Montverde assistant: De La Rosa a 'true center'

Just got off the phone with Montverde assistant AD/basketball coach Alton Clark, who gave the GPP a scouting report of FIU hoops' latest recruit, Joey De La Rosa. Hoping to talk to the recruit himself this afternoon.

Here’s Clark:

"This is his first year with us. He’s originally from the Bronx. A 6-11 center, really skilled, a traditional post player. In today’s game, it’s hard to find true centers anymore. You can put him on the block, likes to bang down low, use the jump-hook. I think FIU is getting a really good player.

"Joey provides a lot of energy. He’s from the East Coast. They play a different brand of basketball than everyone else. Physical, without being out of control. I think [FIU] did a really good job of communicating with Joey, how he will fit into the offense, fit into the offense. I think they did a really good job of nailing him down.

"He had interest from Big East schools like St. John’s and Georgetown. He had offers from FIU, Manhattan, UCF. FAU showed some interest too."
