New head coach Ryan Arrowood didn’t take long to make a mark at his new program, Rio Grande. Landing 2020 point guard Andrew Shull now gives the program a leader, a distributor, a winner, and a scorer in the coming years.
Being a part of a tremendous program at Chapmanville, Shull will now have a chance to make his mark on a new program.
With Coach Arrowood leading the way, there is no doubt that Shull could flourish at the next level. Shull brings a unique ability to be able to be a scoring point guard, knocking down shots on all three levels and being tough when counted upon. He doesn’t lack confidence on the floor and is simply a winner both on and off the court.
This is what was said about Shull at our Virginia Top 150 back in October:
He’s an extremely smart, unselfish point guard prospect with an elite midrange pull-up and the necessary vision to set up others on every single possession. Shull is a great ball-handler with craftiness and the ability to touch the paint basically whenever he wants. He scores efficiently on all three levels but knows how to properly set up his teammates at a fairly constant rate. Shull is also deceptively quick, which he utilizes to break down defenders and contain his on-ball assignment on defense. Coach Banks on Shull: “Andrew is an excellent shooter that can score from anywhere on the court. His court vision is outstanding and he puts his teammates in the right position to succeed. Andrew maintained a positive attitude and accepted coaching well throughout the day.”
Now, he will be looking to take his game to yet another level and be a key contributor in the coming years.
Interview with Shull on his commitment:
PHR: What made Rio Grande the place for you in the end?
Shull: I built a great relationship with Coach Arrowood. He just got the job recently. he used to coach at Teays Valley Prep and has watched me for a while. Once he got the job, I was his first phone call. So we’ve talked every day since then and built a great relationship.
PHR: What do you want to bring to the program on the court?
Shull: I’m looking to bring leadership right out of the gate. I’m going to have a big role right from the start. And I believe coach is going to build a great culture there and I”m super excited to be a part of it. The main thing I was looking for was a place where I was going to play young. And here, coach has great confidence in me, so I just knew it was the right fit.
