Position: Point guard
Size: 6-2, 170 pounds
Stats: As a junior, he averaged 15 points, 6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and shot 48 percent from the field, 36 percent beyond the 3-point line and 77 percent from the line.
Interest: Northwest Mississippi, Ouachita Baptist, UA-Fort Smith, Dyersburg Community College
Coach McKenzie Pierce:
“He’s was all-conference and All-NEA his junior year. Tremendous ballhandler who can get anywhere on the floor and create for himself or others. He is young for his class. Won’t turn 17 until the middle of August. He was 5-8 his sophomore year and stands at 6-2 now and is still growing. He was also on the honor roll a year ago. Really great player and person.”
