WHAT BRIAN TOWEY SAYS ABOUT RYAN PEARSON: The best way to describe the rangy southpaw right now is as a face-up four-man with a smooth delivery.

He strokes it to mid-range, which is his comfort zone, but can also knock down shots to the arc. He has a solid feel for the game, sees the floor, and possesses some court savvy.

WHAT MIKE SULLIVAN SAYS ABOUT RYAN PEARSON: Ryan is a player who has unlimited skills in scoring. He has an uncanny ability to slide between defenders for baskets inside the paint. He is becoming more consistent too with his offensive game. And someday he will make a division one school happy when he signs his letter of intent.

RECRUITING PROCESS: Pearson is a player that division one programs will likely look more seriously at during the spring and summer AAU sesssions. Ryan has a knack for scoring around the basket on drives. He seems hard to contain at times because his moves are so different each time he handles the rock.

Ryan previously mentioned interest in St. John's. But if he has a great spring and summer, expect more area schools to express interest.
