Some of the best players on the island haven't gotten the proper exposure and buzz so we created " I'M NEXT!" We wanted to help expose players who have a real chance of playing at the next level.
Allow us to introduce Giancarlo Santiago! The 6'6 Class of 2011 SF recently won Little Lads MVP playing for Bucaplaa which is one of the top clubs on the island. Santiago has bulked up and improved almost every part of his game. He's got solid range, plays above the rim and is a competitor. He's got great upside and if he decides to attend prep school for a year and get accustomed to the contact and speed of the game in the states he has a real chance to play at a high mid major D1 program. He's a great kid whose GPA is over a 3.0 GPA and is fluent in English!
PR Playamkers Founder Todd Washington had this to say about Giancarlo,"I worked him out last week and I couldn't believe how much better he's gotten since last summer when we started working with him. The guys over at Bucaplaa have done a great job developing his skill package and Giancarlo has clearly been in the weight room. We've had several top prep schools interested in him since last summer. Sky's the limit for Giancarlo if he decides to spend a year at Prep School."
Remember the name, Giancarlo Santiago! He's next!
