It's a question RivalsHoops.com hears over and over regarding the process of Jamar Nutter a strong 6-2, 191 pound combo/shooting guard from Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, N.J.
The question? Is Jamar improving on the perimeter with his jumper? Well, if Nutter answers this question successfully he will likely have many high majors offer him a scholarship.
Nutter had a solid tournament at the Southern Invitational this past weekend on the campus of Virginia. He is an obvious key on how the Playaz do this spring and summer.
Nutter seemed very active when rivalshoops.com watched him in action this past weekend. He went to the basket well and knocked down a couple of jumpers, including a three. Nutter does seem willing to work hard on this part of the game so there isn't any reason to believe he won't make progress in the perimeter section of his offense.
Jamar is also a physical defender and strong slasher. Though Nutter is not a great three point shooter at this stage he has shown some good improvement since his junior high school year ended. He does play more on the wing than at the point for Seton Hall Prep. But he is still a top target for many programs in the Class of 2003.
Nutter told Rivalshoops.com that his 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 Playaz program. His next stop will be the Bob Gibbons tournament in North Carolina on Memorial Day Weekend.
