Head coach Corey Tate, Sean Pryor and Mineral Area Community College have now signed Class of 2008 Rich South star Carlton Guyton to their 2008 recruiting haul. Guyton rates as one of the top 2008 prospects in the state of Illinois.
Guyton, a 6'2" shooting guard, is a long and athletic player who is capable of getting points both with his jump shot, and also with his ability to slash to the basket.
This past season, Guyton teamed with Illinois-bound Crandall Head and Class of 2009 point guard Kendrick Morse to give Rich South a stellar trio of talent.
Guyton was terrific back in March at the ChicagoHoops.com Unsigned Senior Showcase, and has spent the spring and summer starring on the travel team circuit with the Illinois Ice and the Illinois Bobcats.
Guyton joins a Mineral Area program that also features Mike Stovall (Chicago Marshall), Jeremy Felton (Belleville), Sean Scott (Chicago Farragut), Brandon Hall (Chicago Simeon), Byron Pickens (Chicago Senn) and Al Rapier (Chicago Perspectives).
