Four-star point guard Elijah Weaver is one of the key cogs for Team Breakdown. Weaver has the requisite size, athleticism, and skill to be a high level player in college. With that coaches tracked his every move in April, and Weaver is looking to take some visits before narrowing down his list.
Weaver is putting up big numbers this spring for Team Breakdown. He is averaging 13.8 points and 3.6 rebounds per game while also being one of the top assist men in the Under Armour Association.
Still Weaver is working to refine his game, "I have been working hard on my mid-range game and being a better leader. Also the little things like blocking out and stuff like that," said Weaver.
On the recruiting trail a lot of schools have been tracking him.
He continued, "I would like to plan visits soon to Virginia and Butler for sure. Also I’d like to get to Florida, UCLA, USC, and a few other schools."
When asked about Virginia, Weaver said, "I like the way they play. It is slow and they pick their spots and they are all about execution. Also I like the coaches. Tony Bennett is a cool guy."
About the Butler Bulldogs, he added, "Coach (Chris) Holtmann is a cool guy. I am real cool with Coach Mike (Schrage). They tell me that they would give me the ball right away, and that I could make an immediate impact and have the ball in my hands."
Another school he wants to visit is UCLA, and the Bruins style of play is one of the major things appealing to Weaver.
"They say they’d give me the ball right away," said Weaver of UCLA. "It is an up-tempo style, so I like the coaching style, and they have produced great players like Lonzo Ball."
One school that Weaver has already visited is Villanova, and Weaver has a strong relationship with the Wildcats coaching staff.
"They like the way I play," said Weaver of Villanova. "I have a great relationship with Jay Wright. I like how they play and I really like the school."
While Weaver still wants to make several visits, he doesn't want this process to drag out too long.
"I’d probably like to decide sooner than later," said Weaver. "I want to see some more schools before cutting my list down, and go from there."
