He is a graduate from his neighbourhood school Louise Arbour Secondary School where he was dubbed "the greatest athlete to ever play at LASS".[4][5] As reported by Quinton Martinez the Caller-Times/USA Today, Sangha is also the first transfer commitment for new Texas A&M Corpus Christi head coach Steve Lutz.[6]

He is one of the first few Sikh-Canadians to be able to play Division 1 Basketball in America.[7][8][5]

Early life[edit]

Born in Surrey, British Columbia[9], Sangha moved to Scarborough at a young age before moving to Brampton.[10] He has lived almost his entire life in the City of Brampton, a suburb very close to the City of Toronto.[2][11] He is the son of Sukhbir Sangha, a truck driver and Kamaljit Sangha who is a factory worker. Originally from Jalandhar, Punjab, India, his parents immigrated to Surrey, British Columbia to seek a better life for their children.[12] He also has an older brother, Sukhman who is a Senior Advisor[13] to Ontario Minister Prabmeet Sarkaria[14] (Sarkaria is the first turban wearing Sikh minister in Ontario history[15]). In an interview with CityNews Vancouver, Sukhman has been described as Jasman's role model growing up.[16] Sangha's parents raised their children to be hard working and to take advantage of the North American education system to have better lives than they did.[9] As a teenager in Punjab, his mother ran track and field while his father played kabaddi.

High school career[edit]

Sangha attended Louise Arbour Secondary School in Brampton.[5] He was named All Star, All Conference Player, Defensive Player of the Year, and MVP during his years at LA.[17][18] In 2014, Jasman was an instrumental part of the undefeated Louise Arbour team that defeated the Sandalwood Heights Sabres in the finals by 42-24.[19]

While initially receiving interest from many teams, Sangha decided to attend Pensacola State College for his first year of Junior College.[10][5]

College career[edit]

During the 2019-2020 season, Jasman mostly played power forward and center, he would occasionally play small forward. After the COVID-19 shortened season, Jasman transferred to Garden City Community College significantly expanding his role on the court. In his first and only year at Garden City, Jasman averaged 13.4 points and 6.2 rebounds a game despite only averaging 25 minutes a game. He shot 53% from the field overall and 46% from three-point range displaying his great efficiency as a shooter and effectiveness on the block.[20][11]

In April 2021, Sangha declared his commitment to transfer to Texas A&M Corpus Christi and to start his D1 Basketball career under former Purdue Assistant and now TAMCC head coach Steve Lutz.[1][6][21]
