The rise of University of San Francisco senior starting point guard Jamaree Bouyea was not smooth sailing. The Seaside point guard now is the senior leader for the Dons and averaging 17pts 4ast 3 rebs per game. Below were 2 great article by Kevin Mccarthy & Section 925 that tells Jamaree's true journey!
For the record, Bouyea also had contact with four other Northern California D1 schools:
- The Seaside’s Finest travel team attended the St. Mary’s Summer Camp led by Gael Coach Randy Bennett. Additionally, Associate Head Coach Marcus Schroeder watched Bouyea play in a high school open division playoff game and Bennett was in attendance when Palma High played at the state championships.
- Bouyea went on an unofficial visit to UC Davis, meeting Coach Jim Les.
- San Jose State University (SJSU) Assistant Coach Tyler Ojanen reached out for a phone conversation with Bouyea.
- Seaside Select Coach Jason Hieb and Palma Coach Paul Alioto talked about Bouyea with Hawaii Head Coach Eran Ganot and Associate Head Coach Adam Jacobsen.
Additionally, three D2 programs also displayed interest, resulting in two offers:
- Bouyea visited Fresno Pacific University (FPU) Coach C.J. Haydock on an official visit and left with a full ride offer, his first. Members of the Sunbirds’ coaching staff were mainstays at Bouyea’s travel team tournaments and high school playoff games.
- Cal State East Bay Gus Argenal liked what he scouted and became Bouyea’s second scholarship offer.
- Bouyea met with Head Coach Vince Inglima on his visit to San Francisco State University.

"Even while compiling one of the greatest high school basketball careers in Palma HS history and starring for Seaside’s Finest formidable AAU program, the D1 offers didn’t exactly start pouring in for Bouyea as he put together league MVP seasons and runs to the state title game in the capital. In fact, not one offer came in. “To be honest, I can’t tell you exactly why,” says Bouyea, days after his 18-point performance at Gonzaga. “When I would go to summer camps at places like Stanford and UOP, I would just kind of play my role on the team. Everyone would tell me to try to take over more and score as much as possible, but that just wasn’t my style as a point guard.”
By the time Bouyea’s senior year of school rolled around, Hieb started to wonder if it was too late to be thinking D1 any longer. “There’s a certain point where you just need to go where you are wanted. You can’t wait forever,” he explained. " - Section 925
