Recruiting List Grows For Improving Forward

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a detailed look at the individual game of forward prospect Ryan McCoy, who is expected to play in some events held in the tri-state area during the month of July ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound forward from Montgomery High School in the state of New Jersey, is a player worth watching this summer. The month of July is always a big month for players like McCoy, who is starting to show up on some division one radar recruiting screens.

"He's going to be a promising player in division one because he can score points and has some skills," said Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls.

Ryan showed his skill level at the St. Joseph's basketball camp, giving himself more confidence as he prepares for the July evaluation period.


Because of his size and his ability to score points on many parts of the floor, college coaches are interested.

"He's only going to be a junior next Fall. So he has some time to make even more progress in his game. I expect him to become a better player because he's a hard worker.

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).


Many Patriot League and Ivy League programs are likely to follow McCoy at some of the events in the month of July.

Pauls told us that Fairfield, Columbia, Cornell, Robert Morris, and Davidson had shown some interest.
