Hamilton Guard Adds First D1 Offer


Posted On: 06/7/18 4:07 PM

Early June is a wonderful time for rising juniors to gain their first DI offer.  After lunch Thursday exciting news splashed for Pharaoh Elite 16u guard Delvin White (PrepHoopsTN #19).

“Memphis Pharaoh Elite guard Delvin White has received his first D1 offer from UT Martin,” shared Team Pharaoh Elite 16u AAU Coach Chris Adams via direct message.

UT Martin has a habit of recruiting Memphis talent.  Former Mr. Basketball Finalist Parrish Hewitt signed with the Skyhawks out of Douglass High.  UTM junior-to-be Mike Fofana picked UT Martin as a Whitehaven senior forward.

Senior Fatodd Lewis played his high school days with Raleigh-Egypt.

Also, the junior college players UTM Head Coach Anthony Stewart typically recruits often hail from Memphis originally.  Associate Head Coach Jermaine Johnson lured several Memphis-born junior college players to the Martin campus.

Role Reversal

With Hamilton High School, Delvin White played more of a four-man this past winter.  Coach Adams, who coaches the Hamilton High girls team, sees Delvin as a point guard.

Coach Adams likes Delvin as a top 10 player statewide.  With his mix of athleticism and size for the position of guard he has a strong case.

PrepHoopsTN featured Delvin and his AAU team last month.

With Team Pharaoh Elite Delvin is considered a team leader.  He couples with Jesse Payne (Whitehaven) in the backcourt.

Currently Delvin lacks any other DI interest.

“Not yet,” said Coach Adams.  “It’s coming.”
