Area Senior Prospect Has Some D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the individual game of Holy Cross High School senior prospect Evan Conti, who has had a solid season drawing some division one interest in his recruiting process ...

Evan Conti, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound small forward/shooting guard from Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York, is a valuable part of Paul Gilvary's boy's basketball program.

The reasons are is Evan does so many things well on the court. He is a leader, a senior who is counted on at both ends of the court. Currently, Conti is averaging almost 18 points a game and recording nearly 10 rebounds.

He is an unselfish player too, finding open teammates usually around five times a game for baskets.

RECRUITING INTEREST FOR EVAN CONTI:

Conti has an offer from the University of Hartford and interest from Kent State, New Hampshire, Fairfield, and Holy Cross College.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

An injury last season hurt Conti's chances of drawing more recruiting interest early in his recruiting process. "I had a lot more interest last year but I was out for three months in the AAU season with a broken ankle and a lot of those schools stopped recruiting me."

Evan plays AAU basketball for the Rising Stars under head coach Danny Gimple.
