When asked how he did, overall, during the combine, Jamariey said, "I think I did pretty good. Not as good as I wanted to do, but still pretty good."

Although he plays both wide receiver and cornerback, he performed his drills at the wide receiver position. He explained why.

"I feel I am better on the offensive side," said Jamariey. "I prefer playing receiver, but (Kosciusko head) coach (John Perry) on the other hand (laugh)...."

Coach Perry's not the only one that likes him at cornerback.

"Colleges are recruiting me for corner," said Jamariey.

One college coach, however, is giving him several position options on the next level.

"(Assistant) Coach (Reed) Stringer from (Mississippi) State said they will pretty much use me at receiver, kick returner, running back and playing on the defensive side of the ball," noted Jamariey.

As for schools showing him the most attention, two stand out with two right behind them.

"Right now, LSU and Mississippi State are showing the most interest," he said. "They've both offered. Ole Miss and Alabama are sending me a lot of stuff."

He explained why he's such a hot commodity with those colleges.

"College coaches tell me that I'm explosive," noted Jamariey. "Both of my recruiting coaches from LSU and State said that when the ball goes in the air I think that every ball is mine. I feel the same way."

He has his eye on three schools, including the two that have offered.

"I like LSU and Alabama. I also like Mississippi State," reported Jamariey.

Those three schools will get camp visits from him this coming summer.

"We are going to seven on seven camps at State, LSU, Alabama and Arkansas," commented Jamariey. "And we are going to go to a lot of junior and senior camps."
