Neysmith picks up ACC offer

Braced to compete in the Georgia Final Four, Tony Neysmith of Norcross High School, is listing seven schools. Out of those seven schools, Neysmith, a 6-foot-4, 196-pound junior point guard, has picked up his first offer.
"My top seven are Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Georgia," said Neysmith. "Virginia has offered me, but I do not have a leader right now. I'm still open and will not narrow down my list until I start taking visits."
Ranked as the No. 69 prospect in the class of 2007, Neysmith is averaging 10 points, 5 assists and 5 blocks per game for the loaded Norcross squad.
When he does take his visits, Neysmith knows what he will be looking for.
"I'm looking for a nice community and a coach that is easy to get to know and talk to," he said. "I would like to play in an up and down system, but I will go wherever I feel I fit in best."
A slasher with the ball who is physical in the paint and can set up his teammates, Neysmith is also a tough defender who can pick up rebounds on the defensive end. His focus throughout the off season will be improving his outside jumper.
"I'm going to continue to work on my jumper," he said. "I plan to put in a lot of work after the season. I want to get better at everything, but my jumper is a point of emphasis."
Neysmith's father and AAU coach with the Georgia Hurricanes is also looking to expand his son's game during the AAU season.
"I plan on using Tony off the ball some this year because I want to see him get more aggressive offensively while still creating for his teammates," said Coach Neysmith. "Defensively, he has a chance to be a lock down defender."
