Player: Christian Bliss
Class: 2024
Height: 6’4
Position: Guard

2024 Christian Bliss has been helping lead the charge at George School this season, as the point guard has the size, the vision and court awareness, and is crafty with the ball in his hands.  The junior guard has been strong this season and will look to continue his play into the summer.  And his recruitment has been continuing to rise, with new offers coming in.  His latest came from Villanova, as he talked to Phenom Hoops about it and a lot more.

Phenom: How has everything been going this season so far? How have you elevated your game and what are you wanting to show more on the court?
Bliss: So far, I would say the season is going well.  Have had our ups and down early on.  But we are getting better day by day and learning from our mistakes.  But we are really preparing in being our best when it comes time for playoffs in late February. I feel like I have improved my game in every aspect but really, I am trying to show that I am a complete player and could do just about everything on the court. 

Phenom: How would you best describe your game?
Bliss: A point guard who plays both ends of the floor, can make others better, and score the ball from all three levels.

Phenom: How has recruitment been going? Got a big offer recently. Thoughts on that?
Bliss: Recruitment has been going well. Just trying to not get caught up in it all and focus on getting better.  Villanova has always been one of those schools I dreamed to play at when I was younger, so that offer means a lot to me.

Phenom: What kind of relationship have you built with them?
Bliss: I definitely like the coaching staff. I’m excited to continue to get closer to the coaches.  I like that they really push their guys and teach them what it takes to win.

Phenom: How long have you been talking to you and showing interest?
Bliss: One of the coaches came to my open gym in the fall and then I went to their tip-off event, which was cool.  And then, I saw them again a few days ago at the game against Xavier.

Phenom: What other schools have been staying strong with you your way?
Bliss: Schools like Virginia, Iowa State, St. John’s, and DePaul have been in contact.

Phenom: Have any visits coming up?
Bliss: Not sure yet but I will take a few after the season.
