HIGH SCHOOL
Jorgensen enjoyed a standout senior season at Don Bosco Preparatory High School in Ramsey, N.J., leading the Ironmen to a 24-5 record and the finals of both the Bergen County Jamboree and North Jersey, Non-Public A state tournament, the latter run highlighted by a game-winning shot to send his team into the Non-Public A title game.

He averaged 17.8 points and eclipsed the 1,000 career points plateau while adding 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.

Among his many honors received, Jorgensen was named the North Jersey Player of the Year and Second Team All-State by the Newark Star-Ledger as well as to the Bergen County All-Jamboree Team. He was also a Second Team All-Metro pick by MSG Varsity, the MVP of the NJSCA Senior North-South All-Star Game, and a First Team All-Big North United Division selection after leading the Ironmen to the divisional crown. Jorgensen was selected to participate in the prestigious Jordan Brand Classic Regional All-Star Game at Barclays Center in April 2014.

Nicknamed the 'Prince Harry of Harlem' for his performance during the Tri-State Classic's High School Showcase in summer 2013, the 6-foot-2 guard averaged 17.6 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals for Don Bosco Prep as a junior in 2012-13, earning Third Team All-Bergen County honors from the Newark Star-Ledger and All-Suburban honors from the Ridgewood News. He posted 10 games of 20-or-more points for the Ironmen in 2012-13, including a season high of 31.

Jorgensen shined during summer 2013, helping his New Heights NYC AAU team to a title at the adidas Super 64 championship in Las Vegas and earning MVP honors of the Books and Ball Classic in New York in October.
