Wing Kevin Easley says a few schools standout from the rest

Forward Kevin Easley has a long list of schools, but a few are beginning to standout with how they have recruited him.

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.
