2. Luke Rosinski, 6’7” Forward, Pinkerton Academy – this is not a class that has a lot of size, it’s pretty much all guards. But one of the factors you need to consider when projecting a player’s future progression is their upside and size certainly weights into that. At 6-foot-7, Rosinski has the size to play inside at a high level, and he also has the skill set and agility to also play out on the perimeter. As he adds muscle and continues to sharpen his ball handling, shooting and post moves his stock will only go up from here.
I love that our coaching staff is not afraid to compete for some top talent. Both of these guys are only juniors, so there is some growing left in them. I read one article that said that Beverley might be the best player in Kentucky’s class of 2016. His 1st claim to fame was scoring 23 points in the Kentucky Sweet 16 game as a 7th grader. 3* recruit, ranked as #37 PG.
I love maps and enjoy checking out the size of towns and their immediate areas to get a very rough idea of the the level of competition a recruit faces. Just checked out Hazard, Kentucky. OMG. It’s about 100 miles north, south, east, and west of nowhere. Only access was by boat until the railroad came through in 1912. I guess they’ll find you anywhere if you’re good.
