2015 PG Already Drawing Interest
JaMichael Brown, a well built 6'1" 195lb point guard for SA Madison, had an incredible summer for the SA210 JayHawks and is on the verge of potentially landing some offers. "We went to play in St. Louis and Las Vegas. Both were pretty big AAU tournaments," said Brown. As a result of his play, these programs are now interested: Kansas State, Texas A&M, Texas-Arlington, Sam Houston State, Houston, SFA, UTSA, and Kennesaw State. The UTSA staff saw plenty of Brown's games and let him know that they're high on him and will be watching closely. "In Las Vegas the UTSA staff said they really liked me and that I could be a big game changer for their program. They're going to be recruiting me very hard," said Brown. Brown is currently open to all comers and distance doesn't really matter on where he'll decide. He is quick to say that the main factor he's looking for will be playing time. He understands he has to earn it, he simply wants that chance as a true freshman. As a sophomore for Madison he earned the rare honor of being selected to the San Antonio Express New's All Super Team while averaing 20 ppg, 8 assists and 5 rebs. Madison Head Basketball Coach Chris Romine has already told Brown that he'll be making the full time switch to point guard for the Mavs this coming season and that's not a problem for Ja'Michael. "I pretty much do whatever the coach asks me to do, create for the team or just find my own shot. I'm still working on improving my mid-range game. I have the mentality of a slasher to get the basket and finish," said Brown. One thing that Brown is trying to take care of so that he can have plenty of options at the next level, are his grades. Currently he says in the classroom he's doing ok, but he could do better. He didn't take any summer classes this year, but he feels strongly that if he improves as he expects he might not have to worry about summer school next year either. "I haven't taken any summer classes at all. I'm going to see how my junior year goes in the classroom and if it goes how I expect, I shouldn't have to worry about it. If it doesn't, then I'll make the decision to take summer classes to help me improve," said Brown.
