Basketball Recruiting

New Jersey native Jeremiah Bembry talks his recruitment

December 20, 2020

One of the next successors out of the state of New Jersey is none other than 2022 prospect Jeremiah Bembry. The 6-foot-6 guard has a solid frame and skill set that has already drawn the attention of the high-major programs involved with him. 

Outside of his basketball talent, Bembry is also very high on academics, landing himself amazing grades and off-the-floor character. In another word, Bembry is very intrigued in college. He holds a handful of Ivy League offers and is currently a 4.0 student.

In his freshman year at Marist High School (NJ), he averaged 16.3 points per game and was competing against the likes of The Patrick School, Roselle Catholic, and some other top-notch powerhouses in New Jersey.

Bembry recently played in Isaiah Whitehead’s combine event, where he shined. Now, he discussed his recruitment with

Which schools would you say are currently involved in your recruitment?

“In no order, Kansas, Ole Miss, Penn, Mississipi State, LSU, Stanford, UCSB, Detroit Mercy, Columbia, Howard, Rutgers, and Seton Hall.”

Who are the newest schools to enter the mix?

“Kansas and Rutgers.”

Why is a program like Penn so intriguing for you, thoughts on them?

“Penn’s staff contacts me every day and checks on me, I can’t go wrong with Penn because it’s one of the best academic schools in the country.”

How about Ole Miss, they’ve been on you for a while.

“They contact me every day and check in on me daily to see how I’m doing and how my academics and basketball is going. Everybody on the staff contacts me. I love the SEC and the competition.”

And how about a newer program in the mix, Kansas?

“Kansas hasn’t offered me yet but they check on me every day and contact me more than once a day they are just waiting to see me play more this season.”

Describe your game?

“I’m a pass-first point guard, very athletic as well. I have great body control, great off the dribble, and I can also hit jumpers on the dribble as well. Ball dominant guard, lockdown defender, and I will guard up all 94-feet. I also feel I have a very solid basketball IQ.”
