During his high school days at the famous Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, Brandon Jennings was one of the most highly-touted prospects. In his senior year he averaged over 32 points per game, along with over 7 assists per outing as well. It resulted in Jennings receiving a number of awards, including Naismith Prep Player of the Year. It was after his impressive time at Oak Hill that Jennings professional career began in Europe, where he began his partnership with Under Armour Basketball.
Jennings has made it habit to not forget where he came from, as earlier this year he revamped the Compton Double Rock Learning center and basketball courts in the neighborhood he grew up in. To continue on with that, and pay tribute to another of Brandon’s stepping stones, Jennings former school Oak Hill Academy, Under Armour has created a white, red and gold colorway of Brandon’s first signature model, the UA Micro G Black Ice. The low-cut version of the Micro G Black Ice features patent red around the toebox and a white leather upper. Aside from the Oak Hill matching colors, underneath the transparent shattered ice outsole resides the team’s Warriors labeling, also done in the red and gold. Brandon’s signature is stitched into the underside of the tongue label as the finishing touches.
