Stall High School is the home of a promising 2013 prospect in Seth McKelvey. The 6'7 230 pound power forward/small forward has been a huge presence for his team during his first two seasons. In fact, McKelvey has won region player of the year during his first two seasons for Stall High. Nearly averaging a double-double McKelvey is hoping to step his game up even further heading into his junior season and that's why he's "UP NEXT" with SCPrepNation.com and the Scout.com network.
Things were progressing pretty nicely for McKelvey this off season on the AAU circuit until some unfortunate events beyond his control his time on the travel circuit was cut short.
"My AAU season was very well until July. Nobody wanted to pay so they canceled our season with no exposure tournaments."
The 6'7 pound prospect says he didn't attend any college camps or take any visits this off season either. He's hoping to breakout this coming season in order to generate more interest with two seasons to go. The 2013 prospect says he'd like to hear from some of the in-state and regional schools soon hopefully.
His work on the court for Stall has been efficient to say the least as he talked about his first two years on the squad.
"As a freshmen I was the first freshman to have a double-double on varsity and I also was All-region and player of the year. As a sophomore I was also selected as all-region and player of the year. I was also the team's leading scorer and rebounder too."
This past season McKelvey averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds. He talked about one of his best outings and an opponent that provided him with a tough challenge last season.
"My best game last year I had 23 points and 13 rebounds and the toughest player I played last season was a player from Africa he was a 6'9 small forward that could slash to the basketball very good."
Right now McKelvey says his bread and butter is his rebounding ability and his ability to post up with his back to the basket. There are other areas that he's been working on to make strides on improving further.
"I worked hard this off season on my ability to face up, my mid-range jump shot and my explosiveness."
Although his squad went 5-15 last season McKelvey told us what he's hoping to achieve this coming season as a junior.
"My goals this upcoming season are to make the playoffs and to better myself and my teammates."
SCPrepNation.com and the Scout.com team will continue to follow the play and recruitment of Seth McKelvey and other top hoops prospects here in the Palmetto State so stay tuned.
