2011 Prospect Has Solid D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan profiles the individual game of New Jersey prospect Ryan McCoy, who has impressed division one coaches with his ability to produce points ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound forward from Montgomery High School in the state of New Jersey, is coming off a solid college team camp at St. Joseph's in Philadephia, Penn.

His size and skill level has attracted several programs too to monitor his progress this summer on the AAU circuit.

It helps his Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls is very positive about McCoy's ability to produce as a division one player in college basketball. "Because of his size and his ability to score points on many parts of the floor, college coaches are interested," Pauls said.

McCoy just completed his sophomore season too, giving him ample time to make further improvements in his individual game. And he's considered a hard worker so it's expected he'll make the needed progress to land some scholarship offers.

WHAT MATT PAULS PREVIOUSLY SAID ABOUT RYAN MCCOY'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

He's emerging as one of the better players in the area from his class. He can play the wing position. He is one of the best pure shooters in the 2011 class (New Jersey).

Ryan works hard both on the court and in the classroom. So he could have a wide range of schools recruiting him in the future.

McCoy will have a decent range of schools pursuing him. We previously reported he had early interest from Davidson, Robert Morris, and Cornell. You can add Fairfield as well to this growing list.
