Brophy Prep High School's hard-working 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior guard prospect Romano Bottini has found a college home for himself for the near future, after he would receive a phone call this week from from a college program - extending an offer to him for next season.
After speaking with Point Loma Nazarene University assistant coach Jordan Cornea this weekend, Bottini received an opportunity to walk on next season, as a preferred walk-on to the basketball program - an offer that Bottini will accept next fall.
Bottini has helped his Brophy Broncos to a 12-10 overall record this season with tough and hard-nosed play. While the team has struggled at times this season, Bottini's effort is always consistent. Very few high school players work as hard or as much as Bottini. One of the better guard prospects in Arizona’s 2014 class, Bottini has worked tirelessly throughout his high school career to raise his game. The hard work has paid off for Bottini as he added size to his once very thin frame, and raised his level of confidence on the basketball court.
Bottini is a tough, hard-nosed guard prospect that competes hardest on the defensive end of the floor, where he is often seen defending the opposing team’s best player and creating havoc for his opponent. He always seems to be on the floor diving for loose balls, deflecting passes, and giving opposing guard fits on the court. Bottini is also a pure shooter of the basketball with a nice, left-handed shooting stroke with nice range.
Bottini is an amazing student and carries a 3.8 CUM GPA at one of the state’s premier academic institutions.
Congratulations to Bottini and his family on landing a college program for his future.
