Former Brooklyn Guard Garners Early Interest

Scout.com East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan profiles a guard who comes from Brooklyn but will play in New Jersey this season ...

During the course of this past week's game against the Shooting Stars, New York Panthers head coach Gary Charles made the decision to move Lamont Jones over to the shooting guard position to take advantage of the Rice guard's offensive skills.

It worked. Jones erupted for 38 points.

But an important part of this process was the paly of Dwan McMillan, who hails from Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, New York. McMillan will compete this season for Danny Hurley at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey.

"Dwan has a lot of talent," Charles said. "He can get to the basket and score. And he can find his teammates with his passes."

McMillan scored 19 points and had six assists. He also drained a couple of jumpers to keep his defender honest. "He is very aggressive," Charles said.

A member of the 2008 class, McMillan has some time to polish his individual game. But he has some interest from schools already.

"Seton Hall and Rhode Island have shown some interest," Charles said. "Dwan's open. He just has to continue to work hard and the schools will recruit him."

McMillan has plenty of time to work on his game. He will continue to play for Charles' Panthers program at IS8 on weekends.
