2015 Intro: Raymond Spalding

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Raymond Spalding, a 6-foot-9 big man out of Louisville, impressed at a Tennessee Travelers practice this past weekend.

Raymond Spalding, a 6-foot-9 big man, is a 2015 prospect to keep an eye.

Spalding showed promise early last spring playing for the Tennessee Travelers 16's team. But shortly after a strong showing at EYBL Hampton, Spalding broke a bone in his left leg.

"I was out six months," Spalding said.

Now the Louisville (Ky.) Trinity product is healthy and in a Travelers practice on Saturday, he impressed with his ability to run the floor, his all around skill set and his length.

"I'm playing pretty well coming off that injury," Spalding explained after practice. "It was a little tough to get back into conditioning and getting over it."

Spalding said he's already heard from Boston College, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Tennessee, Western Kentucky, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Boston College and WKU stopped by his school this season.

He also took a visit to Louisville last year.

"I went and visited Louisville," he said. "It was nice. This was last year. I just watched them practice."

Despite being a sophomore, Spalding will play up for the Traveler's 17's team. They'll tip things off in at the EYBL event in Los Angeles the weekend of April 20th.
