Troy Blair - Senior
Position - Wing
School - Ironwood Ridge
Troy Blair, 6-4 SR SF Tucson (Arizona) Ironwood Ridge, is about to catch everybody's eye in 2004-2005. With a solid 6-4 frame, long arms, good hops and a stroke from 3, he is about to burst out from the shadows of brother Jeff Blair and shooter deluxe Dylan Johnson, both who have moved on to Pima Community College in Tucson.
Blair will be asked to play every position this year for the Nighthawks. His ability to penetrate in traffic and nose for the ball around the glass makes him a force inside the paint. But with the skill to come of screens and hit the 3 make him tough to defend. Last year Blair dropped 10ppg.
A SF at the next level, Blair will no doubt be a top 2005 player not only in Tucson, but the entire State.
Although the Nighthawks will be down this year on paper, Blair will be given the chance to "breakout" and help lead Ironwood Ridge to a solid 05 season and be a top 4A team in SOAZ.
Look for more updates in this rising prospect as we head into the 40-05 season!
