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.
