“Jamal can do whatever he sets his mind to,” Martin said. “He’s an excellent football player but also a great basketball player, but he wants to pursue both sports. We’ve visited Rutgers, and we have Pittsburgh and Syracuse lined up.”

“He wants to pursue both sports at a higher level and at Rutgers we discussed both and we will discuss dual-sports at other colleges as well.”

Custis is currently playing for the Philly Blackhawks at the Hoop Group Summer Classic East Tournament. The invitation-only classic features 48 teams with age groups ranging from fifteen to seventeen.
