Those who knew of his game in his hometown of Chicago knew that Jamari Traylor was a big time athlete who played with a chip on his shoulder. But, Traylor was lacking a bit for exposure and decided that he needed a change for his senior year.
Rather than finish out his high school days at Chicago (Ill.) Julian, the 6-foot-6 power forward packed up his stuff and headed for Bradenton (Fla.) IMG for his senior season.
So far, it looks to have been a success as several schools have taken interest in the athletic senior.
"Things are going pretty well," Traylor told Rivals.com. "I've got Virginia Tech, Virginia, VCU, Bradley, Minnesota and St. John's on me."
According to Traylor, new programs are inquiring almost every week and he feels that he has a scholarship offer on the table from the schools he listed.
It wouldn't be a surprise to see even more schools get involved with Traylor. He's got great length, plays with a huge chip on his shoulder, rebounds, dunks everything, defends with physicality and runs the floor like a wing.
So far, Traylor doesn't have any favorites and says he's in no rush to make a decision.
"I don't have any favorites or anything like that," said Traylor. "I will take visits in the Spring and then decide."
