When eyeing Curtis Stinson at the ABCD camp, one could be deceived. It didn't look like the Curtis Stinson of last year. This Curtis Stinson is a much more diversified offensive player.
For most of Stinson's career, he has made his living driving the baseline and scoring over big bodies. But many coaches wanted to see an improvement in Stinson's perimeter game. Well, Stinson has improved. "He has worked on it all spring and summer," said his high school coach Mike Byrnes of The Winchendon School in Massachusetts. "Look at him now. He is a much better player."
Stinson leads everyone at the camp by hitting 67 percent of his shots. He is also averaging 17 points a game.
Stinson, a bruising 6-2, 205-pound point guard from The Winchendon School in Massachusetts, is a native of the Bronx. He is extremely physically mature and possesses excellent strength at the point guard position. Stinson has good vision and uses his strength to bully smaller defenders off the dribble.
Stinson, who averaged 19 points and 7 assists this past season, has attracted the interest of Rutgers, Memphis, Hofstra, and Drexel among others.
