Despite the talent diaspora and late start to the season, Michigan’s 2023 class could be one of the nation’s strongest. One member of that group is Tyler Jamison, a 6-4 Port Northern Huron sophomore who had 39 point and 17 rebound in a 63-57 win at L’anse Creuse.
It looked like PHN had wrapped up the game when the third quarter ended with Jamison making an assist from the corner then getting a steal and dunk right before the horn expired and a 47-30 lead. Then as Northern began to play to lose and L’anse Creuse with little to lose, it became tight before Huskies senior Gavin Shcwentor made 6-of-6 shots in the closing minutes to seal the win.
Jamison was a catalyst throughout, putting pressure on L’anse Creuse’s defense going to the rim and making things happen, He may have Moses Maloned it a bit on the offensive glass but it usually ended up with a layup or free throws. He shoots it easily from 20 as well, making it a tough cover because he’s a triple-threat from the top or wings. Jamison has feel and vision as a passer, and the hoops IQ of the coach’s son he is (with a 4.0+ gpa). If anything he welcomes the double team as he can pass out or split it. Can get lower than defenders may expect at 6-4. Versatile enough to play as a passer/cutter, or ball-dominant force the issue and fill the stat sheet modern guard. Plays with energy on defense as well.
Brother Rice sophomore Curtis Williams is clearly the top wing guard prospect in Michigan’s 2023 class. Jamison is in the mix with guys like Brother Rice’s Henry Garrity and Ypsilanti Lincoln’s Braelon Green as trending D1 with level TBD. A best case scenario for Jamison would be a Dane Fife type high major player.
