Malik Riddle

Malik Riddle is among the springs breakout players

The April Evaluation periods are a great opportunity for potential collegiate prospects to raise their stock and Rossville Christian Academy standout Malik Riddle did just that.

2018 guard Malik Riddle was among the breakout performers in the adidas Gauntlet during the two April Evaluation periods.

Playing for M33M Elite, Riddle, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard, is averaging 13.3 points and 4.4 rebounds through seven games on the Gauntlet circuit.

“I’ve been playing pretty hard, been attacking the goal more, I shoot a lot,” Riddle told Scout. “Just trying to get after it. I play all over, just trying to help my team.”

Riddle, who is shooting 40-percent from three on 25 attempts, said he’s at his best when he’s clicking on both ends of the floor.

“I’m shooting and playing a lot of defense, mostly when I play a lot of defense,” Riddle said. “When I feel I’m at my best my offense is flowing with that.”

When a prospect plays well during the live period, college attention usually follows. According to M33M Elite coach Ernie Kuyper, Dayton, TCU, Long Island, Tennessee State, Austin Peay, Arkansas State and Creighton have reached out.

Riddle said Lipscomb, Dayton and East Tennessee State are the three schools that have prioritized him thus far.

The Rossville (Tennessee) Christian Academy standout said he’s yet to set up or take any college visits.
