One of the top guard prospects in Arizona's 2017 class is 6-foot-1 rising junior guard Treyvon McCray. McCray has been tearing up the hardwood for several years within the state, and this weekend he put it all together and had a very strong performance at the Pangos Summer Sweet 16 event in Los Angeles, CA.
McCray raised some eyebrows with his play this weekend, and proved why our staff regards him as one of the best guard prospects in the class. While playing for his talented club program, the Arizona Magic Elite 16U, McCray helped lead the team to a strong finish in the event, as they won the Consolation Championship of the tournament.
McCray showed off his superb handle of the basketball, and ability to score the basketball amidst defenders. McCray's herky jerky offensive style makes him very difficult to defend, as he utilizes changes of speed and direction to keep his defenders off balance. He also has wonderful body control when he gets into the lane. Combined with an excellent overall feel for the game, McCray is a problem with the basketball in his hands.
As a result of his play on Saturday in the event, when McCray went off on a scoring barrage in a semi-final playoff match-up, McCray drew significant interest from assistant coaches from Cal State Fullerton and also University of Portland.
McCray is also coming off an excellent sophomore season at Copper Canyon HS, after averaging 15.9 points and 3.4 assists per/game.
In a loaded class of players in Arizona's 2017 class, McCray is among the very best players at his position. While not possessing a household name like that of other top-rated prospects in the state, McCray is soaring below the recruiting radar now, but is one prospect to keep an eye on.
