Wing Offensive Threat Worth Watching

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a free look at the individual game of Ryan McCoy, a talented underclassman from the state of New Jersey who has the ability to score points from the wing ...

Ryan McCoy, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound junior forward prospect from Montgomery High School in New Jersey, is worth watching this season as division one programs start to show more interest in his skill level.

The 2011 prospect had impressed us over the past few months as being capable of scoring points from the wing position. How he improves his strength and consistency will determine the amount of scholarship offers from division one programs.

If he makes improvements in the areas of strength and consistency of scoring near the rim, the list will grow for this hard-working basketball player.

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.
