More Information on Reported Buff Commit G Shannon Sharpe

Point guard Shannon Sharpe (Senior, Corona, Calif./Corona Centennial) absolutely changed the game with his defensive effort against aggressive the Celtics' Trae Golden (Powder Springs, Ga./McEachern), shutting down Golden's penetration to the hoop.

  • The same article offers up these scouting notes on Sharpe from the tournament (they also added three inches to him):

Shannon Sharpe, 6-3, PG
Senior, Corona, Calif./Corona Centennial

Sharpe has very good lateral quickness, long arms and good strength that he uses to control the game on the defensive end. He slides his feet well and rarely comes out of his defensive stance, all while applying outstanding ball pressure. He hustles all over the court and has a nose for the ball. Sharpe has great energy and plays passing lanes for steals well.

Here is the our surprise player of the summer: Shannon Sharpe. Sharpe who just graduated high school this year, caught our attention at the Pangos All West Camp a week ago by his athletisism and his overall play, especially his hustle and defense. Sharpe has no problem taking it to the hole, matter of fact that's what he likes to do best (we didn't see him shooting much), he has great athletisism and he uses it well to his advantage, he never gives up on a play, plays tremendous D and NEVER complains.
