North Carolina High School Basketball commitment

May 15, 2008

Although this post is not related to an ACC school, I live in North Carolina and I like to pay attention to NC basketball players. One such player is Justin Griffith (6’5″, F) who played for Mount Tabor High School (Winston-Salem) this season. Griffith has commited to N.C. Wesleyen. Griffith averaged 8.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 1.9 apg during his senior season.

Griffith is a teammate of Clemson 2009 target C.J. Harris (6’2″, SG).

Miami Recruiting Notes, 2009

May 15, 2008

Miami has come a long way under coach Frank Haith, and with wings and bigs coming in from the Class of 2008, they will have to either develop their point guard play or recruit some playmakers. Without focusing too much on the current roster, Miami’s recruiting has focused a lot on PG, having offered scholarships to John Wall (6’3”), Kenny Boynton (6’2”), Peyton Siva (5’11”), Michael Dixon (6’1”), Mfon Udofia (6’2”), Ben Eblen (6’0”) and Taariq Muhammad (6’2”).

Peyton Siva’s current list has eliminated the Hurricanes, but the offers are telling. Miami is focusing hard on trying to get a good point guard. In state player Kenny Boynton is an elite talent who is often listed as a SG, and Miami really wants him, but they are competing with Duke, Florida and UConn. I don’t think John Wall is even considering Miami. But the context remains the same, Miami’s staff has made it clear that a PG is a huge priority for 2009.
