When 2020 6’10 Javarzia Belton steps on the floor, there is no way you can’t miss him. One of the most physical prospects in the class, Belton has overcome a ton of obstacles this year en route to a state championship and now, his recruitment could be coming to an end as well.
Belton faced a tough time dealing with injuries throughout the season but he was able to walk away with Moravian Prep crowned champions at the Phenom’s HoopState Championship. His recruitment started to slow down a little but programs still stuck around while also receiving a new offer over the weekend.
Belton announced that he had received an offer from Southern Miss and had this to say shortly after.
“It was good,” he said. “I had a rough year so getting an offer was pretty big. They said I would come in getting minutes and potentially start as a freshman.”
The Southern Miss staff reached out to Belton on last Friday and offered the next day. Southern Miss now joins a few other programs in Belton’s recruitment.
College of Charleston has continued to make him a priority and an offer remains on the table.
“Charleston has been saying I could come in starting as a freshman,” Belton said. “I love the coaching staff and what they think I can turn out to be. They were one of the first teams to recruit me.”
Right now, with the season over, Belton is focusing on his decision of where he would fit best. There are a few factors that he is looking at but he just wants to be part of a winning program.
“(I’m looking to decide) pretty soon and I’m looking to go in and get minutes and to grow better as a man. I want to play for a winning team and come in, joining a good brotherhood.”
No matter where Belton goes, he has a chance to really man the middle and make his presence known.
