NJ Forward Has A New Recruiting List

Reporter Mike Sullivan had a chance to update the recruiting status of Shaquille Duncan, a forward from the city of Philadelphia who plays some AAU ball for Team NJABC and head coach Matt Pauls as well as Paul Gripper's Team Phenom ...

Shaquille Duncan, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound forward from Frankfort High School in Philadelphia, Penn., continues to see recruiting interest pick up for him from event to event.

"His stock is on the rise," said Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls.

It certainly does. Shaquille is likely to see many division one programs watch him play during the July evaluation period as he competes for Paul Gripper's Team Phenom and Matt Pauls' Team NJABC.

"George Mason, University of Nebraska, University of Arkansas Little Rock, Virginia Commonwealth, Boston University, Seton Hall, Fairfield, Iona, Siena, among many others, are heavily involved," said Pauls.

Pauls says many division one programs love his size and his athletic ability. "He's been rebounding the ball well," said Pauls.

As he strengthens his frame, this will allow Shaquille to finish better in traffic against the big bodies inside the paint and near the rim.

The rising senior has shown us he has the ability to play against quality competition. Here are our previous thoughts about his individual game:

Shaquille has the ability to knock down the medium range jumper. He also possesses long arms which help him retrieve loose balls off the glass at both ends of the court.

As he strengthens his frame, Duncan will finish more effectively near the rim against the bigger bodies.
