While only a freshman, Jamson Coulter Jr. has already received a couple of division one scholarship offers for himself. Between his play with Rich Township over the course of his first high school season and the young grassroots season already with Mac Irvin Fire, the 6’2” point guard has not only shown to be one of the top 2026 players in the Midwest but also a player to watch for in future national rankings. 

Even before starting his high school career last summer, Coulter received offers from both Northern Illinois and North Carolina A&T. These offers came following the June high school live period where Coulter shined at both the Riverside-Brookfield and Ridgewood Shootouts. “It feels good, but I got to stay focused and stay in the gym and take care of my body,” he said about already holding the offers at a young age.

As a freshman, he already made a big impact on the floor for Rich Township averaging 18.2 points per game.  Coulter has continued that high level of play into the spring grassroots season. He was one of the top players at the 15U level at the recent Swish N’ Dish Tournament and a key piece of the Mac Irvin Fire team that made it to the platinum semifinals. 

Coulter is a skilled and physical guard that excels on both ends of the floor. Offensively he is at his best playing on the attack with his explosiveness, finishing around the paint or distributing it out. Though he is also very capable of hitting shots in both the mid-range and from the outside. On the other end, he is a tough and aggressive on ball defender with his athleticism. There are few 2026 players in the region with his combination of tools.
