Like a Matt Bouldin, Greivis Vasquez of Montrose Christian High School in Rockville, Md., has the mentality and skill level of a high-major point guard in the body of a wing player. Arguably the best passer at this summer's Nike All American Camp, Vasquez, 6-foot-5, 179-pounds and originally from Venezuela, has four schools in hot pursuit of him according to his high school coach Stu Vetter.
"Greivis has developed into one of the top guards in the country," said Coach Vetter. "I expect all the top programs to recruit him. Right now the main schools recruiting him are Gonzaga, Georgia Tech, Maryland and North Carolina State among others. All four of those schools have offered him."
Vasquez, the No. 62 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, spent the past weekend on the Maryland campus on an unofficial visit, but Coach Vetter had not had a chance yet to speak with him about the visit. Coach Vetter did not want to reveal any other visitation dates, but he did talk more about Vasquez' game.
"He is unique in that he is 6'5 and is a true point guard who can also play the wing," said Vetter. "He gives you rebounding, and he has very good court awareness. He also plays with a lot of passion."
Although many of Vetter's players have been known to sign late, Vetter did say that Vasquez has expressed interest in signing early.
Greivis Vasquez scouting report:
Highly competitive and with a flair to his game, Vasquez sees the floor and passes with the best of them. Along with his point guard skills, he has the size to play multiple perimeter positions. Shoots the ball well enough to keep the defense honest but prefers to slash to the basket where he can both make the tough pass on the move or finish the tough shot. He does need to gain strength and improve quickness to defend at the high-major level.
