Steve played with Matt Pauls' NJABC AAU basketball program. Matt is an outstanding coach and does a fine job in formulating his group of players into competing as a team. It's rare on the AAU level but he does a terrific job.
It helps to have a player like Rennard in making sure the team stays "a team" and not a group of individuals. Rennard, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound guard, is a tough player with a sweet stroke from the perimeter.
He's outstanding in the classroom too, opening up some attractive doors for him down the road when he graduates high school in two years. The Ivy League schools like his skill level and the way he thinks on the court.
When you possess a 4.0 grade point average, Rennard will have an attractive opportunity to choose a school that can benefit him academically and athletically. But, as he continues to progress in his individual game, he'll land other scholarship offers.
WHAT MATT PAULS THINKS OF HIS JUNIOR GUARD: "He is an excellent shooter, tremendous on the ball defender, and comfortably slides over to the lead guard position and does a nice job running the team. (Steve's) a true "guard" that just plays the game the right way."
Steve has already taken unofficial visits to Princeton and Penn.
