Rajon Rondo Shows Improvement

Rajon Rondo is playing well at Oak Hill Academy and ITV has the scoop.

Rajon Rondo is playing for a talented Oak Hill team and is averaging 22 points per game early in the season.

Oak Hill head coach Steve Smith says the former Eastern High School performer is the glue to the team and has improved his penetration skills since coming to the Virginia prep basketball factory.

In the past, Rondo would sometimes penetrate to deep into the lane, cutting off his passing angles and commiting unforced turnovers.

However, despite still making some of those same mistakes in practice, Smith indicated that's he's eliminated them when the game clock starts.

"He's scoring alot," Smith said. "But he's not taking a lot of shots and he's getting to the line 8-10 times per game."

Rondo, who plays on the front of the Oak Hill press with 6'8 Josh Smith (Indiana) and 6'6 Dashawn Wright (Syracuse), is a key reason why the Warriors press has been such an effective weapon early this season. The Warriors are forcing 20-25 turnover a night.

Smith said that Rondo won't sign a letter of intent during the early signing period and door remains open for potential suitors next spring.
