2018 6'6 WF Leon Perry was special on Saturday for Team Carroll. His size, length, and athleticism added a great boost to the guard heavy group and lead to their route of the Southern Illinois Storm. Leon attends Confluence prep academy in Downtown St. Louis where he put up impressive numbers all year long. After Team Carroll's win over the Storm, I caught up with Leon:
AW: For someone who hasn't seen you play before, how would you describe your game?
LP: I would describe my game at good at finding the ball coming off the rim. A wing forward who is comfortable in the post but I can play on the wing as well.
AW: How do you feel you played last game and can college coaches find you here with Team Carroll throughout the rest of the summer?
LP: I feel I played well, I didn't attempt to do too much, new team and all. Yeah, I like this team. I'll be here.
AW: If you could go anywhere in the country, where would it be?
LP: My dream school is North Carolina. I met Roy Williams at Peach Jam last year.
LEON does hold division 1 interest from multiple programs, however they're awaiting his test results and other academic related matters. If Leon can handle his business in the class-room, he'll have no problem finding his way onto a LM-MM roster following high school.
