If there's one thing that never gets old, it's seeing kids with physical talent put the rest of their game together. That's the case with high flying Dominique Pointer.
A native of Detroit, the 6-foot-5 small forward showed flashes of brilliance during his junior season at Winston-Salem (NC) Quality Education Academy. But, he also had stretches where he was a bit out of control.
This summer, Pointer took his game to a new level as he showed a much more complete game on the travel circuit while playing with The Family and then at events like the King City Classic and Global Challenge.
While he's still a guy who uses his athleticism to make lots of things happen, "Ziggy" as he's affectionately known has also improved his jumper and become a much better handler. Perhaps most importantly, he has emerged as one of the premier perimeter defenders in the class of 2011.
That hasn't gone unnoticed by college coaches and Pointer's mentor/coach Karl Weaver checked in with a current list.
"He's got West Virginia, Tennessee, St. John's, Purdue, Arkansas, Michigan and the University of Detroit," Weaver told Rivals.com. "That's pretty much all of them."
According to Weaver, Pointer -- who is currently ranked #81 in the class of 2011 -- will be setting official visits very soon.
