Reporter Mike Sullivan has an update on Long Island basketball prospect Josh Malone, a guard/small forward from Deer Park High School in Deer Park, New York ...

Josh Malone, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard/small forward from Deer Park High School in Deer Park, N.Y., is a player who is versatile and is attracting some low to mid level division one interest in his skill level.

Malone, who has impressed us as a player that can help a basketball team in many different ways, is expected to workout tonight with his high school team. It's expected several schools will show up and watch him play.

Sources tell us that Quinnipiac is likely to pay a visit to the high school this evening.

Previously, we reported that Josh had a terrific IS8 Fall League. Josh followed it up with a solid senior season for Deer Park High School.

Below is a look at a previous scouting report, produced by Mike Sullivan, Frank Mantesta, and Brian Towey.


TORREL HARRIS' VIEW OF JOSH MALONE'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: He's a multi-faceted player with many weapons to use at his disposal. He has an incredibly quick first step to the basket, possesses great ball handling skills, and can shoot from all spots on the floor.

SCHOOL INTEREST: Quinnipiac, Fairfield, St. Peter's, Stony Brook, Monmouth, St. Francis, Columbia, and Siena.
