2024 Gwynn Park/New World guardis prepping for the first live period this weekend on the 3SSB Circuit after establishing himself as one of the better junior guards in the DMV this winter. His blend of size, skill and upside all leave plenty of intrigue for scouts and college coaches. With consistency more programs will make their way into the fold, but after taking the floor this past weekend at CBG Grassroots Tip-off and the DMV Warm-up, new programs have already entered the sweepstakes.
George Mason, George Washington and American all extended offers to Bevins this week and Prep Hoops caught up with him to talk about each.
George Mason: “George Mason had offered me before, but since there is a new coaching staff there they wanted to re-offer me. Assistant coach Lou Hinnant gave me a call and extended the offer and was just telling me that he sees a lot of himself in me. Just being a bigger guard and he’s actually from the DMV and went to Gwynn Park. He told me that he really wants to recruit the area hard and thinks that I’m one of the best players in the DMV. He wants to help change that program around.”
George Washington: “Coach Caputo and Coach Franklin were the coaches who offered me. It was a good conversation. He didn’t know I was a legit 6-foot-5 and he was just saying that he likes bigger guards. He likes guys who can play both on or off the ball. I think they led their conference in a statistic dealing with the amount of pick-and-rolls they run, so he was saying he feels like I can play a lot out of that.”
American: “I started off the conversation with coach Duane Simpkins congratulating him on the head coaching position. I feel like he deserved it with being at George Mason for a long time. He was just saying that he feels like I’m one of the better players in the DMV. He wants me to be more aggressive and assertive as he watches me moving forward.”
Other than these three programs, Bevins has heard recently from the likes of Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and Temple. No visits are set in stone right now, but Bevins plans on taking the short drive to visit George Washington and George Mason in the near future, he told Prep Hoops.
As for this weekend, Bevins has some goals in mind of what he wants to showcase in Omaha.
“Just showing more coaches my talents. I want to show that I can get my team involved, shoot the ball well and most importantly strap up on defense.
Bevins ranks as the No. 8 overall prospect in the MD/DC 2024 rankings.
