New Jersey Underclassman Making Progress

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game of Ryan McCoy, a talented underclassman from the state of New Jersey who is already receiving serious interest from some division one programs ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound forward from Montgomery High School in the state of New Jersey, is a player to watch over the next year. Recently, he was offered a scholarship by The Citadel, according to Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls.

He also had a solid showing at the Rutgers basketball elite camp, giving many who love his game more hope that this is just the beginning for interest in the skilled forward.

"Ryan also had a great showing at the American University Elite Camp," said Pauls.

McCoy had also previously taken an unofficial campus visit to Fairfield.

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

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).

OTHER SCHOOLS OF INTEREST:

MAAC, Patriot League and Ivy League programs are interested early in his recruiting process. We previously mentioned initial interest by Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Robert Morris, and Davidson.
