WA Guard Proves Himself

One of the players who has improved his stock the most from the west this July has been <b>Rod Stuckey</b> from Washington. He is a high-major player that is still somewhat of a secret outside of the Northwest...

Rod Stuckey, 6-3 SR SG, Kent (Wash.) Kentwood, is among the players in the west who has really improved his stock so far this summer.

While he might lack a consistent jump shot, Stuckey is very athletic, active, quick and an excellent defender.

Stuckey, actually, though, could be limited by his academics. Sources indicate that it will there is a question whether Stuckey will qualify academically to play as a freshman in college, even though he claims he has a 3.0 GPA (and intends to take the SAT for the first time this fall).

Stuckey said he's hearing from Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and Eastern Washington the most. "Eastern Washington is recruiting me the hardest," Stuckey said. "But I don't have a favorite right now."

According to Stuckey, Washington, WSU and Eastern Washington have all offered him a scholarship.
