Jamar Nutter, a strong 6-2, 191 pound combo/shooting guard from Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, N.J., poured in 20 points last night in the Pirates' 65-50 playoff loss to Bergen Catholic H.S.
A physical defender and strong slasher, Nutter is not a great three point shooter at this stage, and plays more on the wing than at the point for Seton Hall Prep. But he is still a coveted target for many programs in the Class of 2003.
Nutter told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that his early list includes Maryland, Temple, Pittsburgh, St. John's, Seton Hall, Syracuse and Villanova.
This season, he averaged roughly 15 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals per game for the Pirates.
Nutter said he plans on attending the adidas ABCD Camp in July, and will tour the spring and summer basketball circuits again this year with Jimmy Salmon's T5T Playaz program.
IR will keep you abreast of Nutter's play in the coming months, as well as his recruitment, so stay tuned.
