Sophomore Forward Already Has D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan highlights the individual basketball game of forward Ryan McCoy, a 2011 prospect who is already landing some division one interest in his skill level ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound forward from Montgomery High School in the state of New Jersey, is already landing some interest from division one basketball programs, according to NJABC AAU head coach Matt Pauls.

"He's emerging as one of the better players in the area from his class," said Pauls. "He can play the wing position and being 6-foot-6 this is attractive for division one coaches and programs."

Pauls mentioned that McCoy does a solid job knocking down the perimeter shot, despite his size. "He is one of the best pure shooters in the 2011 class (New Jersey)," said Pauls.

Considered a wing forward, McCoy has three full high school seasons to polish his individual game. "He's a hard worker so he'll improve every year," said Pauls.

If Ryan continues to grow and add some muscle to his frame, he's likely to land many division one offers. He's also a very good student, opening up more doors of opportunity.

Cornell, Robert Morris, and Davidson have already inquired about McCoy's individual game. So it's likely at least these three schools will monitor his success this season.

"Obviously, he's open," said Pauls. "But I'm anxious to see how his game develops over the next couple of years."
