Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 4/15/2000

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder for his size
Above average athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Struggles to guard quicker players
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Jamarius Burton is a strong, athletic combo guard that can ably create his own shot to score or pass the basketball in games. He is having a solid senior season for Pittsburgh this year, and he made a clutch, go-ahead basket to help his team get a win over Mississippi State in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. He is a player that can play either backcourt position. He’ll need to improve his jump shot, but his ability to make plays on offense could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
