On Wednesdays, we feature an in-state prospect who could be flying under the radar of college coaches. This week's UTR prospect Watson Chapel’s Antwon Emsweller Jr.
Size: 6-7, 195 pounds
Stats: As a junior, he averaged 15.4 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game.
Offer: East Central (Okla.) University
Interest: Oral Roberts, The Citadel
Coach Marcus Adams:
“He’s a 6-7 explosive, strong kid that plays with an extreme high motor. Great rebounder and rim protector. Plays above the rim. He has the right- and left-hand jump hook and his midrange jump shot has improved tremendously. He has shown a lot of growth over a year's time and think he will be a steal for any college.”
