2014 Intro: Justin Strings

Justin Strings has had a nice to start to his junior season. Here's an intro to the game and recruitment of the 2014 prospect.

One of the biggest sleepers at the forward position in Southern California is 6-foot-5, 200-pound Manhattan Beach Mira Costa's Justin Strings.

The junior has grown a couple inches in the past year and has the long arms and young face of a kid who will get taller. Regardless, he has a high basketball IQ, is a skilled passer and has really good feet with a deceptive first step to the basket.

Strings is happy with how the start of his junior year has gone.

"I've been playing pretty well," Strings said. "I had a good start to the season and we're playing well as a team.

"I think I'm finishing better than I did last year. I'm also spreading the floor more and attacking the basket better but I need to work on getting bigger and stronger overall."

The 2014 prospect has reported interest from U.C. Davis, Northern Arizona and U.C. Irvine, and will be looking for the best combination of academics and athletics.

"I'll be looking for a school that helps me get the best education I can, while I can also get into the game and contribute to the team," Strings said.

Strings reports a 3.5 GPA.
