Faust, ranked No. 91 for the time being by Scout.com, averaged 20 points on a state championship team at Baltimore City. His cousin, Willie Barton, was a Top 10 player in last year's senior class.
"Will is my cousin and I'm with him all the time," Faust said. "He's taught me a lot of stuff. He gets me better and teaches me little tricks of the game.
The biggest thing I picked up from him is to play hard and be consistent."
A standout in the classroom, Faust indicated four schools enter the summer in good shape for his fall signature. "The hardest is a tie between Penn State, Maryland, UNLV and Marquette. I'm taking a visit to Marquette and Maryland (this week)."
Virginia Tech is also pressing him to get involved. "The one I talk to the most is Coach Buzz but I also have a strong relationship with Coach Greenberg. I'll be visiting there soon."
Maybe Faust's breakout performance last week was something everyone should have seen coming. Despite struggling as a team in the spring, Baltimore Elite's Faust, has been on top of his personal game. His jump shot is a calling card but there have been times where the 6-foot-5 Faust demonstrated skills off the bounce. As the July period is upon us, coaches will be ever present in the stands marking him.
"I want to build a stronger relationship with the coaches even more and make sure I have that strong relationship."
