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: Despite Christ the King's loss in the CHSAA final to Holy Cross High School, the Royals had a terrific season under head coach Bob Oliva.
Ryan Pearson was one of the main reasons why CTK had a tremendous season. And because of his great year, Pearson was selected to play in the regional game of the Michael Jordan Classic, to be held at Madison Square Garden next month.
MIKE SULLIVAN'S THOUGHTS ON RYAN PEARSON'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: 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.
