Findlay Senior Guard Has Interest

Findlay Prep's last remaining uncommitted senior is starting to score interest from a number of college programs.

It's easy to get lost in the shuffle on such a talented team like Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep.

Keep in mind Mike Peck and Todd Simon's roster is filled with high major prospects. In the 2011 class they have a trio of top 100 players – Myck Kabongo, Nick Johnson and Amir Garrett. All three have signed to play with a high major school.

The fourth senior at Findlay is Turkey native Kevin Kaspar. While he hasn't received the type of interest those three have, he's certainly reeling in attention from college programs.

Creighton, Utah State, South Florida, Central Michigan and Santa Clara have shown the most interest in Kaspar, a 6-foot, 165-pound guard.

"I'm still wide open," Kaspar admitted to Scout.com. "My first offer was Creighton. I'm getting a couple more everyday."

Although he hasn't take any visits yet. Kaspar said he's planning to visit Utah State in the near future.

On the court he's found a way to be effective for the Pilots and even buried the game winning three-pointer earlier in the year against Las Vegas (Nev.) Findlay Prep.

"I'm coming off the bench and I'm sharing the position with Myck," Kaspar said. "Sometimes I play the wing and sometimes he plays the wing. I'm doing pretty well."

"When I get in the game I run the team," he added. "I run the offense and I try to make open shots and try to find the open man. I just try to make good decisions and I play defense. Coach is big on that.

Kaspar is averaging nearly seven points and just over three assists per outing for Findlay, who sits at 24 – 2 on the season.

"Kevin is a true cerebral point guard that is ball hawk defensively," Simon, Findlay's assistant coach, said. "Kevin is one of our most efficient three point threats and has stepped up to hit big shots for us."

Overall Kaspar is shooting over 50-percent from the field. But from three he's shooting an impressive 47.4-percent.
