Prospect Update: Kareem Jamar

This is the second of two updates on a couple of players who committed Montana State and Montana this past December. Recently SportSection.com created a list of who they view is the top 50 high school players in the state of California. Among the players listed were Montana State commit Jordan Salley and Montana commit Kareem Jamar.

The thing thought to remember both of these guys committed after the fall signing period so they are locked into playing for either program by anything other than the word of player and the school coaches.

Here is what SportSection.com had to say about Kareem Jamar.

34. Kareem Jamar, 6-5, 3/2, Westchester HS (Los Angeles)

Jamar is arguably the best player on the best team in California. His basketball IQ is very high. Scouts love his ability to absolutely shut down opponents on the perimeter. He is also a skilled rebounder and scorer. Jamar committed to Montana.

ESPN recently updated his player ranking to 91

90-100: Immediate Impact Prospect

Player demonstrates rare abilities and has the potential to start as a freshman for a national, top-25 program.

In addition to Jamar, teammates Dwayne Polee (6’7 2010 WF) and Jordin Mayes, (6-2, 2010 combo guard) also are listed in the top 20.

Kareem is I believe is averaging 16 points and 4 rebounds a game while Westchester is ranked as the top prep basketball team in California and #9 in the nation. Westchester has been traveling the country this season participating and winning tournaments in Portland, Las Vegas, and Springfield, Massachusetts. This past week end Westchester won the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. And Kareem was named tourney MVP.

Jamar is quickly cruising up the scouting ranking and is one of the fastest risers in California. He is getting a lot of attention from folks who brushed him off in the fall.

    Sounds like he can be an instant starter with the Griz. We lose 3 starters next year (all who are guards/wings.) McGillis has been forced to play the 4 but he is a wing.
