Class of 2012 Brice Rowe Update

Class of 2012 guard Brice Rowe, who plays his high school ball with Madison Central High School in Madison, MS and his AAU ball with MBA Hoops, talks about his strengths as a player and his recruitment.

When asked what his strengths are, Brice stated that, "I think I can run the team well. I feel I can get my teammates in the right place. I feel I am a pretty good shooter. I'm not just an outside shooter, I can get to the basket if I need to or I can pull up and hit the mid-range or I can drive and dish to my teammates."

There are several areas of his game he is keying on improving.

"I still need to work on my mid-range game, taking more control of the team near the end of the game," said Brice.

MBA Hoops coach Omhar Carter, who has helped coach Brice for several years, is impressed with his overall skill level and talent.

"Brice Rowe is a 6-3 guard who is strong, solid, runs your team and gets everyone in the spots they need to be in," said Carter. "He is a big enough guard that he poses a problem for smaller guards and he shoots the three well enough so that he stretches the defense."

Although he can play either point or the two, Brice feels most comfortable at the point.

"I was born and raised a point guard and have the point guard mentality," said the 6-3, 165-pounder. "I feel comfortable with the ball in my hands and feel I can make things happen."

As for as recruiting is concerned, Brice is receiving some attention.

"I have received interest from Southeastern Louisiana, Arkansas and Middle Tennessee but I feel I have blossomed late," said Brice, who is just 15-years-old. "That's part of the reason I didn't start getting recruiting attention until near the end of my 9th grade summer. I was younger than everybody (in my class) and didn't start catching up until the end of my 9th grade year when I started getting taller and bigger, more athletic."

With the AAU summer tournament circuit about to be in full swing, Brice is hoping his recruitment will rev up.

"Right now, I just want my ability to show and then see who shows interest in me," said Brice. "I'll then narrow it down to the schools that are recruiting me."

When he does start narrowing it down, he has a great idea what he'll be looking for in a school.

"I'll look for an environment where I can feel like I'm at home and where I like the coaching staff," said Brice. "I'll also look at their offense - I like a pick and roll offense, a free type offense - how productive they are, how many productive people they put out, what type facility they have. ."
