Upstate Guard Has Big East Offer

Scout.com's East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan has the latest information on talented guard Rashon Tabb ...

GC Ballers' head coach Jeff Bishop will lose plenty of talent next season when several of his players (Johnny Flynn, Tyrell Lynch, etc) go play high division one basketball. However, there is still some solid talent on his squad for next spring.

Bishop will likely have to rely upon the offensive skills of Rashon Tabb, a skilled 6-foot-1, 175-pound scoring guard from Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, New York. Bishop, along with Ro Russell, will at times combine the squads to compete at events. But Tabb is a player likely to be an impact threat for them.

"He decided to quit football and concentrate on basketball," Bishop said. "This is a positive. He was a wide receiver in football but played for a team that mainly ran the ball. But he is a very good basketball player."

Bishop said there is a Big East offer on the table. "Providence likes him a lot," Bishop said. "They have offered him."

Rashon had some big games for the GC Ballers this past summer, especially at Jimmy Salmon's Playaz Ball, an event held in mid-July at Basketball City in Manhattan. He ran up a few games of 20 plus and 30 plus points.

Tabb is open. But if he wished, he could make a commitment to Providence. He is also hearing from Duquesne too. He previously mentioned interest in Pittsburgh, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Penn State, Georgetown, and Syracuse.
