Barton CC Inks Two Commits from Detroit Area

15 May

th4AZD8NCMBarton Community College, located in Great Bend, Kansas, is one of the premier JUCO’s in the country.  The Cougars year-in-and-out, seemingly always finish with an above .500 record, and are in contention for a JUCO national championship.   Also, Barton has recruited the Detroit area well over the past few years, with two players from local high schools on the 2013-2014 team with Raheem Johnson, 6’9″ sophomore forward, and Rashawn Walker, a 6’8″ forward.  For the incoming class of 2014 for Barton, the Cougars will add another Romulus player, 6’1″ guard Tyron Hamby, and 6’6″ forward Damarco White of Southfield Christian.

Hamby, who took the lead role as point guard his senior year, had one division one offer during the season, from Florida A&M, but was taken away after the head coach was fired.  He was getting looked at by a fair amount of schools, but never received an offer.  Hamby says he picked Barton CC because the coaches showed the most interest out of any schools that recruited him.  Hamby will bring to Barton a smart, playmaking guard who will look to contribute right away.  He has a strong, deceptive handle which allows him to get by defenders going either way, get into the lane, and create for either himself or teammates.  Hamby overall on offense has a good feel for the game, he knows when to change speeds and keep his defender off balance.  He’s a creative finisher at the basket, and his perimeter/mid-range jump shot has improved significantly over the course of his high school career.  Tyron is also a quality defender on the defensive side of the floor, with solid foot speed an IQ.

White will look to bring versatility to the Barton program.  He projects more as a wing at the college level, although he primarily played the post for the three time defending state champion Southfield Christian Eagles.  He can handle the ball well for his size, quick feet and agility, above the rim player, and overall brings energy to the floor whenever he is on the court.

    Both players seem to be sleepers, but can only improve their value for BCC.
