It is never easy to really make a splash when playing up a level, but Ayala did that in a pair of games with talented guards. What he appeared to do best was make shots, but that isn’t all. Ayala showed game off the bounce, and had nice composure. While Ayala might have the highest ceiling in the world, his floor as a prospect is very high, and he is a solid player that coaches like to have in their program. He is the type of kid who you know what you will get, and also he has versatility on both ends of the floor. Recruiting wise Ayala is hearing from St. John’s, Cincinnati, Dayton, Miami, Providence, Connecticut, and Villanova. He noted that he took a recent visit to St. John’s.
