It is looking more and more like things are going the way that Jamari Traylor hoped they would.
After a breakout season at Chicago's Julian High School and a strong summer effort with Mean Streets, the 6-foot-7 power forward decided to attend IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
The idea for Traylor was to get stronger, work on his skill and hopefully upgrade his recruiting profile. So far so good as Traylor reports that he recently got some new offers.
"I've got some news," Traylor texted Rivals.com. "I just got offered by Kansas, Indiana and St. John's."
A rugged interior player with explosive athleticism, Traylor is well known for his hard work on the glass and ability to run the floor. During his season at IMG, the three-star prospect has shown an improved ability to face-up defenders and utilize his quickness advantage to attack the rim off the dribble from 15 feet. He's also an improved scorer from between eight and 12 feet.
In addition to his most recent interest, Traylor has had contact from the likes of Minnesota, Virginia Tech, Missouri, VCU and others. He's yet to set any official visits but should be doing so in the near future.
