With many scholarship offers on the horizon in the future, Basha High School's rapidly-developing 6-foot-10 rising junior post Devin Kirby has reeled in his first offer from Grand Canyon University, as head coach Dan Majerle and his basketball staff have emerged as the first program to express their considerable interest. The GCU staff has done an excellent job in recruiting the state's best talent in a short period of time, and are wasting no time in making it known to the state's best prospects.
No player has emerged more this club season than verbal leader on and off the basketball court. The younger brother of current college post Maurice Kirby (Virginia Tech transfer), Kirby has been regarded as one of the elite prospects in Arizona’s 2016 class by our Arizona Preps’ staff for some time. This club season, Kirby has developed physically and mentally and looks to be an elite-high major division-I prospect for the future.
Kirby is quickly beginning to realize much of his potential as a college prospect – blocking shots, rebounding, running the floor hard and finishing strong at the rim over defenders. Kirby’s recent performance has been a nice preview to just how good this young man will become over time. Unfortunately for his opponents, Kirby seems to be realizing his potential much sooner than expected. With continued hard work and development as a player, Kirby should develop nicely into an elite high-major prospect, as a result of his size, length and overall skill level as a college prospect.
Look for Kirby to continue his development as a prospect over time, and become one of the more sought after recruiting targets in the country over the next two years. The future looks very bright for this younger Kirby.
