Givens talks finalists

In a previous interview with On3, Curtis Givens broke down his finalists.

Georgia Tech: “They have a history of guards. Looking back, they’re like Guard University. Coach (Damon) Stoudamire was a guard in the NBA. He is a point guard coach, and that means a lot to me. The facilities were great, real nice. The biggest takeaway for me was that everything on campus was real close. You didn’t have to go too far for anything, school, working out, anything.”

LSU: “Coach Matt (McMahon) has a history of developing great guards. When he was at Murray State, they had Ja Morant, and they had Cameron Payne. He’s a point guard coach who puts the ball in his point guard’s hands and lets them control the tempo.”

Indiana: “I saw the way they developed Jalen Hood-Schifino. He’s a Montverde guard, but he’s a product of Indiana, so that really stood out for me. He was just the 17th pick in the draft.”

Texas: “I have a pretty good relationship with that staff. They called me the other week and told me that I’m actually the only point guard they’re recruiting for my class. So that really stood out to me, how much they believe in me and my game. Watching them this year, Texas likes to play in transition, and that is a big part of my game; whether I’m finding open guys or getting to the hole or knocking down open jump shots. I feel like I fit well in that environment.”

Memphis: “I have a pretty good relationship with them, we talk on a daily basis. They just tell me how much they would love for me to be a Tiger and they think I can be the next great point guard to come through there. Penny (Hardaway) means everything to Memphis kids. He was one of the greats from Memphis and went on to have a great NBA career. So it means a lot to have a good relationship with him.

Scouting Report

“Curtis Givens is a skilled and confident lead guard. He has smooth three-point range that extends well beyond the arc. While he will need to continue developing his explosion, he can get to his spots, off the bounce, in the half-court, and has good floor vision. Givens is a modern type guard who can score and facilitate. He should track among the top in his class.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
