LSU guard Hailey Van Lith, 22, is rumored to still be dating Orlando Magic star Jalen Suggs, also 22. But is it true? When the couple first began dating in 2021, Suggs played for the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
The Magic guard revealed their relationship via an X post at the time. Considering the X and Instagram posts have since been deleted, a number of fans are speculating that they’re no longer together.
In March 2021, Van Lith (696K followers, $965K) and Suggs (325K followers, $495K) were among the top five most-followed athletes with top NIL earning power on Elite Eight teams, per Front Office Sports.
Suggs was also a McDonald’s All-American in high school in 2020 and a consensus second-team All-American as a Gonzaga freshman in 2021. Orlando selected him fifth overall in the 2021 NBA Draft.

However, the Washington native surprised fans in April when she announced her transfer to LSU, following the Tigers’ national championship win over Iowa in Dallas, Texas.
In August, she reported to the LSU campus. During the early stages of the offseason, Hailey Van Lith was the top prospect of The Athletic’s transfer portal tracker. She has two seasons left of collegiate eligibility.
