Southern Methodist offered Neumann-Goretti senior Jamal Custis a basketball and football scholarship according to Custis and his AAU coach, Charles Martin.

The 6-foot-6 swingman and wide reciever said he has an interest in pursuing both sports in college.

“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.
