Hashim Bailey Makes A Contribution To Playaz

What is the future for Hashim Bailey, a 6-foot-10 center who plays for Jimmy Salmon's Playaz program

Hashim Bailey, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound center from Passaic County Tech in New Jersey, is an intriguing prospect. He has the wide frame and from time to time will get you excited about his individual game.

Bailey had a couple of big games this past weekend at the Sonny Hill tournament held on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. Bailey, at times, can dominate the glass. As he becomes more comfortable in finishing off his offensive rebounds, he could become a pretty good college prospect.

Bailey, according to a source close to his recruiting process, will likely need a year of prep school to get to the next level. As he works on his core courses and moves more efficiently in landing the standard academic requirements, it's likely the interest by schools in him will pick up.

Seton Hall, Rutgers, and Florida State have been mentioned by Bailey as being of interest to him. But for now, Bailey must first improve his classroom work. And as he does that, Hashim needs to convince college coaches he can be more consistent in his production on the court.
