Dansby Starting To Heat Up

Shane Dansby's star could be on the rise. He's played well this spring and has generated interest on a number of fronts.

When you can shoot, and this guy can, college coaches take notice. Kingston Springs (TN) Harpeth guard Shane Dansby is a player.

Early in the spring, he showed his skills at the Kingwood Classic with coaches in attendance. "[The spring events were] great for me," Dansby said. "I go to a smaller school and most schools aren't going to come see me."

If they did go watch Dansby, they'd learn he's a quick trigger on the perimeter and isn't afraid to get to the glass either. He averaged 20 points and 11 boards a game last year as a junior.

The offers are trickling in but the interest is mounting. Chattanooga, Belmont and Appalachian State have offered. Interest is coming from George Mason, Murray State, Richmond, Lehigh and Western Kentucky. Stanford called, but he'll need a grade boost to get that one done.

"I'd like to decide in early September after I take my visits," Dansby said.

The Tennessee Volunteers have shown interest in Dansby too. But, the Vols plan calls for a year of prep school and that's not something Dansby has given a lot of thought to.
