Prospect Blooming Late
There are several seniors yet to make basketball commitments. St. John's (Md.) forward Nikita Mescheriakov and Kennedy guard Jeremy Herring are among the group of players who have helped themselves in the eyes of recruiters with their play this season.
However, it is possible that no player has helped himself as much as Montrose Christian guard Troy Brewer. The 6-foot-5 wing guard is averaging 11.8 points per game and scored a season-high 23 points in a loss to Oak Hill this past Saturday. He made seven three-pointers in that game.
"He's playing the best" of any of Montrose's players, Coach Stu Vetter said. "And he takes the toughest defensive assignment every game and has played very, very well."
Brewer holds offers from several mid-major schools including American, Loyola and Richmond, Vetter said, but his recent play has sparked interest from some bigger programs, including Maryland and Virginia Tech.
"People are looking at him now and saying, 'Wow, where has he been?' " Vetter said. "Because we've had a lot of other people [to play bigger roles]. Now he's coming into his own."
