Washington Basketball recruiting efforts gaining momentum with small forward Jamal Bey
On the morning after the 2017 NBA Draft, college basketball programs around the nation are once more called to restock the shelves. After all, the Washington Basketball team is no exception to this annual migration to the far reaches of the nation. Coaches must recruit new players wherever basketball prospects train, live, or learn.
As a matter of fact, it’s that need to find new talent which has brought UW Basketball coaches to Las Vegas, Nevada. Or rather, Jamal Bey to the University of Washington campus at Seattle Washington. Bey held an unofficial visit with the school on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
Jamal Bey is a 6-foot-6 185 pound shooting guard/small forward who is getting plenty of basketball attention recently. Drawing interest from eight schools and sorting through six scholarship offers already, Bey has a very significant decision to make in the future. But for today, it’s a matter of visiting and working out.
Meet Jamal Crawford
Time at the gym is a magical time for a basketball player. It is a time for actions and not words. On the basketball court, a young athlete can glide to the basket as gracefully as an ice skater glides across the ice.
And you never know who you may run into at the gym.
Every young man goes through a similar process at each college. But it’s not common to run into an NBA player.
Memories are made. And the decision begins to swing in favor of a school with the best fit. It’s all part of the process. NBA players pay back to the schools by helping young men find their way through.
Someday, Jamal Bey may be the NBA player visiting the Washington gym and meeting with young men. It could happen someday, if he commits to the Washington Basketball program..
