Middle Was Lone Official Visit
Alex Weekes averaged 11 points and rebounds for a very good Berkmar High School team last year. Weekes has seen plenty of players come in the Berkmar program and leave as Division I players in the past three years. Now, it's his time.
"I don't really miss them," Weekes said. "I miss them as my friends but we'll be better than we are last year. We have a potential DI starting five and someone off the bench is going to be a DI player. We have people in the 10th grade that are playing well." Translation, Berkmar is loaded.
The Patriots will have a new coach as David Boyd, the man who skippered them to back-to-back state titles two years ago, retired for personal reasons. In his place is Ken Martin who took over this month.
Meanwhile, Weekes is sifting through the recruiting process. He took an official visit to Middle Tennessee State. Appalachian State and Alabama State are on him. "That's pretty much the schools that have been recruiting me the most," Weekes said.
"I think that if I play my season out and not sign early I'll probably get bigger schools on me. I'm not sure if I want to do that."
Weekes does have a few requirements. "I just want somewhere where my mom can see me play and a place with good academics. Other than that it doesn't really matter."
