McGhee adds interest

Three-star small forward Jabari McGhee is having a very good spring and has high-major recruiting attention.

One of the more versatile wings in the state of Georgia is Jabari McGhee. The three-star small forward from Albany (Ga.) Monroe High School is attracting high-major attention, and looks to be making improvements to his game.

Playing for Atlanta Xpress, McGhee is a part of one of the best teams on the AAU circuit, and he feels they can do some great things this summer.

"I think we can accomplish a lot," said McGhee. "Every time we get on the court we just play hard and play together."

At almost 6-foot-6 and 180 pounds, McGhee is slight of build, but feels he has made major improvements to his game.

"I have gotten a lot better," said McGhee. "I am working on a lot of things like boxing out, rebounding, and shooting. I am not that big, so I got to get in where I can."

Recruiting wise high-major schools have really been tracking McGhee and closely following what he has been doing.

"I am hearing from Florida State, Oregon, Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia, Ole Miss, Syracuse, and a couple of others," McGhee noted.

Recently McGhee hasn't made any visits, but there is one school he definitely wants to check out soon.

"I want to go see Florida State," McGhee explained. "I like the way they play. They play hard and they like getting after it on the defensive end and also they will push the ball up the floor."

For now McGhee has no timetable on when he hopes to make a decision on his future. Instead he is just focused on getting better and the AAU season. Still he does have a pretty good idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking for a good academic school because you never know with basketball," said McGhee. "Also I am looking for a team with good coaches and players that are good to be around."
