Romeo Weems is the highest rated prospect in the very deep and talented 2019 Michigan class.  After averaging 18 points and 11 rebounds last season for New Haven, Weems has taken yet another step forward this season and is averaging 28 points while leading his team to a 7-0 start.  

A top 50 prospect nationally by virtually every recruiting service (i.e. #31 on NY2LASPORTS.COM Class of 2019 board), The 6-7 wing plays a very physical game and he loves to play above the rim.  His jump shot is improving at a rapid pace and is starting to become a very big threat for opposing teams.  

One thing that stands out as well is his effort and when you combine that with his overall ability to fill the box score it’s easy to see why Weems is impressive and continues to see his stock elevate after a solid effort on the USA team.  Weems won a gold medal over the summer at the 2017 FIBA U16 Americas Championship playing with the U16 USA team.  Starting in all five games he put up very solid numbers averaging 7 points, 7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals per game. "It feels good to be a part of a great group of guys and coaches that help me get better but also help me become a better person too," Weems said about his experience playing with USA basketball.

Weems is a hot commodity already and his recruiting trail continues to grow with each passing month.  He holds offers from Michigan State, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio State, Iowa, Creighton, VCU, Oakland, and DePaul.  

The 2019 standout is planning on visiting Michigan State this weekend and has also scheduled a visit to DePaul next month.  He wants to attend a school that will make him a better player and get him ready for the NBA, his ultimate goal.  Whether he fulfills those loft goals is yet to be seen but one thing that’s for certain is Weems is a legit high major talent with a high major motor and he’s only getting better.

Weems plays with The Family during the grassroots travel season.
