Bolingbrook 2016 point guard Devon Sams is a strong and stocky guard that is tough as nails. He is powerful getting in the lane and to the basket. His mid-range jumper showed well throughout the month of July. Sams is a good distributor getting his teammates involved. On the defensive end he pressures the ball and is aggressive.
We spoke with the rising sophomore who is coming off a big July with the Illinois Celtics on the circuit. He played up quite a bit on their talented 16U squad.
“Playing up definitely got me ready for high school ball with the speed and tougher competition. Working on my jump shot. Against my age getting to the rim is easy so I want to work on everything else with my jump shot and mid-range game.”
Bolingbrook is loaded this upcoming season with Sams, Gage Davis, and Prentiss Nixon in their backcourt. They also have Kenny Williams and Julian Torres to anchor the paint who both have division one scholarship offers. What is he looking forward this season?
“I want us to get a regional title. After that we will see what happens.”
