Jordann Dumont is a 6-foot-8 junior at Chattanooga (TN) Hamilton Heights Academy. The class of 2023 wing is averaging 24 points, nine rebounds, and three assists on the season while shooting 37-percent from three.

“I am working a lot on everything,” Dumont told On3 after a recent win in the Dr. Pepper Classic. “I’m tall and can dribble and shoot the ball naturally, but I have been rebounding well this season. I’m concentrating on playing defense; I can be good there with my length and athleticism. I watch a lot of Jayson Tatum, he is tall like me and can score the ball, so I try and watch that.”

The native of Montreal, Quebec, is starting to pick up college interest this summer playing with the independent MTL Prospects group. Jordann Dumont recently spoke exclusively with On3 about how his recruitment is beginning to pick up.

“I just got an offer from Jacksonville,” Dumont said. “I took unofficial visits to Tennessee and Western Kentucky recently, and they have not offered yet, but I am hearing from them a lot.”

Dumont talks recruitment

Jacksonville: “I have watched them a couple of times this year. Their style fits how I play. I like the coaches, they are young, and I talk with them a lot. They have a good program.”

Tennessee: “Everything there is very nice. They have a nice building and a great coaching staff.”

Western Kentucky: “The team was really nice. They were good to be around. And the coaches were good to me there.”

“I am also hearing from Loyola-Chicago, Tennessee State, and Rice a good bit,” Dumont said,

Dumont’s take

“My dream college is Michigan State,” Dumont said. “I think they fit my playing style and how I play. I’m just looking for the best fit for me to play basketball and get better. I am looking to play at the next level after college, so I want to go to a place where I can get ready for that.”

On3’s take

Jordann Dumont carries a natural basketball frame. At 6-8, he has good length and explosion. Dumont moves well, both laterally and vertically, which leads to believe that as he learns the finer nuances of playing defense, there is a lot of upside on that end. He is skilled in the open floor, with the ball in his hands, and can knock down open looks with his feet set. Dumont is tightening his ball-handling in the half-court and is learning reads off the ball. There are a lot of natural tools to work with, and his in-game production is already high. This year is his first playing in the U.S., and college programs are finding out more about him. Tuck away this name and watch closely this summer; there could be a quick rise that happens.
