With the live period set to kick off this weekend, it’s time for time to embrace the chaos that the AAU season brings. For 2019 Calvert Hall guard Logan Curtis, he’s looking to show college coaches around the country how much he’s improved since last summer.
As a team, Calvert Hall struggled mightily this past season due to massive roster changes with some of their main pieces, but Curtis and 2018 guard Brendan Adams (UConn commit) made the Cardinals respectable every time they set foot on the floor.
“We worked hard all season,” Curtis explained. “We went through some tough losses in the beginning of the season, but we fought back and made the playoffs in both the MIAA and BCL. We came to practice and went hard every day and that’s why I love those guys. We’re going to come back stronger next year.”
Curtis was an obvious staple for the Cardinals this past season averaging 15 points, six rebounds and three assists per game. With Adams leaving and former teammate Montez Mathis (2020) transferring, Curtis will be looked at as the go-to guy throughout his senior season. That makes this spring/summer even more important aside from the obvious recruitment focuses.
“I want to show my athleticism more on the court,” Logan said. “I want to show coaches I can get up, score it and handle the ball a little bit.”
An obvious improvement with Curtis since last summer has been the development of his body. The 6-foot-3 guard is beginning to fill out and put on muscle, which benefits his playing style tremendously. Curtis plays like Dwyane Wade in the sense that he can slash and finish around the hoops efficiently. He embraces contact and is effective at getting to the charity stripe. But he isn’t just a one-way player. Curtis is one of the best on-ball defenders in the Baltimore area. His ability to anticipate and stay committed through long possessions will be two key characteristics that translate well in college.
At the moment, he holds offers from North Carolina A&T and Siena, but is gaining interest from Lehigh and Delaware.
What can a college program expect to get with Curtis?
“Great effort and a leader,” Logan said confidently.
