One of the state's top 2016 basketball prospects is T.L. Hanna point guard Brevin Galloway. The 6'1 175 pound prospect has played well on the AAU circuit and continues to power the Yellow Jackets as they have put up a strong record on the season thus far. We caught up with Galloway as he brought us up to speed regarding his recruitment and sophomore season currently.
"Right now I'm averaging 17 points and 5 assists per game. We're 14-3 right now," Galloway said.
We asked the sophomore to talk a little about his best game so far this season.
"My best game this year was against Wren. I ended up with 29 points and we won."
The talented sophomore gave us a rundown of what he feels his strengths and areas for improvement are on the court currently.
"I'd say my strengths are my shooting and being able to run a team. To get better I want to improve on the defensive end. Also get tighter with the ball against heavy defensive pressure."
So far this season Galloway says his toughest opponents have been guards Tyler Hooker and Randall Shaw of Hillcrest High School.
Although he's just a sophomore Galloway says he has heard from a handful of schools early on in the process already.
"I've heard from Clemson, Harvard, Wofford, South Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Winthrop so far. Out of those schools I'd have to say Clemson, South Carolina, and Georgia Tech are recruiting me the hardest right now."
Asked who his game most compares to he quickly replied, "Stephen Curry for sure. I can create my own shot and I can also make stuff happen for my teammates."
Curry also gets a nod from Galloway if he was to form his own 3 on 3 squad.
"I'd have to choose Steph and Dwight Howard. We've got shooters with me and Steph and a dominate post we can feed in Howard."
With academic powers like Harvard and Wofford showing early interest Galloway also shines in the classroom obviously.
"Yes sir. I pride myself on doing good in the classroom. I don't know exactly what my GPA is right now but last semester it was a 4.2."
Galloway says most schools are recruiting him as a point guard but that Clemson and South Carolina say they like him as a combo guard.
