Black seems back to himself

When five-star combo forward Leron Black took the floor earlier in the spring, he didn't quite seem himself.

Nagged by one injury after another, the rising senior either couldn't play or seemed to lack some of the explosiveness and aggressiveness that he has played with in the past.

As July's live evaluation period nears, the 6-foot-7 combo forward from Memphis (Tenn.) White Station looks to have things clicking.

Most importantly, Black is healthy again. Operating at 100 percent, his trademark motor is able to run strong and he's able to be a force on the glass. He is outstanding along the baseline, plays tough on both ends of the floor, and most importantly he's improved as a jump shooter. No, his jumper isn't textbook. But, he makes them at a good clip and doesn't seem to have any trouble getting them off.

The top 25 prospect runs the grassroots circuit with Team Thad and is highly coveted by Baylor (where he was once committed), Florida, Illinois, Ohio State, Tennessee, Connecticut and others.
