Neely ready for big spring

After a tremendous high school season, point guard Brailen Neely is ready for a big spring.

It was a banner high school year for Detroit (Mich.) Western, and a big reason for that was the play of their point guard. 5-foot-10 Brailen Neely completely controlled things, and led the team to as good a season as possible.

"The season went well," said Neely. "It gives me a lot of confidence going into the AAU season. We went undefeated, and I just couldn’t have asked to have a better year."

For Neely he says he improved on a few key aspects of his game.

"I think I have improved with my leadership and my ability to get my teammates involved," said Neely.

Recruiting wise a few schools are really stepping up, and Neely says attention has increased.

"I just got offered by Oakland," noted Neely. "A while back I was offered by Northern Illinois, and I have schools like Toledo and the entire MAC looking at me."

No doubt while running with The Family in the EYBL, Neely will have a lot more eyes watching him, and he plans on making an impression.

"I am a point guard so I expect to lead the team to victories and success," noted Neely. "I am going to have great players around me, so I am just excited for the entire spring and summer."

At this point Neely is one to watch and will take a look at all of his options following the spring and summer.
