Washington D.C. 2018 SF Saddiq Bey has breakout performance at UA Association

NEW YORK - Saddiq Bey used the Under Armour Association platform this weekend to put his name on the national map, while he already has a handful of successful programs chasing him.

One of this weekend’s breakout performers at the UnderArmour Association was D.C. Premier’s Saddiq Bey.

The 6-foot-7, 195-pound 2018 small forward from Washington D.C. Sidwell Friends School has good size for a wing, long arms, is a capable jump shooter, plays hard, rebounds and defends.

“I’m a playmaker, scorer, rebounder and versatile,” Bey said. “Whatever the coach asks me to do, I’ll do it.

“I’m working on everything. Conditioning, strength, my mechanics and I just want to keep getting better at everything.”

Recruiting has picked up for Bey recently, as he recently added to Penn and Towson offers with Notre Dame, Rhode Island and Temple.

The emerging prospect broke down the latter three offers.

Notre Dame: “I’ve been following them since I was a little kid. I know it’s a great program and I love coach (Mike) Brey; he’s from the area I’m in. I’m really excited, I just found out they offered me a day or two ago.”

Rhode Island: “Coach (David) Cox is the one recruiting me. I know a lot about them and followed them throughout the tournament.”

Temple: “I visited them last Friday and it was remarkable. It was a really good experience.”

There’s no leader for Bey at this point but he knows what he’s looking for in a school.

“I’m open to anything right now,” he said. “I’m trying to embrace the process and I’m open to anybody. I’m looking for academics, a winning mentality, somewhere I can help me get better as a player.”
