Barcello holds three offers

Alex Barcello holds three early scholarship offers, while some other programs are monitoring the 2017 prospect.

One of the top West Coast point guards in 2017 comes from Tempe (Ariz.) Corona del Sol in Alex Barcello.

The 6-foot-2, 165-pound sophomore has a high basketball IQ and sees the court very well but is also a very capable shooter and scorer.

After a strong summer, Barcello is happy with how his game is coming along this season.

"I'm working hard every day," Barcello said. "I'm seeing the floor better, getting my teammates open shots and I'm hitting open shots.

"When I need to take over the game, I can take over the game. I'm working on not making careless passes.

Barcello holds offers from New Mexico, Grand Canyon and Virginia, while Gonzaga, California and Saint Mary's are all showing interest.

He says that it's still early in his recruitment.

"I'm wide open," Barcello says. "I'm looking for somewhere I can fit in and play how I want to play."
