FRANK MANTESTA'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF RYAN PEARSON'S GAME: Ryan's strengths are his mid-range game. He is a great passer. He has good handle for his size and good rotation on shot.
The areas he needs to improve is he could add some more strength to his game which would help him to score more consistently around the basket.
LATEST ON RYAN PEARSON'S SEASON: With hsnewyork.scout.com reporter Frank Mantesta in the stands last night, Pearson continued to demonstrate that he will be an impact player on the division one level.
Pearson scored a game-high 33 points and pulled down 19 rebounds to help the Royals defeat a very talented team in St. Raymond's High School in the CHSAA quarterfinals.
Ryan's performance has helped Christ The King into the semifinals for a game against Doron Lamb and Bishop Loughlin at St. John's University next Wednesday evening. This website will have reports from the playoff round.
Ryan has always been an agile player, being able to use both sides of the rim on his drives to the basket. He has shown that he can rebound too among the bigger bodies. George Mason has always done a great job in finding talent and then helping improve it. Pearson should benefit well playing at George Mason.
