  • Kadeem Jack to Prep School

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kadeem Jack was set to announce his college choice Wednesday on SNY.tv, but instead appears headed to prep school, possibly South Kent (Conn).

    “Kadeem said that he is not making any commitments to college. He is considering prep school,” Rice High School coach Maurice Hicks wrote in a text.

    The 6-foot-9 Jack is considering UConn, Arizona, Arkansas, St. John’s and Miami. Instead, it appears he will spend a year prepping in order to mature physically and basketball-wise.

    “I’ve reached out to the family and obviously I would love to have Kadeem at South Kent if that’s something he feels he would like to do,” South Kent coach Kelvin Jefferson said by phone.

    South Kent has become a second home to many New York-area players, including Kevin Parrom (Arizona), Omari Lawrence (St. John’s), Louisville commit Russell Smith and Pittsburgh commit J.J. Moore.

    Jack put up 21 points and 8 rebounds for the City Team in a 137-133 loss to the Suburban Team in the Jordan Brand Regional Game April 17 at MSG.

    Jefferson said Paterson Catholic junior forward Derrick Randall was also headed to South Kent. The 6-8 junior is too old to play high school ball in New Jersey next season and Paterson Catholic recently announced it is closing in June.
