New Jersey PF To Play For Local AAU Team

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on a 2011 prospect from the state of New Jersey in Kevin Myricks, who is expected to play at some local AAU events ...

Kevin Myricks, a 6-foot-5 power forward from BCIT (Burlington County Institute of Technology) in Westampton, New Jersey, is a player to watch over the next several months as he will compete for Team NJABC AAU team.

"Kevin is a very rugged inside player, has great hands and a knack for the ball," said Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls.

Pauls added: "He has great post moves, and because he is a lefty he throws defenders off a bit. Has been hurt a bit lately, but as he recovers, he has tremendous upside."

Kevin's game also features the ability to knock down a medium range jumper. However, like all high school players, he's working on some areas of his individual game.

"He can improve on his ballhandling and quickness," said Pauls.

Pauls continued: "He is new to the grassroots scene, but without a doubt has the potential to be a great player."

It's likely that schools that have followed the players at Team NJABC will take a hard look at Kevin's game over the next few months. Certainly, schools like Fairfield, Fordham, Stony Brook, etc. will take a look at Kevin's game.
