Currently Idaho’s 10th-ranked 2019, 6-foot-3 point guard Amoro Lado will have a big 2018, and could see some accolades and recruitment start flooding in.
The Vallivue junior spent his 16U season playing some with Portland’s Team Fast, an EYBL team, and that’s better prepared him for his season with the Falcons.
We recently caught up with the talented floor general, and he defined his skill-set to PHID.
“I’m a dynamic guard and I can get to the basket anytime I want. I make my teammates better both on the offensive and defensive side,” said Lado. “My strengths are getting to the basket and passing. Also on and off ball defense; I can guard positions one through five.”
He says his junior season has had some bumps in the road, but overall, he’s happy with how things have been going.
“My junior season at Vallivue has went well, but we have hit a few speed bumps. But the team is doing well, we are in a perfect position,” he said. “We’re very young and have a lot of raw talent.”
He added: “My goals for this season are to work hard and do my best to try and help my team get back to the Idaho Center and hang a banner. And an individual goal is, I’d like to be all-state first-team.”
When his junior season is complete, he’ll move right into his 17U season, and will again play with Team Fast EYBL from Portland.
This spring and summer, Lado could see his recruitment spike.
“I currently have no offers but lots of interest. The most recent college I’ve been talked to is the College Of Sequoias (JuCo),” said Lado.
“My recruitment goals for the next 12 months is to earn a couple D1 offers by the end of the summer.”
