Ebanks Has New List

Reporter Brian Towey had a chance to talk to one of the more talented players in the 2008 class in Devin Ebanks. Towey discusses Ebank's new list of schools as well as Devin's individual game which has evolved over the past two seasons ...

As a reclassified member of the class of 2008, Devin Ebanks is winding the recruiting calendar back. That hasn't stopped coaches from piling on the interest, as the smooth 6-foot-7 forward continues to attract admirers.

"I have a couple of new schools: Maryland, Purdue, NC State popped up recently," said Ebanks. "The other schools that were already recruiting me were UConn, St. John's, Rutgers, Louisville- mostly Big East and SEC schools."

The college interest will be there. A higher priority for Ebanks has been his performance in the classroom, and achieving some stability on that end.

"Right now, I'm focusing on getting my grades better and playing better basketball," said Ebanks.

Devin was asked to leave Bishop Loughlin this winter, surfacing at the Patterson School in North Carolina after spring break. The move seems to be working for him at this early juncture.

"I love it there," said Ebanks. "The people are real nice. I love the atmosphere. The teachers are great. It's a great situation for me, not a good one."

Ebanks has been visible on the AAU circuit with the Metro Hawks, most recently at the Main Event in Las Vegas. He copped underclassman MVP honors at the ABCD camp earlier in the month.

Ebanks is exceptionally agile for a player with such a lengthy, elongated frame. He wields a strong feel for the game with good vision, deceptive change of pace, and court savvy, as well as a nose for the ball.
