Profile Update: St. Mary's 2008 Prospect

Reporter Mike Sullivan gives us a profile update on Scott Machado ...

PROFILE: Scott Machado

HEIGHT: 6-foot-1

POSITION: Point Guard

HIGH SCHOOL: St. Mary's High School in Manhasset, New York (Long Island)HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Robert Jones

CLASS: 2008, A Junior

WHAT HIS HIGH SCHOOL COACH ROBERT JONES IS SAYING ABOUT SCOTT MACHADO'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: "He has a college ready body. He's unstoppable on the drive to the hoop and off the dribble."

SCHOOLS OF INTEREST IN HIS RECRUITING PROCESS: Rutgers, Clemson, UAB, Navy, Towson, Elon, Yale, Cornell, and Hofstra.

CONCLUSION: Scott will need to have a big spring and summer to attract high division one interest. It's likely mid to lows will take a look at the upcoming AAU events. Machado plays with a highly competitive program and faces a tough schedule so this should help garner some recruiting interest.

Machado needs to show he has the ability to drive past his defender and distribute. In other words, think more like a point guard when directing an offense.
