In his junior campaign, Kingston’s RJ Weeks broke on to the scene in Oklahoma small-school basketball. Weeks served as a focal point in Kingston’s push to its first 3A State Championship Final appearance in school history. Though the Redskins fell short to Star-Spencer in overtime, Weeks hopes to lead the senior-heavy roster to a Gold Ball this season.
Weeks, a 6-foot-4-inch point guard, is a floor general, offensively. He sees the floor very well and is not afraid to get to the rim or even get a put-back dunk.
“The ability to create and make plays for others (is important),” says Weeks of his game.
Weeks is sneaky athletic and does not hesitate to lay his body on the line in order for his team to succeed. He has good handles and does not give up costly turnovers. Weeks plays with a high motor and goes everywhere he needs to go on the floor to help his team succeed. He plays the point guard position the way you want to see it played. His play has been pivotal in Kingston’s rise to being one of the best small-school programs in Oklahoma in recent years.
“I’m a gym rat that works on all parts of my craft,” says Weeks. “I take pride in my leadership ability on and off the court.”
Weeks has yet to receive an official offer but has been extended some interest from Southeastern Oklahoma State University (Durant, Okla.) and the University of Central Oklahoma (Edmond, Okla.), both top Division II programs within the State of Oklahoma. Weeks hopes that his work on the offseason will help his recruiting progress throughout this year.
“I’ve worked to improve on the quickness of my jumper,” says weeks. “I’m working on getting stronger and keeping handles as sharp as possible.”
Weeks participated in the University of Central Oklahoma’s Elite Individual Camp earlier this August and put on a stellar performance, competing with some of the top players from across the State.
Weeks, who holds a 4.03 GPA in the classroom, has prepared himself for when coaches knock on the door, and his play speaks for itself.
