What a year it has been for a guard that could quickly become a bigger name around the country. Not only helping lead the charge to a state title this year, now 2023 Silas Demary is getting a chance to showcase his talents even more on the big stage this summer.
Rewind to a months ago and into the last offseason, then 2022 Silas Demary Jr. was a hot name in what he showed with his all-around game as a guard. He is a smart prospect that plays incredibly hard and consistently. He excels in not only making plays for himself, finishing strong on multiple levels but also can make plays for others as well.
He showed that this past season in helping Millbrook to a title, averaging 17.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 2.8 steals while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 42 percent from three; impressive numbers for the young guard.
Now, he recently announced that he will part of the class of 2023, which should only bring more intrigue with his game, and will certainly be one of several big names in North Carolina for that class.
Demary is now leading the charge for Team Curry 16u, an opportunity he is very excited about. And he is also getting more chances to catch college coaches’ eyes as well.
“My excitement is just the environment they bring every time we are together,” he replied. “The coaches are always pushing you and always expect a lot from you. They also run the program like it’s college.”
Being part of the 2023 class and playing on a big platform with Team Curry, coaches are certainly starting to come more his way and his recruitment could really start to take off soon.
“Recruitment has been going well for me,” Demary told Phenom Hoops. “I’ve been hearing from Virginia Tech, Marquette, UT-Martin, The Citadel, and Presbyterian. Virginia Tech has been in contact with me since pretty much the end of last year’s AAU season. (Marquette) reached out a few days before the new staff. I was on with Coach (Justin) Gainey and they said they really liked my game and felt that I would fit their style of play.”
Other schools like UT-Martin, The Citadel, and Presbyterian have also been expressing similar messages, just asking when he will be playing this summer and wanting him to come check out the campus.
Though no offers have come in yet, all the schools are saying that they are looking for a big guard that can lead a team and knock down shots, which is why Demary is on their radar. There is no doubt about it though, Silas Demary Jr. could be a name you hear a lot this summer, so get ready for the ride.
