Prior to OCC: Jamal averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 assists, and 1.2 steals as a senior for coach Pete Ellis. Jamal was highly recruited by several JUCO programs before signing with OCC.
Coach Burris on Jamal: "JC is hungry. He wants to be a very good player. He has the ability to play the 3-5 spots for us. We think by the time he leaves here that he will be a D1 recruit. He can rebound and block shots but his offensive skills are rapidly evolving. He has great length and athleticism. He's a great kid who wants to be good."
