Class of 2018 wing Kevin Easley Jr. has long been talked about as one of the top players in his class in the state of Indiana. The 6-foot-5 Easley is having a solid sophomore season, and says he is working hard to improve his all-around game.
“It is going well, but it is a challenge,” said Easley of improving his skill set. “With the team we have, we are so stacked, I can’t show off my game like some other players can. Things are going well though.”
He continued, “I think I have improved on my ability to handle the ball and also getting my teammates open shots, and just being more of a guard.”
Recruiting wise schools like Indiana, Purdue, Xavier, and many others have offered, though Easley says two other schools have really picked things up recently.
“Maryland has been in touch a lot, Cincinnati a lot of well, and there have been a lot of schools,” said Easley.
Maryland had an assistant coach present for Easley’s most recent game, and he is looking forward to learning more about the Terrapins.
“I don’t now a ton about Maryland, but I talk to them almost every day and I want to learn more,” said Easley.
When asked about Cincinnati, Easley said, “They like me a lot. They come to practice a lot and they have a lot of interest in me.”
While Easley says he is in absolutely no hurry to make a decision, and he doesn’t plan on making other visits until after the school season, he does admit that he is very intrigued by a pair of schools.
“I like Maryland a lot and also Kansas,” said Easley.
