Grant Billmeier, a 6-10, 230 pound power forward/center from St. Patrick H.S. in Elizabeth, N.J., will be one of the more sought after big men in the Class of 2003.
Although he is a bit mechanical and lacks fluidity, Billmeier is a good rebounder and solid passer for a big man. He is still working on his offensive skills, and how much he develops those in the coming months could dictate exactly where Billmeier winds up on the high Division I spectrum.
St. Patrick Head Coach Kevin Boyle said that Rutgers, Seton Hall, Villanova, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Purdue and Wake Forest have expressed the most interest in Billmeier thus far.
IR will keep you posted on Billmeier in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned.
