Demetrius Mims shined night one of Slam Dunk to the Beach

LEWES, DE - Slam Dunk to the Beach featured some of the top teams in the country on Tuesday, and one of the top performers was class of 2018 wing Demetrius Mims.

Class of 2018 wing Demetrius Mims was impressive at the loaded Slam Dunk to the Beach event. Despite a loss for his team, Mims showed a refined offensive game, and looked the part of someone who will continue to add significant high-major attention.

“I’ve been trying to give it my all,” said Mims about the start to his season. “If I give it my all I am okay with whatever outcome I have. I have just been working on not turning the ball over and my jump shot.”

He continued about his play, “Also I am just trying to move better without the ball and finding new ways to score.”

On the recruiting trail Mims has a handful of offers, with several other schools showing him attention.

“I have offers from Robert Morris, St. John’s, VCU, Old Dominion, and Towson,” said Mims. “Also I have interest from Maryland, Dayton, Kansas State and a few others.”

So far this season Mims hasn’t been to any college games, and he plans to take his time with a decision, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school.

“I like colleges that are like a family,” said Mims. “I want to go to a place where everything is together and everyone is a family. It is all about that, because being a family is how you win in the game of basketball.”

Currently Mims is considered the No. 18 shooting guard in the class of 2018.
