The spring portion of this year’s grassroots season is nearing an end and we have had a few prospects boost their stock more than others. Jamie Kaiser Jr. has certainly been one of those prospects.
The 6-foot-6 shooting guard has opened the eyes of multiple scouts, media, and college coaches over the last couple of months running with New World (DC) in the Adidas 3SSB.
He has earned a plethora of offers from high major programs such as Wisconsin, Maryland, Boston College, Indiana, Virginia, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Utah State, Rhode Island, Harvard, Wake Forest, and much more with schools like Baylor, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, and others showing interest.
I asked him how has his recruitment been so far since the end of his junior season? “It’s really been exciting and fulfilling to know my hard work is paying off. I knew I was good enough to be where am at, I just needed the stage to prove it. I’d like to attest that to my faith in God, knowing that he has a plan for me regardless of what it is. I was going to continue to work hard no matter what offers if any that I would receive.” He replied.
He continued to tell me Wisconsin, George Mason, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Harvard, Boston College, Maryland, and Rhode Island have been in contact with him the most. He has already taken his official visits to Wisconsin and Harvard and tells me he plans on taking visits to George Mason and Virginia sometime in June.
Kaiser Jr. is a strong two-guard with an already college ready frame and body. He is an elite perimeter threat, plays with such a high motor, one of the best on-ball defenders in his class, and scores in a variety of ways outside of his three-point shooting.
He also told me he will like to improve on his ball handling the most during the off-season and going into his senior year when asked what does he think he can improve on as he grows as a player.
I asked him how does it feel putting the nation on notice over the last few months? “I’d just like to give all the glory to God because I had faith in him and myself when a lot of people didn’t and just stayed persistent in my work. I have great parents to help keep me grounded so it’s more humbling than anything.” Jamie told me.
