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 mid-range at times. He's much, much better as a 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 way off and there are no guarantees in recruiting.
