Days Makes Improvements; Picks Up Offers

Rod Days has turned himself into a good-looking prospect and college coaches are taking notice. The 6-foot-6 wing already has a handful of scholarship offers.

Fab Melo is the center of attention right now at Weston (Fla.) Sagemont, but Adam Ross' program has a few other promising prospects. Among that group is 2011 standout Rod Days.

According to Ross, Days, a 6-foot-6, 175-pound small forward, has made strides over the past few years and is developing himself into a potential high major prospect.

"Rod is a long, explosive wing guy," Ross said. "He's 6-6 and he's got a 6-10 wingspan and has incredibly long arms. He's come a long way. We've had him here since he was in middle school and he's just now starting to fill out physically."

"He's really developing a complete game," he added. "He's become a much better jump shooter and a much better ball handler and those are two things that he really need to get better, but he's come along way."

This spring Days has spent time playing with Tom Topping's Nike Team Florida. The versatile forward was especially impressive at Boo Williams, where he showed an ability to attack from the perimeter as well as a good-looking jumper.

Recruiting wise, Ross said Days has benefited from having Melo and fellow sophomore standout Richard Peters.

"Anytime you can get head coaches like that, what winds up happening is those guys fall in love with the other two or they call someone that they know fits the kids style," he said.

Already Days claims three firm scholarship offers from South Carolina, Florida State and Miami.

"Those are the three offers that he has," Ross said. "He's going to go see all three. He's been to Miami and he's going to go see Florida State and South Carolina in the month of May as well."

"Then there are a whole group of other schools that have sent assistants out here that really like him," he continued. "The head coaches will see him in July."

Stanford, Louisville and UAB are three other schools that have made an impact on his recruitment. Days made a trip to Louisville during the season.

"I think he's probably still a year away from making a decision," Ross said. "Something would have to really happen or the perfect situation that he couldn't say no to would have to come about."
