Jamy has a wide range of expertise around the sports world and shares it daily.
At first, I wasn’t going to include him on this list as it’s not directly recruiting based, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized he is a huge recruiting help.
From being a leader, to managing academics, and developing life-skills so you can build up the character component coaches are looking for in recruits.
