PLAYER PROFILE UPDATE: Ashton Pankey

HEIGHT: 6-foot-8

WEIGHT: 212 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: The list is extensive now since Pankey has thrived this season. These are the schools in early on the talented big man -- Rutgers, Georgia Tech, Seton Hall, St. John's, Connecticut, Syracuse, Stony Brook, Fairfield, Pittsburgh, St. Francis of New York, Florida, Hofstra, and Penn State

EVALUATION OF ASHTON PANKEY'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Pankey has had a solid year in his first season of extensive minutes for Jack Curran's Molloy program.

His wingspan is impressive, leading to many of Ashton's blocks.

He is agile too. When he is confident with the ball in the low post, Ashton is worthy of high division one looks.

The best is yet to come for Pankey. The Stanners like to play at a high pace of speed and this is just fine with this solid athlete.
