It's time to introduce the 2014 D1 Ambassadors "Fab Five" freshmen to the rest of the basketball world. I've been meaning to do this article for awhile but last night I saw my old friend, Ray Jackson of Michigan and Fab Five fame at Bryan High School. After chatting with him I resolved to quit procrastinating and get this done.
The Great American Shootout's are an excellent way to evaluate where you're at as a player and a team. The young frosh were entered into the NCAA (mid division) of the event which typically consists of high school teams or of select teams who are made up of sophomores and juniors. Someone forgot to tell these guys to walk softly. They came out carrying a big stick, blowing out two opponents while also beating a talented Houston Lynx Yellow squad.
2014 6'4" W Garret Gray of Marble Falls
Add Gray to our long list of track men who were also outstanding hoopers too. He's a blazing 100 meter man with a nice mid range game and a bounce in his step.
2014 6'1" WG Matt Perry of Kerrville Tivy
Perry, whose brother Jonathan is a D1 alum, competes hard every time out and already shows the trademark Perry perimeter game and basketball savvy.
2014 6'0" PG Chase Carlton of Austin Westlake
Carlton is a floor general and a tough competitor who will find the open man as well as knock down shots. He looks to get his team mates the ball first, but leave him open and he goes off.
2014 6'1" CG Trey Dilworth of Round Rock McNeil
One of Texas' purest, powerful and skilled athletes. Dilworth can shoot the three but is devastating when going to the rack, where he wants to flush everything.
2014 6'5" CG Aubrie King of Mumford
Son of legendary shooter, Alvie King. The Mumford Musket was one of the State's top scorers and three point shooters as a frosh. He sports the old school Chris Mullin 'do and shoots like him too.
The rest of the country will get to know these youngster quite well in the near future.
