There are few, if any, more talented players in the class of 2019 than North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard Westlake wing Cassius Stanley.
The five-star prospect came into high school surrounded by hype and he has more than lived up to it to this stage of his high school career.
“He had a really good year this past season,” Cassius' father Jerome said. “He led his team deep into CIF and garnered a bunch of awards in the process. We were really happy with how everything played out.
“The nice thing about my son is he’s never satisfied. We’re hitting the gym with a passion and it’s all about getting that jump shot improved.”
As would one expect, Stanley will have his choice of schools, but there are a couple that stand out to this point.
“As far as recruiting goes the two teams we’re hearing the most from are Stanford and Kansas," Stanley said.
"We took a tour of Stanford when we were up in Northern California and we were able to get a little bit of an idea about things, but to be honest, we don’t know a lot because, as you know, coaches aren’t allowed to contact us for a couple months.
“We’re interested in all schools though, so we’re anxiously awaiting to hear the pitch and what is out there.”
Expect a throng of college coaches to follow Stanley over the next few months.
“Cassius is going to have a pretty busy June and July," Jerome said. "He’s going to run AAU and he’s got some camps coming up where he’s going to be playing against some of the best players in the country."
