The Tigers will look to him to provide some offensive production in their matchup with ERHS and he has shown his ability to put up plenty of buckets in a small amount of time during various parts of the season. He has a long wingspan, can score the ball from multiple levels and is a very intriguing prospect for college programs.
His impact and stats from the regular season have been simply impressive and he is one of the better unsigned seniors that remains on the board. He plays bigger than his height, has impressive athletic ability and doesn’t hesitate at all about mixing it up inside with opponent’s regardless of their size, which is one of the reasons why they have found a high amount of success.
The Mustangs will look to him early on to establish himself inside the paint offensively as he’s done so many times before this season. Clearly, he will have the height advantage on Saturday and will look to exploit that advantage early and often.
Big time players make big time plays in big time games and that’s what we are fully expecting to see from this young man. MPHS dominated his squad early on in the season before his return the team. His ability to score the ball in various ways is one of his strengths but he also does a nice job of getting teammates involved and finding his offense within the flow of the team concept.
His play in the Eastern Regional Championship game was big-time for his team in their win over Holly Springs. He caught fire late in the game from three-point land and was the spark that they needed to get over the hump. Richmond will need another big time showing from him on Saturday if they hope to get the championship win over Myers Park.
The 6’4 Guard is the type of player that you love to have on your squad and is the type of prospect that catches the attention of college coaches almost immediately. He has a nice natural feel for the game, understands how to balance his scoring ability with facilitating to teammates and can be just as good on defense as he is on the offensive end.
