One of the state's most explosive guards on the hardwood is 2014 point guard Tyreece Brice of South Pointe High School. The 5'11 180 pound prospect helped the Stallions have strong seasons the past two years. With a pair of scholarship offers on the table Brice is hoping a strong showing on the AAU circuit and strong senior season will lead to more offers possibly.
Last season Brice was hurt midway through the year and it affected his play down the stretch. He talked about his stats from his junior season.
"I ended up averaging 11 points, 5 assists, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals per game at the end of the season but those numbers were after I got hurt in the middle of the season. I was averaging 17 points, 8 assists, and 3 steals per game prior to getting hurt."
Despite the injury Brice earned All-Conference honors for the second straight year.
A number of colleges already know about Brice's talents and he shared with us his list of suitors currently.
"I've got offers from Presbyterian and Charleston Southern right now."
Brice feels a few more offers could be on the horizon soon too.
"I think maybe Gardner-Webb and Hawaii could be the next schools to offer me."
Asked about what his bread and butter is on the court Brice had this to say.
"I'd say my hustling on defense and on offense my ability to create shots for my teammates."
The South Pointe prospect also talked about areas he'd like to step his game up for this upcoming season as well.
"Just being more of a vocal leader and controlling the tempo of the game more effectively."
Brice says he has yet to take any visits but is looking forward to setting some visits up soon. He also talked about some schools he's hoping to hear more from in the near future.
"I'd like to hear more from Auburn, VCU, East Carolina and really any other schools that are in the states close by."
Brice currently runs on the AAU circuit with the Upward Stars.
As for his senior season next year Brice said this, "I want to be a better leader and I wanna lead my team to the championship and get a ring during my last year."
He gets it done on the court and in the classroom too apparently reporting a 3.5 GPA. The 2014 prospect says he's already qualified with his SAT and ACT scores already. He had a message for all potential college coaches too.
"I want college coaches to know that I'm a hard worker on and off the court. I made the all-conference team the past two seasons and also lead my team to a conference title two years in a row too."
