Ryan McCoy, a foot-6, 180-pound junior forward prospect from Montgomery High School in New Jersey, said he is working hard on gaining strength and preparing himself to play division one college basketball starting next fall.

McCoy received some nice division one interest in his individual game because of his skills. He's always shown the ability to drop down the perimeter jumper. As he gains strength, he'll finish better and more consistently near the rim.

McCoy has given a commitment to play division one college basketball at Manhattan College in New York City and should be an impact player in the future.

"He's going to be a very good player for the program of Manhattan," said Pauls, who has seen several from his AAU program land division one scholarships.

Pauls has always been excited McCoy's individual game because of his high skill level and his ability to knock down perimeter shots.

He previously had recruiting interest from schools like New Hampshire, Wagner, Dartmouth, and Colorado State.

DESCRIPTION OF RYAN MCCOY'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

He possesses a nice skill set, able to knock down the perimeter shot. As he adds more weight and muscle to his frame, he'll be a more consistent offensive threat.
