Edgewater (FL) High School easily took care of Calhoun Co. (SC) High School 80-56 as Memphis commitment Darius Washington scored 29 points and had 10 steals.
Washington almost matched his steal total with 9 turnovers in a wild, up and down game.
Calhoun Co. was led by Georgia Tech bound Zam Fredrick with 26 points. The only problem being that he shot 9 of 29 from the field and 1 of 14 from behind the arc.
6-foot-2 point guard Brandon Johnson played a solid 23 minutes for Coach Travis Jones with 13 points on 5 of 5 shooting from the field and 2 of 2 shooting from the line. Despite the three that he hit, Coach Jones said it is his suspect jumper that is limiting him to mid-major interest.
“He is a very good player, and he has qualified academically,” said Coach Jones. But it is his lack of outside shooting ability that is limiting him to mid-major attention. He is hearing from Northeastern, UCF, and Fordham.”
Another intriguing player for Edgewater is 6-foot-8 2005 prospect Quintin Thornton.
“The question with Quintin is whether or not he will qualify,” said Coach Jones. “He is very athletic and getting letters from everybody, but he is not much of a scorer. St. Joseph’s has actually offered, but most schools are waiting to see what happens academically. If he qualifies, I think there are some schools that will take a chance on him just for his athleticism.”
Thornton listed St. Joseph’s, Purdue, and Texas as schools he is interested in.
Football sensation Kenny Ingram displayed his athleticism quite a few times, but Coach Jones said it is very unlikely he will be on the hardwood next year.
“He will just play football, probably at Florida State. It is just so hard to play both, and he is such a good football player.”
