Back when we last laid eyes on him in the summer, Stores was an athletic 6-foot-8 and no more than 195 pounds. Now, according to Christian Center Academy coach Travis McAvene, he's shot up.
"There's no 6-foot-8 about him, he's every bit of 6-10," McAvene said. The coach also said he's about 218 pounds right now.
Apparently, once word got out where Stores had settled in at, his recruitment took another step forward. Plus, according to McAvene, he's averaging 24 points and double-digit rebounds.
The Aggies could easily wind up experiencing some good news in the next few days. "I think he'll verbal over the weekend at New Mexico State unless something changes," McAvene said.
"They've flown in here twice in the last 10 days," McAvene said.
