JUCO Guard Prospect Worth Watching

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed look at the individual game and future of a New York born guard prospect who competed effectively on the JUCO level this past season ...

Danny Lawhorn, a 6-foot-1 guard from New York City, played during the 2011-2012 basketball season with San Jaciento JC in Texas. Danny produced 10 points and 11 assists, leading the nation in assists on the JUCO level.

He is a member of the class of 2013 and previously competed at the Robinson School in New Jersey a year ago as a post graduate player.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Danny has been gaining confidence handling the lead guard slot for his team and is shooting the ball better from the perimeter.

Lawhorn should have a solid career as a division one backcourt player. "My jump shot is better, more consistent and I'm more confident."

Danny has also been working on his strength so he can finish near the rim more consistently against the bigger bodies inside the paint.

DANNY LAWHORN'S SEASON AT THE ROBINSON SCHOOL:

Danny produced 18 points, contributed 12 assists and four steals to help the Robinson School defeat Rise Academy of Pennsylvania, 102-72 in a key game this season.

EVALUATION OF DANNY LAWHORN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

*Lawhorn is a tough guard, willing to take the ball to the rim against the bigger bodies. He competes hard on both ends of the court. He has the New York attitude, fearless when it comes to taking the rock to the basket.

Lawhorn has competed at many events as a high school player, including tournaments held at Fordham and in the IS8 Fall and Spring Leagues.
