A 6-foot-1 guard, Weatherspoon is an impressive all-around athlete. Blessed with an extra gear and an exceptional first step, he found ways to get to the paint and finish off plays at the rim. In all, Weatherspoon finished 6-for-9 from the field and scored 16 points. Weatherspoon is more of a combination guard than a true point, but he does have good vision. Perhaps his most impressive play of the day was when he broke down a defender, drew the help man over and dropped off a nice pass to a cutting Mario Kegler. Weatherspoon recorded five assists in the win. Weatherspoon is clearly an impressive talent on the offensive end of the floor, but he projects as a terrific on the ball defender because of his lateral quickness, athleticism and length. According to MBA Hoops coach Omhar Carter, Weatherspoon currently holds offers from LSU, Connecticut, Mississippi State, Mississippi, Memphis and Ohio State.
