2013, Zach Lavine can put numbers up in a hurry. When you see Lavine play, you notice he is on a whole different level than anyone else on the court. Bouncing back from an injury that occurred last spring, Lavine put on a show throughout the high school year to let everyone know, he’s back.
Coaches from all over the country are targeting Lavine. The young man has offers from almost every Pac-12 school, Gonzaga, Baylor, Texas, and Louisville. After the summer is over, expect many more offers to roll in. Gonzaga has made Lavine their #1 priority for 2013.
Listed at 6’0 on many sites, it looks like Lavine has grown some (6’1-’6’2). He has also filled in some but is still skinny. What is so special about Lavine is he can create his own shot and has a quick release. He can also take it to the rack but will need to put on a bit more muscle to draw contact on a daily basis at the college level and beyond.
Lavine displays nice court vision and gets his teammates involved. At the college level, Lavine will most likely move over to the SG or he could just be a score first PG. Whoever lands the guard out of Bothell High School will be getting a great player who loves playing the game of basketball and who is getting good coaching at the AAU level. Lavine plays for legendary coach Jim Marsh who coaches Friends of Hoop.
