Here is some of the high school basketball news that we have been hearing about in the off-season and this goes along with all the coaching changes that we have been seeing in the past week….
Ryan Freeman head boys basketball coach at Northern Guilford the past three years not headed anywhere just yet..Ryan Freeman no longer coaching at Northern, but still on the teaching staff at NG….There is a boys job opening at Burlington Williams….Tommy Cole coached both the boys and girls teams at Williams last season and I don’t know how anyone could keep that up…..We do wish the best of luck to Coach Freeman….He did a great job at Northern, after taking over the Nighthawks in the time of turmoil and he took them to the Pizza Hut Finals in his second year with the Nighthawks….Coach Freeman would make a great coach if Burlington Williams or another school decides to look in his direction….
Cory Haines from High Point Central to Forsyth Country Day….The Furies are loading up and Haines is a very highly regarded player by Rick Lewis at the Phenom Hoop Report and we look for Haines to re-class with FCD and be a sophomore next season….Haines only real weakness in the past has been his jump shot and he has been working on that part of his game this summmer….
Sam Hunt to Wesleyan is still the talk and if it has not been locked down yet, it could well be a done deal by July 1….Sam would be leaving Dudley and if does go ahead and end up at Wesleyan like we feel he will, he will be re-joining former Duldey teammate Jaquel Richmond and we would probably see Sam go back to the two-guard and Jaquel run the point for WES…..Would love to see Sam stay at Dudley and go ahead and finish up there, but if moves on over to WES and begins play for Coach Keith Gatlin, we hope it all works out OK for Sam…My only major regret is that if Sam leaves Dudley and new coach Brian Seagraves, the Panthers will not have a proven leader coming back to run the show for the Panthers in 2012/2013….Dudley will need that floor-leader and if Sam goes over to WES, will he will re-class and finish with Richmond and Theo Pinson, in their senior year??? Sam would have been a senior at Dudley this upcoming season……He could re-class and get the extra year of high school at WES…Sam going or Sam staying, we will have to wait and see for sure, but it looks like he is gone and on his way to WES….
