Big Man Stands Out
Largo 6-11 junior Maurice Sutton is attracting plenty of top college attention and if he continues to play like he did in last night's Prince George's County championship game, there seems little question Sutton will be a top recruit.
Sutton finished with 10 points, 19 rebounds and eight blocks as the undefeated Lions beat C.H. Flowers, 71-63. While Sutton rarely faces opponents who are comparable in size, Flowers center Daniel Thompson gave him a challenge. Thompson had 18 points and 15 rebounds; his active play kept Flowers in the lead for much of the first half.
But Sutton's presence at both ends of the court helped change the game. When Flowers's guards penetrated, they often were by the tall shotblocker, altering several shots. On the offensive end, Sutton got very few touches outside of the high post, but he continually made his way to the basket for offensive rebounds. There are few players with his size and ability in the college game.
Sutton is already on the recruiting map for many top programs, including Maryland and Virginia. If he continues to improve, look for Sutton to be a top prospect.
