When 2010 four-star prospect Phil Pressey's father Paul Pressey left the Boston Celtics to be an assistant with the New Orleans Hornets, Pressey headed south from Massachusetts to play at Episcopal School of Dallas. Through 12 games, Pressey has been exceptional.
"Phil is playing really well," said Episcopal School head coach Corey Henderson. "He's made the transition and is doing his thing.
"He's really been shooting the ball well. That is the thing that the college coaches who have come in to see him have commented on. They say his shooting is getting better. Phil has always been a good shooter, but now he is a more consistent shooter."
A healthy group of coaches have been watching Pressey, a 5-foot-10, 155-pound point guard. According to Coach Henderson, LSU, Oklahoma, Missouri, Florida, Arizona State, Texas and Baylor have all come to watch Pressey and have offered a scholarship.
As far as head coaches go, LSU's Trent Johnson has been to several games, and Baylor's Scott Drew has caught a game this year.
Kentucky and Tennessee are staying in touch but have not been to Houston in person yet.
Leading Episcopal School to a 10-2 record against some impressive competition, Pressey is averaging 19 points, 12 assists, five rebounds and seven steals per game.
Pressey is the No. 42 ranked prospect in the class of 2010.
