What Does Scott Shafer Think Of Him: "He told me he wanted to just cause matchup problems," Custis said here last week, one day after head coach Scott Shafer, wide receivers coach Rob Moore and McDonald visited with the Class of 2014 verbal commitment.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: You remember Nuemann-Goretti as the high school that brought us Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson. No word on Jamal's cousin-ness.
