Scout.com already ranks him as a four-star prospect and he's earned a prestigious slot on the SoCal All-Stars first team. On a team loaded with D-I talent, he is one of two freshmen making an impact.
A number of teams are already on him.
As of now Arizona is not sending a lot of letters, but the Wildcat coaches were able to see him play while scouting Chase Budinger and Taylor King and we've heard they may pay him a visit at his high school in the next month.
Obviously a lot will change between now and 2008, but Story knows what he wants in a program.
"Somewhere I can be comfortable playing basketball," Story said succinctly. "Somewhere I can get my education and everything."
Story has a very nice build for such a young player. Most players at that age are rail thin, but it is obvious Story has been in a weight room.
He's also a tremendous shooter. He's better from behind that arc, but can hit from midrange at times. He's much, much better as spot up shooter at this time, but you can see that with work he should be able to be a well rounded scorer.
"My dribbling, I need to work on that," Story confessed. "I just have to go out and do what I know I can do. I just have to go out play hard and try and get better."
Right now Story looks like he can be special. Just remember that 2008 is a long ways off and there are no guarantees in recruiting.
