Suarez Update

Three of the top PG in the class of 2011 are all looking to have big summers and get ready for their senior year! Rasham Suarez has left PR in the 9th grade and has attended three different prep schools in 3 years. This has been by choice and from what we hear the kid is having a great spring season playing AAU ball for a Nike Travel Team in Atlanta. Rasham has proven that he can compete at the highest level and has really focused on getting his body in shape. Playing PG is one of the toughest transitions from HS to college so getting prepared for the contact at the D1 level is critical. The question for Rasham is his athletic ability. He is an above average athlete who must begin to play above the rim and not rely so much on his jump shot rather getting to the rim and finishing above it. Mid Majors are all over him and some SEC schools have shown interest.
We think he has the tools to plat High Major D1 but must do the things this summer to strengthen his legs and improve quickness and leaping ability. We think Gonzaga, Xavier and possibly even Miami are great fits!

IPRB confirmed that Rasham's dad, Gamaliel and Coach from St. Benedicts spoke last night and that Rasham might consider transferring there if they made an offer. Gamaliel and Coach Mcleod from St. Benedicts have been friends for quite some time.
