Jarrett Culver is an elite student-athlete currently attending Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas. Jarrett is among the best high school shooting guard prospects in the country, currently ranked the #23 shooting guard and #88 player overall for the class of 2017 per ESPN. The 6’5 wing is a priority for college coaches in need of a lengthy sharpshooter that can stretch the defense with a lethal stroke from distance with ability to create plays off the bounce, while possessing the ideal size and length to become a lockdown defender at the collegiate level. Best known for torching the nets with the three ball, Jarrett is also an honor roll student at Coronado High School.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great Spring, you’ve turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us how things are going for Pro Skills as a team and for you individually?
JC: As a team we are doing great! We made Peach Jam, which was the ultimate goal, so we’re all happy about that. We’re just always working to get better. Individually, I’ve been injured the past two EYBL sessions, so I haven’t played, but I’ve been recovering and still getting shots up and just continually trying to get back in the groove of things!

EM: How often do you work on your game?
JC: I work on my game every day. There’s always room to grow and something to work on, so I work every day.
