After an impressive junior season and an offseason spent with an ultra-talented Cornsharks 17U squad, Bondurant-Farrar guard Dylon Storey has seen his recruitment rise.
Currently the 6-foot-4 2016 is seeing some small school interest, but hopes to see some larger schools get in the mix soon.
“No offers at the moment, but it’s starting to pick up. Grand View is interested, Coe really wants to get me on campus, also Simpson, Buena Vista, and Briar Cliff, and some other smaller schools like that,” said Storey. “I’m hoping to get some interest from some bigger schools and seeing what different things are out there for me.”
“I took a visit to Simpson to see what they were like, and I’ll probably take a visit to Coe for sure and I’d like to get to Grand View.”
As a role player on a very talented Cornsharks squad, Storey said he was able to fine-tune some areas of his game that he otherwise wouldn't have.
“I played a different role with that team than I would with my high school team, so it was a chance for me to work on different parts of my game,” said Storey. “I worked on my rebounding and defense and that kind of stuff outside of my scoring and that kind of thing.”
One of the more dominant players in 3A last season, Storey led his team in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals. He says his role will be a lot the same this season.
“I like to get to the rim a lot, but I can also shoot it a little bit, I worked a lot this summer on shooting off the dribble and doing that kind of thing. I’ll be the leader of the team this season, and I’ll do a little bit of everything for the team,” said Storey.
A well-rounded athlete, Storey is currently in football-mode, as the quarterback for the Bluejays. He says he’s undecided on which sport he’ll pursue at the next level.
“It’s kind of just whichever is in season pretty much, but once I get to college I’ll just pick one or the other and stick to it,” said Storey. “But basketball is the sport that I’m receiving the most interest in at the moment.”
