Ricky Council


Ricky Council

I was very impressed with this kid. He has come a long way from the athletic kid who wore the goggles earlier in his career. He works extremely hard off the ball, knocks down shots, and can finish above the rim and in the mid range. I am curious why he is staying at Northern Durham, they are not a very good team.

His game impressed me more so than the Outlaw kid. There is a lot of single player talent in that conference...

RE: Ricky Council

I know his whole family. Sister is a standout as a true freshmen. And his two youngest brothers play aau. And knowing Ricky personally, he is a well mannered kid. Probably is staying at Northern for the better. He belongs at an ACC powerhouse. best of luck to him!

RE: Ricky Council

northern has a very good and experienced coach.there is no reason to leave.he can get exposure over the summer,but learn how to play at northern. AAU teaches me first and team 2nd.The summer should be for improving your game not just playing.You get better in the gym working to strengthen your strengths and eliminating your weaknesses.There is no benefit to leaving b/c most recruiting is done in the summer.If he trusts the coach then stay

RE: Ricky Council

Acc powerhouse? Come on man! No. Good player yes. And why is every good player expected to leave their home school. I get so tired of that dumb talk. . Worst part is that players and parents will believe that stupid mess.

RE: Ricky Council

ACC schools have been contacting him for 2 years, but im wrong your right, go play with legos.

RE: Ricky Council

On top of that, in his class he's in everybodys top 5 or 10 in the state, imagine if he was at word of god or somewhere the exposure he'd get, hes being selfless staying at Northern, perhaps I exaggerated that he 'belongs' but he most certainly can play.

RE: Ricky Council

If he is that good he doesn't need WOG or any school like that. Prime example, see Gary Clark at Clayton. Getting all the looks he needs.

RE: Ricky Council

Here we go with the "exposure" lie. Go tell an uninformed parent of a talented kid in aau that mess. . But don't sing that lie here. He is one of the better players in PAC 6. IMO not acc caliber but hope he proves me wrong. D 2 or mid major maybe. Is he a 6'7 or better athletic wing? Is he a true pt guard w jet speed? Is he a big combo guard that rarely misses from 3? Is he a post guy. If answer is " not really" then he isn't acc yet. Again wog gets exposure cause the players they recruit are good enough not cause of the school. If a kid at northern is good enough you and everyone won't have any doubt and they certainly won't need to transfer to realize it.

RE: Ricky Council

I played d1 sports, exposure is pretty important. I don't know you, but you seem pretty tight on this topic so we'll just let it be. Enjoy your forum hunting good sir!

RE: Ricky Council

there are so many talented players out there that sometimes kids get overlooked, thats just the nature of the beast but i agree with db33lockdown if you play in the backwoods of appalachian mountains and your dropping 30 a game they will find you.

RE: Ricky Council

Oh definitely, this state is known to be a top basketball state
