While this junior does not hold a scholarship offer yet, he has plenty of tools to succeed at the division one level. This player is Bobby McWard of McKinney Christian Academy in Texas and 3D Empire.  

Last spring and summer McWard made plenty of noise playing with 3D Empire earning himself second team all-league honors at the 16U level of the NY2LA Association. The 6’3” guard has continued that right into his junior season. Right now, he is averaging 18.9 points, 3.3 assists, and 2 steals per game to have his team out to a 32-5 record. Not only has he put up big numbers but done it efficiently by shooting 44% from three as well as 57% from the field. 

“A sharpshooter first who can put the ball on the floor and score in multiple ways,” McWard stated to describe his game. Adding in, “But I love being a playmaker for my team. I can play both the point guard and shooting guard and I can guard multiple positions.” All these abilities McWard proved throughout his time on the NY2LA Basketball Association. He was not just one of the best shooters on the 16U level, but on the entire association. 

There are several programs that are recruiting McWard currently. These include Army, Belmont, Rice, and Princeton. If McWard continues this high level of play this spring, expect many more division one programs to show interest in him.
