Upstate Guard Having Solid Season

The best is yet to come for Rashon Tabb, a skilled 6-foot-1, 175-pound scoring guard from Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, New York. His AAU coach, Jeff Bishop, holds Tabb's offensive skills in high regard.

"He is coming along fine," Bishop said. "He has a couple more years to improve before he plays college ball. He's going to be fine."

Bishop, along with Ro Russell, utilize the players from the upstate New York region to compete at the most highly recognized AAU events. Tabb is one player that has made some contributions over the past year. It's expected he will play even more of a role this spring and summer.

Tabb was at one time playing two sports -- basketball and football. Bishop said Tabb has been focusing on basketball.

The Friars of Providence and Duquesne have expressed serious interest. Offers are on the table from both programs, according to Bishop. "He does have a good relationship with the coaches from Providence but he hasn't committed to any school," Bishop said.

Tabb previously mentioned interest also in Pittsburgh, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Penn State, Georgetown, and Syracuse. But how he plays this winter and next spring and summer will determine whether these schools decide to pursue him seriously.
