2022 Sunrise Christian (KS) shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe would have benefited greatly from a live period.
He has already made his mark on a national stage with Sunrise Christian, and also with Team Canada in the 2019 FIBA U16 Americas Championship.
With Team Canada he averaged 13 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assist during the event that turned out to be a great experience for himself.
“The experience was really good,” he said. “I learned a lot about the game and what it takes to get to the top, and also gave me a chance to play for my country and try to bring home Gold.”
So far, Creighton, Xavier, Cincinnati and Maryland have been recruiting the 6-foot-4 guard that has remained consistently hot in recruiting circles despite not being able to play in front of coaches.
“I think with everything that has been going on with the Covid-19 pandemic, and the fact that coaches can’t get into the gym to watch players, they’ve had more opportunity to watch Hudl practices and game film from the high school season,” Sharpe explained.
In response, he received three offers in May and all coaches have expressed similar reasons as to why they love his game.
“Coaches like the way I can get out in transition,” he said. “My athleticism, and being able to make the right decisions.”
