Spotlight on 2011 prospect Everett Pleasant

Everett Pleasant's stock is rising fast and after a good showing at this weekends Elite Camp, Texas A&M is starting to show interest in the 2011 prospect. Aggie Websider's Taylor Hamm caught up with the Atascocita sophomore.

Everett Pleasant is a 6'8 shooting guard out of Atascocita High School and best friends with 2011 Texas A&M commit Jamal Branch. Together they could be a huge force for Mark Turgeon and his visit to A&M's Elite Camp did wonders for his recruiting status.

"I played real good. I thought the experience was great and I really like Coach Turgeon."

Like most people, Pleasant came away impressed with the new Cox-McFerrin Center.

"Texas A&M has the best facilities in the country."

Currently Pleasant has no offers on the table but his top schools include UConn, Texas A&M, and Texas. He intends to keep working hard and attend as many camps as he can to gain as much exposure as possible.

"Me and Jamal workout every other day at 4AM in the morning. We lift weights for two hours and shoot for one. He is trying to get me to come to A&M with him, its starting to work."

Everett wants to keep his options open because he also plays football and is very good on the grid iron. He is looking to play in a run and gun offense that best suits his style of play. Everett had good things to say about Coach "Pooh" Williamson and Spinelli. Pleasant has been in contact with Coach Turgeon and expect the Aggies to keep a close eye on his progress in the future.
