Bullock Begins to Emerge

For Rayjay Bullock the start to his sophomore season has been impressive. The forward is putting up big numbers and doing a good job of leading his team despite his youth. A pair of ACC schools have already taken note.

There is never a shortage of talent in the Tidewater Region of Virginia. The area always produces high level talent, and a player emerging out of there in the 2013 class is Rayjay Bullock. The combo forward is beginning to pick up his game and is making big strides on the floor.

Things at Kecoughtan (Va.) High School have been good so far this season. The team is off to a strong start and Bullock is a big reason why. In a recent win over Phoebus (Va.), Bullock poured in 31 points and really put his team on his back.

"It is going good," said Bullock of his season. "We took our first loss, but other than that we are playing pretty well as a team."

One of the reasons for Bullock's big numbers so far this season is the hard work he put in with his high school coach in the pre-season. Now that is beginning to pay off, and he has a more well rounded game.

"I have been working out like every day with my high school coach on my post moves and stuff and that has made a big difference," explained Bullock.

With that improvement a pair of high-major schools are showing Bullock interest on the recruiting trail.

"The Virginia Tech coaches are on my pretty hard and then Miami is sending me letters," explained Bullock. "Virginia Tech has been the school showing me the most interest."

While it is still early, Bullock does have some idea of what he will be looking for in a school when the time does come to make his decision.

"I want to play at a school that plays up-tempo and likes to run," said Bullock. "Also I want to play at a school with a lot of fans and that always has a big crowd."

At 6-foot-7 and 210 pounds, Bullock feels that his versatility will attract significant recruiting attention and allow his game to adapt in whatever system he chooses.

"I shoot the three ball well for my height, I have a good back to the basket post game, and I am real long on the defensive end so I can change shots," said Bullock. "Also I think I can guard a bunch of different positions."

For now Bullock is just looking to improve and get better, and as that happens the class of 2013 standout should see more recruiting attention come his way.
