Cyrus adapting to new role
Making the adjustment from being a start at a high school to a normal player at a high powered prep school is never easy. With that it was a bit of a rough start for La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere wing Brandon Cyrus, but now he says he is comfortable in his role. At 6-foot-4 with big time athleticism, Cyrus is someone who can really change the game with his effort and energy. However it was a bit of a slow start for Cyrus, but now he says he is comfortable and playing better. “It started off rough, but the last few weeks I have found my place,” said Cyrus. “I bring energy when I come into the games, and I think I now know my role and I am playing better.” Recruiting wise Arizona State, San Diego State, and California have been involved with Cyrus for a little while, and now a few new schools are entering the mix. “It is the usual schools,” noted Cyrus. “San Diego State a lot, and recently I have been in contact with Wake Forest and Northwestern. Those would be the newest schools.” Though he is originally from Canada, Cyrus’ family currently lives in San Diego, and with that there is a lot of familiarity with the Aztecs program. “Home is where my family is,” explained Cyrus. “San Diego State, at this point I know the staff, I know the system, and it is a good relationship.” A new school involved is Northwestern, and it is a testament to Cyrus’ commitment not only on the court but in the classroom. “It is big to hear from them,” said Cyrus of the Wildcats. “It shows that academics can get you looks, and they are a basketball program on the rise.” For now Cyrus is taking his recruitment slow, and says he is simply concentrating on getting better. “I am definitely working on my jump shot,” noted Cyrus. “Specifically I am working on getting my hips square and having my feet ready. Basically I am watching Jalen (Coleman-Lands) and that helps me out a lot.”
