2016 Intro: Deshawn Corprew

Virginia Beach (VA) Cox High School freshman standout Deshawn Corprew could be one of the top prospects in the 2016 recruiting class, and he already holds an offer from NC State.

Deshawn Corprew might be one of the younger players participating on the 16-under circuit, but the rising sophomore is one if the best.

Corprew, who plays for one of Team Loaded's 16-under squads, is a dynamic playmaker capable of scoring in transition or the halfcourt but also creating for others.

"My game is simple," said Corprew. "I try to attack the hole more than I shoot. I try to penetrate and get open shots for my teammates because I'm not a great shooter right now.

"Growing up I've always had the ball in my hands."

His natural instincts and scoring ability are advanced for his age, but he knows that he has to continue to work on his game.

"I need to work on my jumpshot," he stated. "It's not consistent all the time. I have to keep working on it."

With that being said, when you factor in his 6-foot-5 and 180-pound frame, it's easy to see why he already holds multiple offers from ACC programs.

"I'm still young so my recruiting has just started," said Corprew. "But, I have offers from NC State and Virginia Tech. The others schools I'm hearing from right now are UVA, Wake Forest, and Villanova."

NC State has plucked several prospects out of the Team Loaded AAU program in recent years. Sophomore point guard Tyler Lewis is a Team Loaded alum, and current commitments Caleb Martin and Cody Martin play for Team Loaded's 17-under North Carolina team.

Wolfpack assistant Rob Moxley is handling Corprew's recruitment, and they were the first to offer him a scholarship.

"I just found out about the offer," said Corprew. "I really don't know much about them right now, outside of them being in the ACC."

Corprew added that he isn't even focused on recruiting and has only visited Virginia Tech so far.

"I'm not really thinking about it until my senior year," he stated. "By then I will have taken more visits and learned more about all the schools.

"Right now I'm just playing games... trying to get better."
