Prep Showcase: Georgia native Teshaun Hightower raises stock

2017 recruit Teshaun Hightower picked a good weekend to play well, as he raised his stock at the National Prep Showcase.

College coaches are searching for available guard options and this past weekend at the National Prep Showcase there were a host of schools looking to evaluating 6-foot-6 Teshaun Hightower.

Hightower, a combo guard that has grown to 6-foot-6, impressed with his quickness, athleticism and playmaking ability. Hightower, of Mount Zion Prep, made plays with the ball in his hands, slashed to the basketball and also impacted the game with his defense.

In his first game of the event, Hightower went 6-for-11 from the field, scoring 15 points and tossing out three assists. His production escalated in his second outing, as he scored 22 points and reeled in 10 boards in a loss to Brewster.

With a shortage of guard options and Hightower’s strong showing, he’s certainly a player that improved his profile at the event.
