One of the top passers in California in the 2017 class comes from Manteca High School in Tydus Verhoeven.
The 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward is best from the high post, where his high level vision helps him find cutters for easy baskets.
“I look to be a playmaker,” Verhoeven said. “My size is an advantage of mine and I make plays for myself and my team. I can pass and play point forward.
“I’ve really improved my shooting and want to get better at everything. I want to be able to play point guard and the one through five.
Weber State: “You can get a good education there. It’s a really good mid-major school.”
Nevada: “Basically my brother is going there (Kenny Wooten) and all those coaches up there are great. It’s a beautiful campus.”
Fresno State: “My mom and one of my cousins went there. It’s a good school. It would be a fun place to play.”
Verhoeven is looking for a college that can feature his versatility.
“I want a team that can spread it out and take advantage of my point guard abilities,” he said. “I also want a good campus and education.”
