Top-100 class of 2021 wing Jahmai Mashack is down to six NCAA Basketball options. Which of them will ultimately land his signature?
When it comes to some of the top NCAA Basketball prospects out west, class of 2021 shooting guard/wing Jahmai Mashack has made a name for himself in the past month. After an injury-riddled summer, the 6’5 guard had a strong junior season at Etiwanda High School to solidify his standing as a top-100 overall prospect.
There’s a bit of a difference between the respective recruiting services, including 247sports, which has Mashack as high as No. 43 overall. Either way, he’s a consensus four-star recruit with high-major talent and will be a strong commitment for whichever team that lands him.
What separates Mashack from other high school recruits is his already stellar reputation on defense. Most top-tier recruits are known for scoring 20-30 ppg on offense while being a “work in progress” on the other hand. This prospect already can defend most shooting guards and wings at a high level, while also capable of shooting at a high clip from deep. That makes Mashack capable of being an instant impact player as a freshman.
While most players these days are seriously considering staying close to home. Mashack’s recruitment is truly national. The Southern California native has just a single school from the state inside his top six, surprisingly excluding the likes of USC and UCLA.
But one of the following six programs will benefit from that. With a decision less than a week away, here’s a look at Mashack’s potential fit with each perspective roster in the 2021 class.
