Haverford (PA) combo guard Jameel Brown’s season was cut short due to a wrist injury but that hasn’t stopped coaches from checking in.
Penn, Iona, St. Peter’s and Temple have all offered with Purdue and George Washington showing interest. Indiana also reached out to his high school basketball coach earlier this year.
“They like my jump shot…especially my three point shot,” Brown said of what coaches like the most about his game, “The way I rebound at the guard position, I have a good IQ and my off ball defense.”
Before his injury, Brown played in four games and two scrimmages. According to his coach, he was averaging 17.5 points and nine rebounds per game at that point.
The year prior as a freshman, Brown, helped Haverford to a perfect 28-0 record, and also, a PAISAA and Inter Ac League championship.
This led to another invite USA Basketball invite where he participated in the 2019 USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team July and October minicamp.
“It was a great experience. I was very honored and blessed to be there,” Brown explained. “It was always a dream of mine to go to a USA Basketball camp. Those camps helped me a ton.”
“I learned that I have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and communication is key.”
It shouldn’t be out of sight, out of mind for Brown. After injury, he’ll still be one of the better shooters in his class, and will also be one of the highly recruited guards out of Pennsylvania.
