2008 Focus: Lashay Page

It's time to take a look at some members of the 2008 class that are intersted in the Demon Deacons and Lashay Page is definitely a prospect that falls under that category. The 6-1 PG spoke with DeaconSports about his recruitment.

Lashay Page, of Latta (SC) High, put together a solid summer playing for the South Carolina Ravens. The junior-to-be also took advantage of a Nike Camp invitation and played well in front of the top coaches in the country.

"At the beginning [the summer] was kind of slow but towards the end I feel like I picked it up a little bit at Nike Camp and at the Peach Jam," Page said. "We didn't get to play too much after that."

"It was pretty fun playing against the top players in the country," he said about Nike Camp. "I didn't know what to expect, but when you're up there you have to bring your game everyday. I think I played pretty good until I got hurt."

His play caught the eye of coaches from South Carolina, Clemson, Wake Forest, Florida, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Georgetown and Georgia. The Gamecocks, Tigers, Gators and Seminoles have even thrown offers his way.

Page, who said he's being recruited as a combo guard, is very interested in Wake Forest and he said they are attempting to get him to campus in the near future.

"[Wake Forest's] interest is pretty high, real high," Page said. "My interest in them is real good too."

"They were talking about me going up to Wake Forest sometime soon maybe next week or two weeks from now."

Page, who is being recruited by Pat Kelsey, said he has high interest in the Demon deacons because of their style of play. However South Carolina and Clemson are very much in the picture as well.

"I've been to South Carolina and Clemson. I liked it pretty good and they talk real good. I like them."

The 6-1, 170-pound PG said academics and style of play will play the biggest roll in his recruitment.

"I'm looking at the academics that's number one most importantly, but then their style of play and how their guards plays."
