Spears: Wide Open

It's going to be a tough battle for anyone to land the services of Shamari Spears, a big small forward from Blair Academy in New Jersey. Spears competed this past weekend for the New York Elite at the Playaz Spring Fling in New Jersey. Spears stated he was wide open in his recruiting process.

"Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Miami, Marquette, Georgia Tech, St. John's and Pittsburgh are some of the schools I am interested in," Spears said.

Several schools have been very active in letting Spears know they like his skills. But a recent report by reporter Dave Telep indicated Spears was leaning to Virginia Tech. "I am having schools come in to visit me," said Spears. "I hope to have them all come in in the next week."

Spears said he will either play for the New York Elite or the Playaz Basketball Club of New Jersey this summer. "I expect to be at the NIKE camp," Spears said.

Shamari said he is looking to improve a few parts of this game. "I want to improve my defense," Spears said. "I think if I can improve my quickness that will help my defense."
