The No. 67 ranked prospect in the class of 2007 Tyrone Shelley has put up some spectacular numbers this season. The 6-foot-6, 190-pound small forward from Crawford High School in San Diego, Calif., also has a high number of colleges hot on his trail, but he doesn't plan to narrow his list until after the summer.
As (20-8) Crawford enters the playoffs, Shelley is averaging 28.2 points, 12.5 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 3 blocks per game. His biggest scoring totals of the year are a 76 point outburst against an overmatched Canadian team and a 39 point total in a 16 point loss to five-star prospect Chase Budinger's team.
Shelley's school list of Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, San Diego State, USC, UCLA and Washington is not going to get any shorter any time soon according to Crawford coach Terry Tucker.
"Tyrone should begin to narrow down his list after the summer," noted Tucker, who continued to comment on Shelley's development. "His outside shot has improved a ton this year. He is also moving without the ball better, and just getting better all around.
"Physically he is ready and just needs to naturally progress. With another year of high school, he'll be ready to play right away.
"He has been getting up at 5:30 in the morning and shooting in the gym. He is one of the most competitive players I have ever been around."
