This is kids is a scoring machine.
Maverick Rowan is a 2016 shooting guard playing for Lincoln Park, the same school that potential 2014 target Ryan Skovranko plays for. He stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs 175lbs, making him a pretty big guard.
He is not a guy that you have heard of, but he is one you will start hearing a lot over the next few years. I have heard that he shoots and scores the basketball from deep, alot like JJ Reddick. That’s some high praise.
Right now Rowan is playing on the AAU circuit with members of the 2015 class, despite not yet being a sophomore. He is playing with the OBC AAU team, alongside talented 2015 PF Carlton Bragg. Rowan said that he is gaining a lot of experience playing with the 16U team, and that he and Bragg are scoring the most just about every game.
I caught up with Rowan to get his thoughts on the early recruitment process he is experiencing. See what he had to say below.
What schools are currently recruiting you?
“UCLA, Pittsburgh, Robert Morris, WVU, Virginia, VA Tech, DePaul, St. Johns, Penn State, and Kentucky have all been in recent contact with me.”
“I don’t have any offers at this point, though.”
Do you have schools that you consider as your dream school?
“UCLA is my favorite.”
“I like UCLA, because I have just always liked them from day one of when I first started watching college basketball and it’s in Los Angeles, plus I like the Lakers.”
What are your thoughts on their new coach at UCLA?
“I think he will be a good for them. He was a good player himself, even thought he jumped around in the NBA.”
What would mean if you were offered by the Kentucky staff?
“It would mean a lot to get an offer from anywhere, because I have worked so hard to get where I am today.”
What do you think about Coach Calipari?
“I think he’s a great coach; he has had a lot of success in the past few years and he should have another great year this upcoming season.”
Rowan is an excellent player and shooter. He is playing ball with the 2015 class and holding his own. He’ll be one to watch as time goes on, in an extremely deep 2016 class.
