Griz recruit: Steve McClellan


STEVENMCLELLAN6_3150

Another Bay Area Hoosiers prospect the Griz basketball staff is looking at is 6-7 230 pound Steve McClellan from Edison high school in Fresno California. McClellan is primarily a power forward, although he has some interest in playing the small forward.

McClellan is a big physical player who is a beast inside a very good rebounder. I can not his exact stats but I believe he averaged around 16 points and 10 rebounds a game for Edison high school. He is a 2 year starter for Edison and played his freshman year with his brother Darshawn who now plays for Vanderbilt.

Last season McClellan was an all conference player for Edison and is also listed as on for the top 15 Power forwards on the west coast by Scout.com. ESPN ranks him as the #132 power forwards in the country and gives him a 79 rating.

Here is ESPN’s Evaluation: (this rating though is over a year old thought).

McClellan is the younger brother of Vanderbilt’s Darshawn McClellan. Like his older sibling he possesses a strong frame with long arms and overall solid length. At this stage he is a bit of a ‘tweener – not quick enough for the “three” and/or not big enough for the “four”. His skills are very raw as he gets most of his points off of offensive rebounds. He is a solid all-around athlete and fairly bouncy. Whether McClellan grows any more remains to be seen. In any case, at this juncture he needs to become more comfortable with the ball in the open court and develop some post savvy in order to get some division one attention.

Here is an evaluation from Scout.com based on his play with the Bay Area Hoosiers

Steven McClellan, Bay Area Hoosiers Red (Edison HS) 2010, 6’7 PF
Big, strong power forward is very physical inside. Played better as the tournament went on. Can score inside and rebounds extremely well.

Other schools who are showing interest in McClellan are Colorado State, San Diego State, Fresno State, San Francisco, CS Fullerton, CS Northridge, Long Beach St., Pacific, Weber State, and Sacramento St.
