Sometimes we often wonder about past preps and what they are doing on the next level. Recently, I got a chance to see some of the 2018 class playing for in state junior colleges. What I saw reminded me why some of these young men were highly sought after preps during their high school days.

The former Fair Park & Southwood star is still a stout paint presence on offense and defense.  He is one of the best rebounders I have seen because of the way he attacks the ball on the offensive and defensive boards.  Black is also a sound help defender.  He hedges hard in pick-and-roll situations and gives up his body to take charges with regularity.  On offense, Black is relentless when attempting to finish under the basket.  Even when his shot is blocked, his instincts help him track the ball and gather it quickly for another attempt.  Black has a consist mid-range jumper as well.  At the end of this season, any school who needs an great defender and consistent scorer should be knocking on his door.
