Four-star junior Jahmai Mashack talks his recruitment

July 19, 2020

Etiwanda [CA] wing Jahmai Mashack has had quite the quarantine as far as his recruitment goes placing calls with many programs and earning himself a handful of high-major offers. The 6-foot-5 wing has emerged as a national prospect despite just earning his tenth offer recently. Many schools are looming and making calls with him.

"Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah have been some of the early offers. Arizona & Louisville have been a couple of the more recent offers all with virtual visits. Arizona State & Texas are in communication daily but nothing official," he told

Recently, this summer, he earned his first ACC offer from Louisville. "Coach Mack was great," he said, the Cardinals would wound up extending a scholarship and will likely make a major push at getting him on campus once this all ends.

Another program that has gotten an up-close look in Arizona recently offered him and showed him the campus. While recruiting his teammate, Jaylen Clark, they got their first look at Mashack and observed even more heavily during this time and would end up offering.

LMU is another school that he mentioned. Former Marquette assistant Stan Johnson took over the job at Loyola Marymount after this season. He didn't shy away from recruiting any four-stars and five-stars, especially from the West Coast. "There is still a chance I stay home with the LMU offer for sure."

The next school that will do a virtual campus visit with Mashack is Tennessee. They will virtually meet with him on Tuesday and Rick Barnes has made it a priority to speak with Mashack and I fully expect the Vols to make a major push here and try and land a pledge from the Etiwanda product.

"My game is built-in defense and versatility. I know how to play on or off-ball. This year I'll have the ball in my hands a lot more so everybody will get to see my full bag."

In addition, Mashack has been able to stay positive and has actually said this pandemic has impacted his recruitment in a good way.

"Crazy thing is this pandemic has actually helped coaches get to know me better. I'm definitely like a basketball historian, I can talk hoop all day. So it's cool to connect with the coaches on another level and even learn about their background."
