I have heard that Wayne Tinkle and his staff are recruiting Stefan Buratto from Sandpoint Idaho. Buratto is a 6-3 180 pound shooting guard who is burning up the net in Northern Idaho.
Buratto is an explosive scorer who has deep range but also has a very good intermediate game. Originally from Spokane Washington he joined the Sandpoint high school team during his junior year where he averaged 15 points a game. This season though he has exploded on the scene and I believe leads the entire State in scoring with a 24 point a game average. I do not have the official stats but I believe he also averaged 8 rebounds and 4 assists a game, but he is primarily known as a scorer.
Sandpoint has had a tough season this year currently with a 6-15 season as a result Buratto has double and triple team coverage as teams have tried to stop him, still he managed to dominate the score board, including two games where he has scored 40 or more points. With the play-offs though underway Sandpoint is the one team all the high ranked teams fear.
Buratto plays in the same conference as future Bobcat Shawn Reid (Post Falls high school). While Burrato won the head to head battle with Reid – 38 pts ave. vrs 19 pts ave, – Post Falls won the head to head battle with two victories (94-75 and 79-72).
