It was a productive summer for Dylan Sullivan. The all-around 6-foot-6, 190-pound guard from Walla Walla joined up with Team Fly Williams on the AAU circuit and played hoops at a very high level, made good friends, and overall had a fun time. As a result of his play, Sullivan has seen colleges at many levels show interest in him and now that AAU ball is done, he’s waiting on some possible offers to consider.
We caught up with Sullivan at the Premier Summer Championships in Salem the second weekend of the July live evaluation period, a tournament where he was able to showcase his all-around skills. “I’m going to the basket pretty hard, getting some dunks, and hitting some threes,” Sullivan said. “I’ve been working on a lot of handles. Being a 6-6 guard you’ve got a lot of little guards on you.”
Sullivan’s combination of size and skills in the backcourt has a number of colleges – at varying levels – showing interest. In Salem, Sullivan mentioned Cal Poly, Nevada, and Portland as some schools who had been in contact. At his games in July, coaches from those schools in addition to Utah State, Idaho State, LSU, Loyola Marymount, Arizona State, Santa Clara, Princeton, Brown, Point Loma Nazarene, and Cal State Monterey Bay are just some of the many who have been on the sidelines watching him play.
All of the interest has been welcome to Sullivan, who is keeping an open mind about everything at stage of the process – even when it comes to whether or not he’ll sign early if given the opportunity. “I’m looking to stay on the West Coast,” Sullivan said. “Just whatever fits me. I want to see what happens and what’s best for me.”
Sullivan and his Team Fly Williams teammates finished the AAU season with a 34-13 record.
