April 6, 2009

The AAU season tipped off this past weekend in New Jersey with the annual Playaz Spring Fling, bringing in many of the top programs and players along the East Coast to the RAC on the Rutgers campus.

One very impressive performer in Friday night's action was Pittsburgh 2010 verbal commitment Isaiah Epps.

Playing for the NJ Playaz, the Plainfield HS star excelled showing off his blazing speed in the open floor and the diversity in his individual game as he possessed the sweetest looking shot on the floor.

Epps will give Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon a new element in his future backcourt, and explosive guard play that Epps will likely provide is certain to increase the Panthers' March Madness chances in the future.

While Epps used his elite-level speed to dance around defenders and prove that full court pressure was unable to slow him down, the 6-foot-2 combo guard will use a year of prep school to add weight and strength to his slight frame to be ready for the rigors of the physical Big East come the 2010-2011 season.

Pittsburgh got themselves a good one...

I've seen a few highlights of him on youtube and he has a really sweet stroke. To see him paired up with a SG like Will Barton would make even Ray Fittipaldo optimistic. I know its too early to tell these things but is Barton priority 1 for the other 2010 ship? I am assuming we don't have room for 3 in 2010 but who knows.

I think right now, Barton is the best bet for 2010 because of his friendship with Dante Taylor and because Pitt has been recruiting him hard for a long time. But he's far from a sure thing. The competition for him is tough.
