Greg Hicks of Scout.com is reporting that the Bobcats men’s basketball team is recruiting Spencer Dinwiddie of Taft high school in Woodland Hills California. Dinwiddie is a 6-2 160 pound point guard. Taft is a southern California power and typically puts multiple players in D-1 programs every year.
Last year coming off of Taft’s bench he averaged 4 points, 2 rebounds 2 assists while shooting 67% from 2 point, and 30 % from beyond the three point arc. Despite this, he is one of the hottest names among the west coast point guards after a very productive summer.
Here are a couple quotes / evals from Greg Hicks of Scout.com.
Spencer Dinwiddie, 6-2 PG Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft. He had a turnover last night – I think it was the first one in a week. Nearly flawless decision-maker….
……Easily the best point guard at the West Coast All-Star Camp, and one of the two best prospects overall, Dinwiddie is coming fast as a prospect. He has an outstanding feel for the game, with terrific vision and passing ability. He’s just starting to fill out physically and his game will go to a whole different level when he adds weight/strength.
September, 2009: Dinwiddie demonstrated why he will be one of the most highly coveted point guards on the west coast during the 2010-11 season (Full Court Fall Showcase). He has a wiry frame (long arms) that has really sprouted over the past few months. He needs to get considerably stronger to withstand the pressure at the next level, but the tools and feel for the game are very apparent. His passing is high level and he’s extremely unselfish. He can slash his way to the basket, but he needs to get stronger to finish with contact. His jump shot (more like a set shot) has improved as well and should get more fluid as his body matures. If his game continues to progress at this rate, he’ll certainly be one of the Top 10 prospects out west for his class this time next season.
Dinwiddie is receiving recruiting interest from Maryland, Georgetown, Wake Forest, Arizona State, Arizona, Cal, Colorado, UNLV, Hawaii, Washington, UCLA, USC, Washington State, Montana State, Stanford, Kansas and Santa Clara and holds offers from Hawaii, Montana State and Santa Clara.
