Jarrett Culver was born in Dallas in 1999. His parents, Hiawatha, a pastor, and Regina, the director of a local Head Start program, instilled in Culver and his two brothers an early love for religion and basketball. Culver's father is the team chaplain at Texas Tech University, where Culver spent four years playing basketball, and where older brother Trey competed in track and field. The third Culver brother, J.J., plays college basketball at Wayland Baptist University. Jarrett became a star at Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas, averaging 20.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game as a junior. He upped those totals as a senior, averaging 30.0 points per game. Culver chose Texas Tech over the likes of the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Christian University and Oklahoma State, choosing to stay close to his family in the town that raised him.
