New Jersey Underclassman Has Solid Skills

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the individual game of New Jersey underclassman prospect, Ryan McCoy, who competes at Montgomery High School ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound forward from Montgomery High School in the state of New Jersey, is likely to get many looks by division one college basketball programs due to his size and skill level.

We've had a chance to watch McCoy a few times over the AAU season. He can go to the deep corners and drain the jumper.

He's an underclassman too, a current junior and member of the 2011 class. So he has an opportunity, if he works hard, to continue making progress in his individual game.

The key for McCoy though will be the physical improvement, strengthening his frame, working on his foot speed, etc. If he makes strides in these particular areas, it's likely he'll have some decent division one offers to consider.

We've had a chance to speak to Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls and sample his thoughts about the individual game of Ryan McCoy. Pauls likes Ryan's ability to hit the jumper and produce points.

CURRENT OFFERS: The Citadel and Iona.

OTHER DIVISION ONE INTEREST: Boston University, Siena, Fordham, and Fairfield.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION REPORT ON RYAN MCCOY:

Ryan is an intriguing prospect due to his size, skills and age. A current junior and member of the 2011 class, he has displayed the ability to hit the deep ball.

"Ryan continues to get stronger, and he's working on his ball handling," said Pauls.

WHAT TEAM NJABC HEAD COACH 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 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).
