Name to Know
6'5' Sophomore Sharone 'June' Wright Jr. of West Florence (SC)
By Jamie Shaw

The path to becoming a highly ranked player is different in each situation. However, in June Wright's situation, his path is being written as we speak.

Currently standing at 6'5' and wielding a 6'10' wing span Wright is already a unique prospect because he is a true point guard. However, Wright has great basketball lineage. His father, Sharone Wright is a Clemson legend and the 6th overall pick in the 1994 NBA draft. Along with a 7' father, Wright's mother is also 6'2'.

Already playing as a true point guard, Wright is projected to conservatively end up in the 6'8'. There in lies the unique nature of this prospect. So far this season Wright has stepped his game up. Which is to be expected, with the athleticism he possesses and the growth spurt he is in the middle of. Ending the summer, playing with the Atlanta Xpress, Wright stood 6'2'.

His stats back up his Top 100 status. This season Wright is averaging 15 points, 5.5 boards, and 4 assists per game. His shooting has improved drastically as he is connecting on 35% of his 3 point attempts, and 54% of his shots overall. Defensively he uses his length and instincts to average 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.

As we predicted this summer, in the past couple of months, Wright has blown up across the recruiting land scape. He currently carries offers from Cal, Georgia, Duquesne, and others. Clemson, South Carolina, and UConn have each been in to see him multiple times. Expect his recruitment to take off, as a national thing. I

At its core Wright has the upside to be a lengthy 6'8' player with point guard skills and a father who was an NBA lottery pick. That description intrigues among the nation's highest prospects.
