Tyronn King Sweepstakes 1.0
2015 6’1″ Tyronn King is a combo guard at Arlington Country Day in Jacksonville, Florida. Currently ranked 21st overall in the North Pole Rankings.
Former West Hill Collegiate Institute student from Scarborough, Ontario spoke with HHC about his transition this past year at Arlington,
“As a team we have had a few losses that shouldn’t have happened but we are just looking to move forward from them” King said about his teams success.
As for individual success, “I’m on a roster loaded with all seniors and 4 current commits (all gaurds ). I try to come off the bench and impact the game any way I can” King in his junior season admitted.
Tyronn King is another in the long line of Canadian hoop stars playing the U.S. The 6’1 170 lbs. PG prospect says “It would be great to play at the college level with my fellow Canadian highflyer Jamar Ergas, we’ve been playing together for a number of years now and know each other’s game like the back of our hands.”
No visits have been set yet for Tyronn but he says “Some will be planned soon though.”
What does the privilege of participating in a prestige event like the 2014 Spalding Hoop Hall Classic mean to him?
“It is great to be able to participate in an event filled with the best teams & players in the country” King commented.
Last but not least where can we expect to see Tyronn toss it up for AAU?
“I’m currently not sure 100 %, going to find the best fit come spring… weather it’s a Southern based team or a Canadian based team.”
King as a youth in Toronto broke the TDSB record for most points in an elementary school game with 79.
Sunday @ 2:30 PM Arlington Country Day will draw St.Benedicts Prep in Springfield, MA. It will mark the first head to head match at the 2014 Spalding Hoop Hall Classic. 2015 Kamar McKnight will be on the other side representing his Gray Bees of St.Bens.
