Since Ryan Conway stepped on the floor as a freshman, he has been proving why he is one of the most natural scorers in the DMV area. It took less than two seasons for the 6-foot-1 Dulaney guard to surpass the 1,000-point mark. This past season as a sophomore, he helped lead the Lions to the Class 4A Final Four, the furthest in school history.
Conway followed his productive sophomore campaign with a strong showing for Team Melo on the EYBL Circuit this spring and summer. In the 12 games on the circuit, Conway averaged 17.7 points per game with a 45/87.1/41.4 shooting split. With these performances, he cemented the fact that he can score against the best players in the country.
“I feel like I got better this summer as a player,” Conway told Prep Hoops. “I scored the ball pretty well against top talent. I was also able to pick up a few offers. I’m looking to carry it over into my winter season with a great Dulaney team.”
Those offers include Stanford, Long Beach State and Coastal Carolina. Before this spring and summer, Conway already held offers from Towson, Loyola (MD), Boise State, TCU, Old Dominion and Bryant.
The schools that have been in contact with Conway consistently include: Stanford, Long Beach State, Florida, Maryland, TCU and Seton Hall. Conway will be taking an unofficial visit to Seton Hall in early September. It wouldn’t be surprising to see an offer come his way during the visit.
As far as this season with Dulaney, Conway is embracing the underdog role. With players such as Ike Cornish and Che Evans taking their talents elsewhere, there will be plenty of production to replace. A lot of which will fall onto the shoulders of Conway. He told Prep Hoops that despite losing key guys, expectations remain the same.
“I’m confident in my guys,” Conway said. “I know what we can do as a team and with that being said, we’re still aiming for the county, regional and even the state championship. I believe we can do that.”
