Kirk shows athleticism caught up with athletic combo forward Shaun Kirk at EYBL Dallas. Kirk told Scout that he has a handful of scholarship offers and is planning to be a member of the 2016 class.

One of the more intriguing prospects at EYBL Dallas this past weekend was 6-foot-6 lengthy Team United Shaun Kirk.

Kirk, of Whiteville (N.C.) High, threw down dunk after dunk in transition, finished strongly in the paint and even showed he could step out and make perimeter jump shots.

"I try and bring as much as I can, play hard and help get my teammates involved and mostly help rebound because rebounding and defense wins game," Kirk told

An impressive all around athlete, Kirk plays above the rim and moves well both laterally and running up and down the court. According to Kirk, his ball handling and defense are areas for improvement.

"Mainly my ball handling and my defense so I can learn how to guard the two," he responded when asked what he was working on. "I can play in and out. I'm learning how to play the three and two on defense."

There has been speculation regarding what class Kirk plans to be in. He's planning to be a member of the 2016 class.

"I'm thinking about after I graduate that I'll go post-grad for an extra year to develop my skill set a little bit more," Kirk said.

Kirk then definitively said he's a 2016 recruit.

From a recruiting standpoint, he claims scholarship offers from Charlotte, Baylor, VCU and Auburn. He also mentioned said that N.C. State and Clemson were among the schools recruiting him the hardest. He's taken unofficial visits to both schools.
