Griz Recruit: Antonio Worthy


worthyWest Coast Hoops Reports is reporting that the Montana Grizzly staff is recruiting Antonio Worthy of Montebello high school in the Long Beach area of California. I think it is safe to say Worthy is a true big man at 6-11 and tipping the scales any where from 270-300 pounds. Worthy will be entering his junior season, this coming year at Montebello, so will be part of the 2011 recruiting class.

I do not have Worthy’s official stats from last year, but he lead Montebello in scoring averaging approximate 14 points and 12 rebounds a game while shooting 50% from the field. He has started every game since his freshman year, and is not afraid to use his size to get his advantage. As a freshman he was listed as a 6-8 300 pounds, and this past year (his sophomore year) he was listed 6-10 and 300 pounds, but has lost about 20 pounds and is now listed at 6-11 280. He played well enough this summer that he has caught the eye of quite a few D-1 programs, but his weight will be the key element to his recruitment.

Here is an evaluation from CaliforniaPreps.com from last summer:

6’9″ 2011 Antonio Worthy of Montebello HS, CA (L.A. Rockfish #2) and (Southeast LA)-Has tremendous hands and does a nice job of keeping the ball high when he catches. Capable rebounder and finisher too. Needs to lose weight and develop conditioning.



Then again from CaliforniaPreps.com this past spring:

The difference in the game was SELA’s big guy, 6-foot-11 rising junior Antonio Worthy (Montebello). It didn’t matter how many guys suited up for DBC – they had no one that could match up against Worthy’s size. He’s a bit of a project but seemed to get more comfortable as the game wore on and dominated the paint at times in the second half.

Here is what West Coast Hoops Reports had to say about Worthy this past week end:

6-11 Antonio Worthy, a raw but promising big guy who needs to improve his conditioning and stamina. Worthy, who will be a junior at Montebello High School, is strong inside and has a good touch. Washington State, USC, Loyola Marymount and Montana have all given him a look and if he sheds a few pounds and learns to finish better, more schools might come calling.

It is apparent that Worthy has the skills and talent to play D-1 ball in a few years, but it will boil down to his weight and conditioning.


Note: the picture above is a few years old from his freshman year.

    Just want to make a correction. As an alumni of MHS, we are not from the “Long Beach” area. We are a suburb of Los Angeles.
