WEIGHT: 214 Pounds

CLASS: 2010, a current sophomore

HIGH SCHOOL: Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood, New York

HIGH SCHOOL NICKNAME: Stanners

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Jack Curran

POSITION: Center/Power Forward

EARLY SCHOOLS OF INTEREST: Fairfield, St. John's, Rutgers, St. Francis of New York, Syracuse, Florida, Stony Brook, Hofstra, Penn State, and Connecticut

EVALUATION OF ASHTON PANKEY'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Hofstra head coach Tom Pecura was on hand last Friday night to watch Pankey compete on the Stanners' homecourt in Briarwood, New York against Long Island Lutheran. Pankey displayed a soft touch from the outside and is showing more confidence handling the ball around the rim.

PREVIOUS SCOUTING REPORT SUBMITTED BY MIKE SULLIVAN: He has long arms that enable him to tip balls to himself and grab rebounds against bigger players. He has three more full seasons to improve his consistency around the basket. And, by the time he becomes a senior, he will have more weight and muscle to his frame.

Pankey also exhibits agility too and seems to be a player that has some attractive upside to his game.
