Dereon Seabron is one of the top unsigned senior prospects at the National Prep Showcase. The Massanutten Military Academy (VA) guard had an 18 point performance against St. Thomas More. He was happy with how he and his team played as the game progressed.
“I was trying to do anything to help my team get the win,” said Seabron. “In the first half, we weren’t hitting shots so in the second half we started hitting shots and cut down on the turnovers.”
Seabron identifies his knack for getting to the rim and making plays for his teammates as his strengths.
“My strengths are driving to the basket and getting my teammates involved,” he said. “I’m working on getting my shot better, getting more consistent and getting stronger.”
A lot of high major schools are prioritizing him with some extending offers and others showing high interest.
“It’s going very well, some offers I have are from Minnesota, VCU, SMU, Providence, and interest from Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech and Georgia,” Seabron said.
He has gone on official visits to East Carolina, Minnesota and VCU thus far. Seabron felt at home on his visit to VCU.
“VCU, it was a very good visit and they made me feel like I was home,” said Seabron. “That’s close to my home too with VCU being in Richmond. They just want me to be their point guard.”
Minnesota is looking to have him commit in the near future, but it looks like he will take his time with his decision.
“The Minnesota visit went well, I’m looking into them but right now I’m going to wait till the late signing period,” he said.
Seabron sees three schools recruiting him the hardest right now.
“Right now it’s got to be Oklahoma State, Providence, and VCU,” Seabron said.
Oklahoma State has yet to extend an offer to him yet, but are still making him a priority.
“They want me to come in and play the one and the two to be a combo guard there,” said Seabron.
Noah Hutchins, a class of 2019 PG from The Park School (NY), has picked up an offer from UC Riverside.
