A blue-chip prospect in the class of 2017 is unexpectedly back on the market, very late in the summer.
Jamarko Pickett committed to Ole Miss back on October 20 and signed with the Rebels on November 9.
It was a quick decision. According to 247Sports, the only other school he visited was Rhode Island, which came after his commitment.
Pickett, the No. 76 player in the class of 2017, is now unexpectedly back on the market.
He is having second thoughts about Ole Miss, and was granted his release from the National Letter of Intent. From Scout:
2017 four-star recruit Jamorko Pickett has been released from his National Letter of Intent to Mississippi, Massanutten Military Academy coach Chad Myers told Scout.
“Jamorko told me that he wants to re-evaluate his situation to make sure that he’s making the best decision for him,” Myers said.
It is unclear where Pickett will be taking his newly reopened recruitment, especially because of the lack of schools that were involved the first time around, at least based on what we know publicly.
The news puts Ole Miss basketball in a tough spot. Pickett was the team’s highest ranked member of the class of 2017, and cuts that group down to two players. Good on head coach Andy Kennedy for acquiescing and allowing Pickett to make the right decision for his future, though.
