Jair Currie’s had a strong showing at the National Prep School Invitational in front of numerous college coaches. The class of 2020 shooting guard from St. Thomas More (CT) has started to receive high major interest and certain mid-major schools are making him a priority. On the floor, Currie looks to make an impact in more ways than just scoring.
“When I’m playing well I am scoring and getting guys on the floor involved,” said Currie. “Everyone around us starts to make shots and we play well defensively.”
He believes improving on parts of his skill set will bring his game to another level.
“I’m trying to add a consistent jump shot and working on my handle so I can help out our point guard when he is getting pressured,” he said.
Currie has received two offers thus far and interest from top schools is starting to pour in.
“Bryant and UMass have offered so far,” he said. “I’ve talked to Butler, Cincinnati and a lot of Atlantic 10 schools.”
He has gone on an unofficial visit to UMass where he enjoyed their family-like environment.
“They tell me their team is like a family and that really means a lot to me,” Currie said. “A family environment means a lot to me and they take time in bettering their players on and off the floor.”
Currie is a prospect colleges should target as he finishes this high school season and heads into the AAU season with the City Rocks.
Bol Akot, a class of 2020 PG from the DC Blue Devils (NH), has picked up an offer from St. Peter’s.
Class of 2020 guard Jabri Abdur-Rahim will announce his college decision tomorrow. He tells me he is down to Michigan & Virginia.
