Falzon garners interest

The recruiting process is going well for 2015 power forward Aaron Falzon.

Versatile power forwards have become a staple in college basketball. At this early stage in the 2015 class one of the best is Aaron Falzon. The Southborough (Mass.) St. Mark's product has had an impressive spring and early summer and is garnering major college attention.

At nearly 6-foot-8 with a nice shooting stroke, Falzon gets a lot of attention for his ability from the perimeter. However he now says the focus is on being an inside-out threat.

"I think the summer has started off well," said Falzon. "I am trying to show people that I can go down low and score. A lot of people know I can shoot the three, but I am also showing I can play down low a lot more now."

At this point Falzon says he doesn't have an offer, but numerous schools are showing him significant recruiting attention.

"I've visited Boston College and Massachusetts," noted Falzon. "I have talked to Ohio State, went to a camp at Duke, and my coach has heard some from UCLA and Stanford."

The visit to BC wasn't a difficult one for Falzon given that he is very familiar with the school and the surroundings.

"It was a nice campus," said Falzon. "I think they are an up and coming team. I've always liked BC because I live like five minutes away, so it is real familiar."

Also recently he made a trip down to Duke to participate in their camp, and said he did it to get familiar with the coaches.

"I met with a couple of the assistant coaches," explained Falzon. "It was a camp. I went down there to let them see me. I talked with Coach (Chris) Collins down there."

When on visits and talking to coaches, Falzon is already looking for a sense of comfort with each school.

"I pay attention to the coaching staff and seeing the style of play," said Falzon. "The most important thing to me is to be comfortable and be able to play for a coach who will push me and make me better."

For now though, Falzon is taking things methodically and is just focused on putting together an impressive July on the AAU circuit.

"I'm just trying to show people that I am an all-around player who is a stretch four who plays inside and outside," said Falzon.
