When Bryant offered Aahmod Scarbrough, it was more than an invitation to play for the program to the rising sophomore from St. Louis Christian (MO).
It was a sign that his hard work was paying off and it also gave him motivation to continue to get better.
“It just made me want to go harder because I know I got a lot more in me,” Scarbrough said. “It just made it more special being a kid from St. Louis and getting an offer from a D1 University.”
Scarbrough has two years of high school basketball left to be played and his first Division I scholarship offer behind him. His focus now is on getting better everyday and transforming into a player that should receive more scholarship offers before graduation in 2022.
“I’m trying to work on guarding better full court and really leading my team to a W,” he said. “Not really having to score to win but finding other ways to win. I’m not just trying to score, I’m trying to be different.”
In addition to his offer from Bryant, Nebraska-Omaha, Murray State, and Miami (OH) have all expressed interest. He should continue to have more college basketball coaches interested as more evaluate his film and watch him play during the fall on the Grind Session.
“Coaches like the fact that I can score at all three levels,” he said. “That I can lead a team and just being able to move in transition and get the ball to whoever open for a bucket.”
