PROFILE: Malachi Peay

HIGH SCHOOL: Campus Magnet in Queens, New York

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Chuck Granby

HIGH SCHOOL ASSISTANT COACH: Herman Turner

HEIGHT: 6-foot-5

POSITION: Swingman

CLASS: Senior, class of 2007

BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW: Malachi is a physically impressive player and a good athlete who excels at getting to the line. He's a slashing/get in the gaps type who takes it strong to the rim, can absorb contact off of the drive, and get out and run the break.

Peay can defend multiple positions on the floor. If he can cut down on mental mistakes and add polish, it will enhance his stock. Malachi is a scholarship-level athlete.

WHAT CHUCK GRANBY IS SAYING: He does everything well. He can play the one, two, three, or the four- almost any position on the floor.

COLLEGES INTERESTED IN PEAY:Dartmouth, Columbia, and St. Francis of New York

IMPORTANT STATS: Peay averaged 19.2 points and 7.2 rebounds as a junior.

A THOUGHT FROM MIKE SULLIVAN: *Could he walk-on at St. John's?
