Ty Bevins is the No. 73 player in the updated 2024 On3 150. Maxpreps says the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 5.8 assists for Brandywine (MD) Gwynn Park last season while shooting 51 percent from the field.

“I’m a guard, a big guard,” Bevins told On3. “I pass the ball very well. Find my teammates, and get everybody involved. I can see spots open up, and I get my baskets. I watch a lot of LeBron (James) with his IQ and vision, his ability to get to the basket and swing the rock out, out to the corners,”

The productive guard played with the New World program this summer on the Adidas 3SSB 16u Circuit, where college programs started to prioritize the four-star. On3 caught up with Ty Bevins at the DMV Elite 80 to talk about the current state of his recruitment.

“Right now, I have offers from Temple, George Mason, Georgetown, and College of Charleston,” Bevins said.

Bevins talks recruitment

Georgetown: “They’re telling me how my game fits with how they play. That if I go there, they’re gonna let me showcase what I can do. Coach (Kevin) Nickelberry is talking to me. They really love me.”

Temple: “Like Georgetown, they have a former NBA player as their head coach {Aaron McKie}. They just want to plug me into their system as quickly as possible. They like my IQ and ability to pass.

George Mason: “I know they’re a tough program, and they are getting a lot of DMV area guys to stay home. I went on a (unofficial) visit there recently; I like the environment and the coaches. They showed love.”

In Bevins words

“I’ll be looking at the fit,” Bevins said. “I want to play the one position in college and I want to be recruited as a one. I want to showcase what I can do and be one of the best players in college basketball.

“I’ll look at how they play; the schools play style. I want to play at a quick pace. Get up and down the floor, make quick decisions, and be able to run and gun.

On3’s take

Ty Bevins has a great frame and size for the guard position. At 6-foot-5, he has long arms and broad shoulders. Bevins has a smooth jump shot with range that extends beyond the three-point arc. His mechanics are solid and repeatable, both off the bounce or the catch. Bevins is also an excellent passer. He has natural floor vision, with touch to deliver passes from different angles all over the floor. Bevins can play on or off the ball and act as a primary initiator or a secondary initiator. He will need to continue adding strength, working on footwork, and consistent balance, but there is a lot to like here as Bevins is still young (an ’06 birthday) for his grade.
