Bullock Earns Two Early Offers

Expectations are high for the basketball class of 2010 in the state of North Carolina. Early on, perhaps no player's expectations are higher than 6'6, 185-pound Reggie Bullock out of Kinston High School.

The nation's top rated shooting guard in the class of 2010 as rated by Scout.com, Bullock has the size and talent to likely be able to play at most any school he wants at the next level.

"The offers are out there," said Kinston head coach Wells Gulledge who noted that Wake Forest and Indiana have both officially offered Bullock a scholarship. "The offers are out there. He's going to be a good player for someone and an even better person. You're not going to have to worry about anything out of the ordinary for Reggie Bullock."

Coaches are highly intrigued by the smooth 6'6 shooting guard. Bullock has had high major schools at most of his games this season including several ACC programs. Some high school sophomores would see this as an added pressure but the Kinston star is enjoying the process to date. "It's fun to have Roy Williams come and also Dino Gaudio at Wake Forest and Kelvin Sampson from Indiana," he noted.

Bullock currently lists Ohio State, Indiana, Maryland, [North Carolina,] and Wake Forest as his top five with two early offers and several schools talking about offering. "There has been talk through the grapevine about other schools [offering."] Gulledge said. "He's going to be a player. He's got soft touch. Very rarely do you see a kid with a mid-range floater that you can get over 6'10 or 6'11. That's something a lot of guys spend four years in college trying to develop, not getting too deep in the lane so you can get the shot off...that's something he was born with."

Bullock was also born with imposing size for a guard with his skill. Although 6'6 as a high school sophomore, doctors expect Bullock to grow taller in the next few years. "I want to be about 6'8, 6'9," said Bullock whose idol is Kevin Durant. "The doctor said I've got about two more inches but I hope three."

"Right now, he needs to put both hands on the shovel and really dig in the classroom," Kinston's head coach cotinued. "If he does those type of things and if he takes care of business in the classroom, he can pretty much decide where he wants to go to school for the next four years."
