Jamal Bey

Finally, the team will welcome Jamal Bey. Bey is a solid 6-foot-6 wing, whose versatility will let him slide down to shooting guard or up to small forward. And he brings quite a bit to the baskeball court. If there is one basketball prospect who deserves the “our kinda guy” title, Bey is the one.  He was recently named Gatorade Player of the Year.

He joins the ranks of notable NBA stars like Ben Simmons, Karl Anthony Towns, Jayson Tatum Jr. The distinction is highly coveted in basketball circles. And the judges got it right, Bey earned it. He is a workhorse, a young man who keeps pushing at all dimensions in his game to improve at everything.

Hopkins and Bey are positively charged

If Coach Hopkins is a coach with inexhaustible energy, then Jamal Bey is his NCAA player equivalent.

The Washington Huskies need perimeter shooters. What they get in Jamal Bey is perimeter shooting, mid range shooting, great handles on the ball, and a whole lot more.
