Two showing Bibbs the most interest

Ohio native Justin Bibbs completed his junior year at Montverde Academy in Florida, and since then he has had an excellent spring with Ohio Basketball Club.

Three-star shooting guard Justin Bibbs is a Dayton, Ohio native who prepped this past year at Montverde (Fla) Academy. The 6-foot-4 wing was a role player on a loaded team, but this spring on the AAU circuit he has really risen to the occasion as the man on Ohio Basketball Club.

Bibbs is the go to scorer for OBC, and he showed that with a few impressive games at the Spiece Run N Slam, and overall the spring has been a productive one for him.

"I have played good," said Bibbs. "Every game I have been giving 100 percent and trying to get my motor up and doing everything I can to help my team win."

Recruiting wise several schools have been active in recruiting Bibbs.

"Xavier, Dayton, Rhode Island, Memphis, Virginia Tech, Miami, VCU, Virginia, and that is about it right now," said Bibbs.

Even with a long list, Bibbs says that two schools right now are recruiting him the hardest.

"Probably Xavier and Dayton are the schools showing me the most interest," explained Bibbs.

When it comes to Xavier, Head Coach Chris Mack has been showing a lot of attention to Bibbs and that is one of the things that stands out.

"They are showing a lot of interest," said Bibbs of Xavier. "Coach Mack was at every game during the April evaluation period. He wants me to come in and be a key contributor to the team."

Also his hometown school, Dayton, is right there. Bibbs says the Flyers and Head Coach Archie Miller have also been extremely active.

"The funny thing is I have never been to a Dayton game," said Bibbs. "Growing up I have never been to one. They use their guards real well and play a good style."

For now Bibbs says he is content to take things slowly and isn't putting pressure on himself to rush anything.

"I am taking everything step by step and not getting a big head," said Bibbs. "I know I just have to keep playing and keep getting better."
