In just a few short years, Isaac Pitts, Jr., has built Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy into a program that produces lots of college prospects. This year, St. John's bound Sir'Dominic Pointer, Wake Forest pledge Anthony Fields and unsigned senior Lekan Ajayi headline Pitts' squad.
However, Pitts also wants to be sure that people know about a trio of guys that he doesn't get to play a lot, just yet, but thinks highly of.
At the recent Hoops-In-Overdrive Shootout, Pitts was effusive in his praise of freshman big man Jordan Robinson, 2013 PG Tevin Findlay and 2012 SG Benji Bell.
"I need to make sure these guys get some pub," joked Pitts. "I don't get to play them a lot yet, but people should know about them."
A six-foot-eight big man with good hands, a solid frame and a solid skill level, Robinson is a native of Canada. He's pretty powerful for a prospect his age and he doesn't shy away from playing against older players.
"I think that people are going to see him be a four man," said Pitts. "We have other options on offense and a lot of guys so he just doesn't get much of a chance to show it yet."
Also hailing from Canada is the 6-foot-3 Findlay. The sophomore is skinny, but handles pretty well and has excellent size and good quickness for the position. Like any young guy, he can be shaky with pressure, but the potential is there.
"He's got good size and he can really handle the ball," Pitts told Rivals.com. "Some people won't believe it, but he's a real point guard."
Then there is Bell, a 6-foot-1 shooting specialist. The slender SG has good range, a scorer's feel and a nice looking shot.
"He's a shooter," said Pitts. "He can make shots and doesn't force things."
