Palmer is a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, who plays his high school ball for Central Dauphin. Palmer, who was ranked by ESPN as a top-25 prospect in the initial 2024 rankings, holds offers from Pitt, Illinois, Houston, Creighton, Arizona State, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, LSU, Georgetown, DePaul and New Mexico State.
Almost two weeks ago, Palmer visited Pitt unofficially alongside several other prospects to check out the Panthers’ first football game.
Already standing at 6-foot-6, Palmer has elite size for the guard position to go with athleticism that is beyond his years. The sophomore prospect has shown the ability to score at will throughout his young prep career, and has mixed a smooth jump-shot with effortless jumping ability to bring his game to new heights.
