LAWRENCE, Kan. — One of the state’s most underrated college prospects, Lawrence 6’7 2019 wing play Savonni Shazor has the kind of size and length that cause college programs to take notice.
Shazor brings terrific size and length to the floor and has deep range that extends well beyond the high school 3-point mark and is a versatile defender, capable of disrupting things on the perimeter with his length, or challenging shots in the paint.
He spent the summer competing for Team KC and says he took his game to new heights.
“I had to expand my game and become more of an attacker getting to the rim and drawing fouls,” he says. “Mainly I have been working on my athletic ability and sharpening my handle daily.”
Shazor says Lawrence is primed for a big season with several players returning for varsity experience for the Lions.
“We have a lot of talented offensive players with varsity experience,” he says. “We also of defensive potential, it will be really hard to matchup with us.”
Shazor says his mom has had the biggest influence on his basketball career to date.
“She wants me to be successful and it’s a great feeling when you have someone in your corner,” he said.
A fan of NBA guards Austin Rivers and Trae Young.
“They both are really good at changing speeds and getting to their spots or all the way to the hoop,” Shazor said.
Shazor holds an offer from Colby Community College and has drawn interest from Georgia Southern, Cleveland State, Pittsburg State, Bethel College, William Penn University, Dodge City CC, Mid America Nazarene, Broward College and Grandview University.
