Upstate Guard Can Score

Finding guards that can shoot and score are at a premium on the high school/prep level. Scout.com reporter Mike Sullivan of the High School New York/New Jersey website profiles one particular player that had a good summer ...

Rashon Tabb has a couple of years to improve his individual game. The 2008 class member also benefits from playing with two terrific AAU programs in the Ro Russell's Grassroots Canada AAU team and Jeff Bishop's GC Ballers.

Tabb, a skilled 6-foot-1, 175-pound scoring guard from Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, New York, has also been part of one terrific basketball program near the Canadian border.

Tabb's great summer opened some coaching eyes, even some from the Big East Conference. Providence College has been one school that has shown Tabb love after the summer was over.

Many coaches and programs decided to recruit Rashon after his exceptional play during the July evaluation period. His ability to score was on display especially at Jimmy Salmon's Playaz Ball, an event held in mid-July at Basketball City in Manhattan. He posted some games of 20 plus and 30 plus points, helping himself to gather more recruiting interest.

According to Jeff Bishop, Rashon is open in his recruiting process but has interest from Duquesne, Pittsburgh, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Providence, Penn State, Georgetown, and Syracuse.
