Canarsie Guard Worth Watching This Season

In this free story, Mike Sullivan has his thoughts on game of Brian Cummings ...

Over the next few weeks, this website will spotlight some of the top players from the New York City area. Tonight we take a look at the individual game of Brian Cummings, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound combo guard from Canarsie High School in Brooklyn, New York.

Canarsie High School has featured some solid division one talent over the past few years. And Cummings, a senior prospect who played in the Fall IS8 Leauge for Game Over, has always impressed the reporters on this website with his game. Over the past year, reporters Mike Sullivan, Brian Towey, and Frank Mantesta have watched Cummings compete on the hardwood.

LIU, Hofstra, Princeton, and Holy Cross had been mentioned by Cummings as being schools of interest. But how he competes this winter will likely determine the level of interest in his skills.

Below are some thoughts from the reporters of this website on Brian Cumming's individual game:

STRENGTHS: He can shoot the ball effectively from the perimteter. And he can score by taking his man with his handle too. These two aspects have improved over the past year giving Brian a chance to be a consistent scorer.

AREA TO IMPROVE: If Brian is to be a complete player on the college level, he needs to adjust his thought process when running the show offensively. There are times when Cummings needs to distribute the basketball more and get his teammates involved in the offense.
