Jared Gaither, a massive 6-foot-8, 280-pound power forward/center from Eleanor Roosevelt H.S. in Greenbelt, Md., turned in some fine performances this spring for the D.C. Assault program at the Charlie Weber DC Capitol Invitational.
Gaither, who has a wide frame and good hands, finishes well in the paint. He told RivalsHoops.com that he is hearing from Charlotte, George Washington, Maryland, St. Joseph's, Florida State and George Mason.
Gaither has already taken unofficial visits to Charlotte, Maryland and St. Joseph's, but said that he doesn't yet have any scholarship offers. That's likely to change soon if he plays as well as he did at the Weber Tournament last weekend.
Gaither expects to attend the adidas ABCD Camp in July and will tour the spring and summer circuit with Curtis Malone's D.C. Assault program. RivalsHoops.com will keep you posted on his play and development as the summer evaluation period approaches, so stay tuned.
