Senior Sleeper Dreshawn Vance
Dreshawn Vance, 6-7 SR PF Walnut (Calif.) High, didn't play much this past summer. When he did play, he was with a low-profile AAU program. As a result, Vance didn't get much exposure and wasn't seen by many people. A good athlete, with quick feet and a nice frame, Vance projects to being a solid mid major player. He's still a bit raw in terms of skills and he needs to play with a bit more urgency. But he's got nice hands and he's quick around the basket. We spoke with Vance last night and asked about the schools expressing interest in him. "Long Beach State, Fullerton, Irvine, Riverside, Azusa Pacific and UC Santa Barbara," said Vance. He told us that no school has emerged as a leader. Vance expressed a preference for staying in the west. He also said education would be one of his primary issues when choosing a school. He hasn't yet taken any visits to schools. Long Beach State and Fullerton have been out to practices recently at Walnut. Vance told us that he's not necessarily looking for early playing time. "I think redshirting would be good in my case -- I could get stronger and develop my skills." Vance plans on making his decision at the conclusion of this season. He told us that he has a 3.2 GPA and he'll take the SAT in April.
