Prospect Spotlight: 2019 Wony’a Singleton
One of the better looking sleepers in Southern California is Wony’a Singleton out of Peninsula High School. The 5-foot-10 junior is a chiseled point guard prospect who can score and set up teammates with equal aplomb.
He pushes the ball well in the open court and his head is always up. He can shoot the deep 3-ball or rip a crossover to set up the drive and kick to an open teammate.
“I feel my skills are coming around where I can help my team win executing the pass as well as my shot.”
Singleton plays with moxie as well and is not afraid of the moment. During tight games he has the poise to take the big shot and has been clutch on more than one occasion. Defensively, he has quick hands and solid lateral quickness.
There are areas though that need attention going forward for Singleton’s development—Consistency with the jump shot and finishing in the lane over length. The burst to get by his opponent is evident, but he needs to improve his ability to finish with either hand and expand his bag of tricks (floater/runner) to take his game to another level.
With Singleton’s ascension in the past year, it would not surprise me to see some coaches from the Big Sky and Big West start flocking to Peninsula’s gym in the future.
