2011 prospect Daniel Sapp leads his Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast squad into an elimination playoff game tonight. With his junior season nearing its end, Sapp's recruitment is poised to take off.
Playing off the ball with senior Jelani Hewitt running the point, Sapp is leading his team in scoring with 21 points per game to go along with six rebounds and four assists per game. During the travel circuit season, however, Sapp will be running the show at the point for Team Breakdown.
"At 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, Daniel is a great point guard prospect with his athleticism," said Kenny Gillion of Team Breakdown. "After Austin Rivers, there isn't a better lead guard prospect in the state in terms of potential. Daniel is already a ferocious scorer. He just needs the ball in his hands, so he can show his decision making skills."
Several schools are already convinced Sapp can help them. Nebraska, Old Dominion, Murray State, Florida Atlantic and Georgia Southern have offered. Alabama is also showing strong interest.
Once more schools get a look at Sapp's athletic and diverse game this spring, Gillion expects his recruitment to take off.
