Interest for David George reflects top notch academics

Last week we had a chance to get a number of the players from the Hunting Park Warriors on the phone to discuss the current state of their recruitment and a little about their games.

For our fourth and final interview over the phone, we caught up with David George who recently reclassified and will be at Blair Academy in New Jersey this upcoming season.

One thing is clear is that David did not decide to reclassify for academic reasons as he is an outstanding student.  He has a 3.9 GPA and the list of schools after him reflects that.

He informed us that a lot of Patriot and Ivy league schools are after him.  The schools he listed were Colgate, Lafayette, Holy Cross, Columbia, Brown, Drexel, Marist, and Davidson.  Penn, Richmond, Bucknell, High Point and UNC Wilmington are also involved.

Four schools have already offered him and they are Holy Cross, Columbia, Brown, and Colgate.

When making his decision David will be looking for a school with good academics and a good basketball program, but at this time he does not have any favorites.

When it comes to his game, Davis feels his strengths are his athleticism, rebounding and running the floor.  While he felt he needed to improve upon his strength.

Seeing him play on multiple occasions, this is definitely a fair self assessment.  His most glaring need is that he has to get stronger and add bulk to his frame.  He rebounds pretty well due to his length and athletic ability but added strength would definitely help him bang inside and hang on to the ball better.

What stood out most about his game though was his ability to put the ball on the floor, along with his athletic ability and how well he ran the floor.  For a player his size, he can face up and attack the hoop as well as post up.  Off the bounce he was not only able to score attacking the hoop but he also showed that he could pass off the dribble.  Defensively he also proved to be a shot blocking presence.

With his improving skill set and determination to get stronger, David should turn out be an absolute steal for any of the high profile academic institutions looking at him.
