2015 Intro: Kyle Leufroy

A strong season from Kyle Leufroy has landed the 2015 combo guard on the map. Here's an intro into the SoCal prospect's game and recruitment.

There are always late bloomers that show up seemingly out of nowhere in the Los Angeles area and this season has been no different.

One of the most recent emergences has come from 6-foot-2, 185-pound La Canada (Calif.) St. Francis shooting guard Kyle Leufroy.

A 2015 guard who plays on and off the ball, Leufroy has a good, strong frame with very long arms. While he may be better off the ball, he's a terrific passer and that allows him to play some point guard too.

As a scorer, Leufroy is capable of hitting from three, has a pull-up midrange jumper, rebounds well for a guard and plays hard on both ends of the court. He's a good prospect that is sure to get a lot more recruiting attention as he's seen more in the summer.

Scoring off the dribble is something that Leufroy says he takes pride in.

"I attack, I like going to the basket and when I do I can create contact and get to the line and I'm working on my jumper," he said. "I'm also working on finishing and dribbling."

While most high school guards are insistent that they play the point, Leufroy isn't as worried about it.

"I'm a combo guard," Leufroy said. "I'll play wherever I'm needed."

So far, Leufroy listed college interest from U.C. Irvine, LMU, Northern Arizona and Stanford, with a team he was a fan of as a kid.

"I grew up rooting for UCLA," Leufroy said. "My dad was a UCLA fan so I watched them."

There are a handful of aspects of a program that Leufroy will be looking at.

"I'm looking for a good basketball program, good academics and a good all-around school. I'll play wherever," he said.
