Delaware Big Man Attracting Attention

Erique Gumbs
Caravel Academy (DE) turned some heads over the weekend with a strong showing in the National Bracket at the Bay Ball Classic.  They knocked off perenial NYC power Christ the King 61-60 on Friday to advance to the semifinals.  They then advance to the finals after a 60-51 victory over Kempsville (VA).  The Buccaneers finally bowed out to national power Rice (NY) in the championship game 74-41.

Caravel advanced deep in their bracket thanks in large part to their strong frontcourt duo of juniors Erique Gumbs and Dominic Morris.  Both Gumbs and Morris have impressive size and skills.  They are able to to beat their opponents with power and quickness.  Both are dominant on the boards as well.  Everything they do looks so fluid and smooth.  They'll give many frontcourts throughout the country fits, not just their opposition in the first state.  For the tournament, Gumbs averaged 11 points and 11.3 rebounds.  Morris averaged 13.7 points and 9.3 rebounds.

Gumbs strong play had already caught the eye of several programs prior to the Bay Ball Classic.  The talented post player already holds an instate offer from the University of Delaware.  He's also attrached early interest from Towson, Penn, Davidson and Pittsburgh.  Look for his interest to increase after a strong holiday tournament.  Right now, he looks like a solid mid major prospect.  If he can continue to develop he does have the potential to be high major player.
