PG Brandon Curry: Stock Rising Quickly

North Augusta PG Brandon Curry is a blur on the court. His ability to break down opposing defenses opened some eyes this past season on the AAU circuit. Now D1 programs have started to show the 2009 prospect some early attention. Come inside with SCPrepNation.com for more about Brandon.

The Palmetto State's hoops class of 2009 is shaping up to be one of the deepest in quite some time. PG Brandon Curry out of North Augusta High School appears to be one of the state's best point guards in the 09' class.

We caught up with Brandon's AAU coach Curtis Wheeler for more about one of the state's fastest rising ballers.

Wheeler talked about Curry in depth as to what makes the point guard such an outstanding prospect. "Brandon is one of the fastest players on the court with the ball in his hands. He pushes the ball up the court full speed with constant pressure on the defense. Brandon gets in the lane with ease and usually ends the play with a nice pass to a teammate for a score."

"Brandon played AAU this season with his high school (Carolina Hoyas-North Augusta HS) and had great games against two of the state's top programs (Carolina Celtics and SC Ravens). There was not a player on either team that could keep Brandon out of the lane. He was making play after play for his team. He played the Ravens at the 2nd Annual Augusta Icebreaker (Augusta, GA) and he played versus the Celtics at the AAU Super Regional held at Clemson University." Later on in the AAU season Curry went on to elevate his game even more Wheeler told us. "Brandon played for the Peach Jam Select during the Peach Jam Sweet 16. There he averaged 12 points and 8 assists per game during the tournament. He finished the summer off by playing with Team Truth and Team Georgia Elite at the AAU Super Showcase and Price Chopper-Kansas City Invitational."

His stock has risen pretty quickly and with 2 more seasons to go with North Augusta and on the AAU circuit expect his stock to continue its rise. Wheeler says a number of college programs have began recruiting Curry. "From his summer play Brandon has gained interest from Western Kentucky, Toledo, Winthrop, and Charleston Southern."

"Brandon excels at pushing the tempo and getting into the lane. He has good vision and is always looking for the open man. Brandon is also a good on-ball defender. He will help lead a talented North Augusta High School squad this year. His interest level from colleges will improve during the HS season and spring AAU events," Wheeler said.
