PG has good weekend at Boo Williams
Gamecocks Chasing Downey
The South Carolina Ravens captured the Bronze championship at last weekend's Boo Williams Invitational. Dion Bethea's bunch was lead by a spirited point guard name Devan Downey.
"I think we just competed hard," said Ravens point guard Devan Downey. "I think we just did it."
A big reason why they "did it" was because Downey took them there. The guard admitted to being 5-9 and we generously list him at 5-10 (without his even asking) but sometimes size can be a little overrated.
Downey knows that his size is a major hurdle for the high major programs who seek big guards. "I got to prove that I can guard the big guards. I know I have to work on my defense. College coaches look at a small guard like me and know I have to guard those guys."
On the flipside, they have to guard him too on the other end. Downey averaged 27 points a game for Chester (SC) High. He took his team to the state finals where it fell to J.L. Mann.
As far as colleges go, people are starting to notice.
Downey said Dave Odom's Gamecocks are recruiting him harder than anyone else.
"They've offered me. They did that in the middle of the high school season.
"I really don't have no leader. I'm just looking at more schools to pick the one I want to go."
