Q&A with No. 38 Elijah Weaver

ATLANTA -- What's the latest on 2018 guard Elijah Weaver? After his strong showing at the Holiday Hoopsgiving event over the weekend, Elijah Weaver went one-on-one with Scout to discuss the latest in his game and recruitment.

Evan Daniels: You seems to play at such a pretty good pace, where does that come from?

Elijah Weaver: Just making sure I control the game, making sure I don’t get out of control, making sure that I don’t get off beat, just to control the game and make sure nothing gets out of control.

It appears you have a pretty good feel of when to distribute, when to score, is this something that you worked on?
Yeah, right, when to make the right pass and when to score being selfish because at first I was being a little too passive, I wasn’t getting my own points, so when I figured it out I kind of know when to make the right passes.
