for the National Championship.(no they wont) Plus I think you and Jerome Dyson will be the best backcourt in the country next year.(not even, Jennings and Bayless) GO TO UCONN.(to smack all these Huskie fans in their mouth) Coach has developed the most talent in the NBA(no he hasn’t) and its a great school and a great campus.” Yeah right! are you serious? UCONN is the worst choice anyone can ever make. You have a better chance developing your game with the Oregon State Beavers than with UCONN. Who wnats to see the women at UCONN when its cold? I think Cheryl does. ARIZONA has better looking girls, a better coach, better weather, better food, better tradition, and BETTER POINT GUARDS (i.e. Gilbert Arenas, Jasaon Terry, Mike Bibby, Damon & Salim, and the list goes on Huskies. You made the right chice Ol boy, Best of Luck B.

    Comment by Mario — May 25, 2007 @ 3:53 pm

  23. horrible choice. shoulda stuck with USC. Tim Floyd is THE COACH to be with right now. just look what he was able to do with an under rated Ryan Francis (bless his heart) before his death at point guard.

    even if not USC, you coulda at least chosen UCONN. Olsen is getting old and senile. but if what you want is to play street ball and do your “thang” (according to rivals) than feel free to go to UA where your skill will be wasted and you will end up flopping just like mustafa shakur (also another former #1 hs pg)

  25. Hey Brandon,
    Glad to have you as a Wildcat! We all look forward to having you in Tucson. The excitement and buzz is back in the air here, and we have your commitment to thank for that. Now if we can just wait until you get here…..Bring Ed Davis or maybe, Greg Monroe with ya……We’ll need your help in enticing one of those guys. Have a great Summer and stay safe dude! Bear Down!

  32. Brandon Jennings,
    You are my idol as, much as Kenny Anderson is yours. I too have a family that has struggled in the past but, is just barely getting by thanks to GOD. I study your game and add some of your greater aspects to my game, and i also try to imagine myself sticking and finding ways to stop you, because if i ever play in the NBA i want to shut you down, But Before you i want to play your 11-year-old brother( I am 11 also)first then after him i want to play you.

Sean Elliot? Steve Kerr? Yeah thats right. U of A is a breeding machine. Lute is the man. Brandon Jennings will win us a national championship! Uconn sucks. USC sucks. Kansas is a bunch of girls.

  56. I’m in VA, a little east coast bias and while Uconn would have been lucky, I think Zona was the right choice for you. Look at the PGs that program has produced; stoudamire, terry, bibby, arenas, jennings. It’s a better program for producing NBA players. I also hear the girls are simply rediculous out there.

    Comment by Daniel — February 6, 2008 @ 2:40 pm

  57. I finally got to see u play and WOW ur good.I just wanted to congratulate u on ur choice with Arizonia,I think you’ll fit in well there.I read some of ur bio and just wanted to say I’m sorry for ur loss with ur DAD,I loss my father too at a young age(7)which left my mom to take care of four kids so I know how it feels to grow up without a parent.I’m moving to Arizonia too but I’m going to be at ASU on a full scholarship to play for the women’s basketball team so good luck wildcat and I hope to see u in the near future.

  80. Who are the morons who think Uconn has the most NBA guys, i know you guys love your Basketball but do not seak unless you have your facts straight, AZ has the most look it up, Branden does not want to go to class so he has chosen Europe where the players will intentialy injure him and the he will never make it to the NBA, I know the NCAA has there head up there ass but Europe is the lazy selfish wrong idea, he could have played for the greatest point guard coach in college history. Bad choice Brandon!!!! you have listened to selfish people who have only there interests in mind not yours, good luck hope things worko ut for you and choose an agent who did not advise you on this decsision

  85. (Today is officially the end of the NCAA’s “slave trade”!)

    free at last, free at last

    can a brotha get uh amen??

    nuh but seriosly, get that money Jennings. dont hate couse he’s smart, he found a way to not get pimped like my man robstylz said. the European league is harder then NCAA with out a doubt so not only does he challenge himself more, hes getting money/fans while hes doing it. if it where a white boy doing this it would not be a big deal and everyone knows it. hes the Rosa Parks of basketball,

  86. Have fun in Europe, the food in Europe should be fun. I hope that you get paid $300,000 to $500,000 USA money for that one year. When you come back to the US, you might be number 4 in the NBA draft, if not, maybe number one.

  87. nice move to go to europe … let the kids come to us (europeans) and play for real bucks, while they aren´t old “enough” being pro in the staates

    Comment by NerdSuperfly — July 20, 2008 @ 1:28 am

  88. Here some FREE advice for you,

    Money over education hasn’t helped anyone in this world, you’ve just shown that your greedy early on, very greedy. The arrogance of your decision will come back to haunt you.

    To compare you with Josh Childress is ridiculous, you have no experience and your a point guard, the most replaceable part of a team

    Now you have left yourself open to injury, having seen how hard they play in Europe I would make sure that you build up your little body cause your going to get shoved, poked, tripped, pushed, elbowed and down right abused. I would make sure you don’t go with the ghetto talk cause people there don’t care that your American, they will want to break a kid like you. You did the wrong thing instead of staying in America and getting an education, you tried to play with the bigs boys.

    One last thing, remember that people remember arrogance, in Europe they foul hard when people show too much arrogance.

    My example is proven, you have a fan website, what a joke.

    Comment by B_Dizz — July 26, 2008 @ 12:52 pm

  92. Good luck, Brandon! Met you at Rucker’s Park and your decision is a wise one, I am living in Europe (Spain) and it’s a great experience. I just got accepted to Oak Hill and Coach Smith will get the best out of me like he did with you! Carrying on the tradition. Like I said in my e-mail, my parents are in Spain and if you need anything, give them a “holla” and ENJOY YOUR HOOP DREAMS IN ROME! Just remember, you play “ball” and don’t let “ball” play YOU, my man!

  93. And, memo to the “haters” out there (especially comment #88): Education is important in anyone’s life but there’s no reason why Brandon cannot get his education later in his life… it’s HIS CHOICE, not ours! And, the “haters” out there need to ask a question: How come every sport in the USA have participants who do not go to college and they are not dumped on yet basketball and football players (the two sports in which blacks are the majority) have rules in place that obligates the players to go to college? Going to college is a “choice” not an obligation. I am not critizing anyone for going to college or not going to college but how can an 17 or 18 year old kid join the military and do not attend college and it’s no big deal yet if an 17 or 18 year old kid wants to play basketball, he’s dissed?!

    Brandon, my man, it’s your life… hope and pray that all goes well for you. Follow your dreams, you have a talent to play ball and the only advice I have for you is for you to take advantage of your talent in basketball to better yourself and your love ones instead of letting basketball take advantage of you.

    Enjoy life and your time in Rome! The league is no joke but living in Europe is cool, very cool! You will enjoy it!

    Peace, my fellow Oak Hill Alumni!

    P.S. – All those haters out there, don’t hate because you don’t have mad game like my man “Mr. Entertainment”! Haters, you gotta luv ‘em!

    Comment by Marco Porcher Jimenez — August 19, 2008 @ 4:33 pm

  94. Brandon your skill on the basketball court is without question. However, you have made a serious error in judgement in bypassing the opportunity of a college education. Therein lies the key to both attaining and maintaining the wealth you will accumulate during your playing days. Guys like Grant Hill and Tim Duncan are not just fantastic athletes but they are academically well prepared for the world called the NBA. Unforatuntely, you have received some extremely poor advise. The money was always going to be there for you but the knowledge and understanding of finance is not something that can be learned during a hectic NBA basketball career. Take it from me Brandon. I am the son of a very prominent entertainer and multi-millionaire, you need to find a way to get an education so that you can fend off the predators that will be at your door from day one. You are no match for them as you sign contract after contract with agents, managers, accountants and the like that do not have your best interest at heart.

    Do you know what an escalator is? Do you understand what a negative covenant is? Do you know what a key man clause is? Can you explain what a sunset clause is?

    Brandon, I could go on and on but I think you get the point. On the court I have no doubt you can survive. Off the court you are no match for the well educated in BUSINESS. Remember, basketball is entertainment and it’s BUSINESS first and then basketball.

    Find a way to get that education so you can protect yourself dude.

    Wishing you well.

  100. I am just reading these comments and all I have to say is STAY CLOSE to FAMILY and keep the VULTURES away. Like One of the Guys said before BASKETBALL IS A BUSINESS. And No matter what YOU are EXPENDABLE, They will use YOU and throw you away. Secondly get an education, You made your decision for EUROPE and that’s good. BEEF UP and and Take BUSINESS CLASSES because you are going to need them to manage the empire. This Guy had great advise”Comment by honestly — September 9, 2008 @ 7:18 pm” and so did some of the others but IT YOUR LIFE AND TALENT!!! LIVE IT WISELY

  104. Listen 2 your coach overseas and let him help you develop. You are very talented and can be better than kobe if you work hard and are willing to learn more aspects of the professional (NBA) game. You really can be an amazing player if allow yourself to be taught more and apply it to your game.

    Comment by Elmer Ross — November 26, 2008 @ 4:22 pm

  105. Hey Brandon, man dude at first I didnt understand why you were going to Europe. When I first heard it I was like what the heck is he doing? But a few days ago on ESPN I read this article. And it seemed to put something straight in my mind. You didnt go to the European League to make money or to become rich and famous over there. You went to Europe to become a better player which is what Virtus Roma is gonna do. After I read you got kicked out of practice I almost stopped reading. But I kept going and it said that you shaped up and now you are leading this European team which is awfully good in my book. And for everyone who is hatin on you for not going to the College ranks, who cares? You were gonna get babied not only by the opposing players, but the coaches and the referees. Your gonna be great man. The European League will definitely make you the best point in the world.

    As for you Scout from Europe, read this article, it may bring some sense to your mind:

  114. Hi Brandon,

    My son is 15 yrs old and will play JV this 2009-2010 school year. Kai is a little guy like you and you are his biggest idol. Kai watches all of your videos.

    I will continue to work on my son’s skills because I hope someday he will be able to play professional basketball – this is his dream. He plays basketball all year and I plan on have Bob Nance help train Kai to better basketball skills.

    Brandon you are a great player and keep up the good work. I will be watching you for the 2009-2010 season.

  116. Should’ve gone to Arizona. They got to the 16 without you and Bayless. Imagine if you both were there last year? I’m sure he would have stayed one more if you’d honored your “commitment.” Anyhow, enough bitching, good luck with that shitty Buck team. Hopefully your game translates to the NBA well and then you can come back to the city and play with the WORLD CHAMPION ‘Show in a few years. Just don’t act like an asshole like Smush Parker and show Kobe some respect…Lol… Just messing. Best of luck to you man. The time is right for you to replace the aging Great AI.

  118. Mr. Jennings…..WOW is all I can say…I just discovered who he was 3 days ago, and since I have read any article & story I could about him. He is truly a phenomenal man. Being 20 (like myself) in the League, played AAU, overseas and probably in other places too, carrying himself the way he does is the true definition of Blessed. After I leave college (next couple of months) I plan to meet him and find out the essence behind this “baller” cause from what I read, seen and know….this could be bigger than Kobe!

  129. I just met Brandon Jennings and I am without a doubt impressed by his demeanor, and his attitude. While I do not know him, I have watched his rookie season very carefully, and this guy is already ready for the highest level in the world. I have known about his talent for years, and years, but now I have watched him play with my own eyes. They lost by 20 points, but the man is in constant attack mode, and is always hustling. A throwback type player in the eyes of some, because he appears to be trying hard all of the time, and not taking plays off. I wish him good luck always.

  157. If anyone saw the game against the Celtics yesterday (3/6/11) Jennings should have had the ball in the final two minutes of the game. I do give credit to Delfino for hitting the three late in the game, but when he threw up that ugly shot from way behind the arc. If jennings had the ball Milwaukee would’ve won. Jennings needs the ball and teams need to realize that he’s a scorer.
