With solid showings at two recent events, Timothy Ambrose is starting to see the benefits of playing well in his senior season. The 6-foot, 205-pound combo guard from Our Savior New American (N.Y.) has opened some eyes on the recruiting front in the process.
After playing well at the National Prep School Tip-Off (averaging over 22 points a game) and at the Bull City Classic, where he scored 28 points in defeat to Community Christian School (Ga.), Ambrose hopes he has made a statement with his game.
His coaches at OSNA call him "one of the best scorers in the country" and the running back look alike guard is proving that so far.
"I look at every game as a challenge," Ambrose said. "I know I'm going to have to adapt my game to who I'm playing and I feel like I can do my best against anyone that I'm going to play against."
Prior to the season, Ambrose said he has been hearing from the likes of Stony Brook, Farleigh Dickinson, Central Connecticut State and Hartford while schools like LaSalle, Villanova and St. John's are peeking around, too.
Ambrose said he's still awaiting word on his test results, thus putting things on pause for the time being. However, with a passing test score, Ambrose could be a nice steal for a mid-major school in the late signing period.
