Roanoke Catholic's Other Standout

Roanoke Catholic shooting guard Matt Nowlin, a junior, should receive his share of mid-major recruiting attention as the spring AAU season progresses.

Nowlin Can Stroke It

Dick Wall has a pretty good nucleus with JR Reynolds (Virginia) and Matt Nowlin returning next season. Reynolds picked Virginia early and because of it, fewer people have come to watch Roanoke Catholic, thus limiting Nowlin's exposure.

"I think a lot of people saw him early when he was a sophomore and he tended to be a little erratic and they didn't see him this year when he was not," Wall said. "He's very athletic."

And, he can shoot it.

The 6-3 Nowlin is hearing from schools in the Big South, Southern Conference and CAA. In particular, Elon and Wilmington have been in touch. Nowlin's parents went to Elon so there's a natural connection there.
