NY2LA: Nick Weatherspoon

MEQUON, WI - MBA Hoops got a big win on Wednesday night and Nick Weatherspoon was a huge reason why.

Last year at this time it was Quinndary Weatherspoon that was breaking out as a member of the 2015 class, and now his younger brother Nick Weatherspoon is making that same jump. As a member of the 2017 class the younger Weatherspoon has time on his side, but already he is pretty good.

Weatherspoon is about 6-foot-1 with elite quickness and athleticism, and a nice looking shooting stroke. He got into the paint almost at will on Wednesday night and that led to a lot of open shot opportunities and offensive rebounds when he broke down the defense.

Weatherspoon needs to get a bit more efficient as a shooter, but his quickness and tight handle allows him to create opportunities for himself without much problem. Right now he is definitely at his best as a scorer, but he does show some potential as a point guard because of the pressure he can put on a defense with his quickness and ball handling ability.

On the recruiting side of things Weatherspoon claims offers from LSU, Connecticut, Miami, and Florida State.
