Bruce rammed through the 1,000 point mark in his last game of the season during the 2010-2011 boy's basketball campaign and averaged 19 points a game.

He is also very talented in the sport of football and has a more intense recruiting situation regarding this particular area.

Connecticut, Villanova, Akron and Georgia State have shown the most interest recently in the sport of football while low division one schools have monitored Bruce's basketball skills. Brittingham has already unofficially visited the campus of Connecticut for football.

WHAT HIS AAU BASKETBALL COACH MATT PAULS THINKS ABOUT BRUCE BRITTINGHAM'S ATHLETIC CAREER:

"Bruce is also an effective basketball player, landing some low division one looks. He works very hard. He is a tough competitor worker who improves each practice and game. He has the heart of a lion.

"Bruce competes much bigger than his size. He's on the glass a lot, battling for loose balls against the bigger bodies in the paint and scoring near the lip of the rim."
