Virginia has had several bigs come through the state and 2023 6’9 Brock Vice looks to be one of the next ones to come up.
Playing at the Teammate Nationals, Phenom Hoops was on deck multiple times to watch the big man go to work and one can easily see that this young man will be coveted by college coaches down the road.
Playing at Blacksburg high school in Virginia, Vice showed tremendous potential and ability on the floor, playing like a true big (which is something that can’t always be said these days). He moves really well on both ends, uses his size well on the boards and keeps the ball high, while also showing impressive low-post, back-to-the-basket feel offensively. Vice plays with a great IQ and feel for the game early on but still is raw in areas, which should only excite coaches on the end product.
You certainly can’t teach size but when you add footwork, skill, and touch around the paint for a rising sophomore, Vice is one to start targeting now and should be a big-time recruit down the road as he continues to put it all together.
