Versatile Shaun Pruitt Still Looking To Work On His Game

West Aurora’s Shaun Pruitt, the top Class of 2004 post prospect in the state of Illinois, is still looking to work on his game.

Shaun Pruitt is a major talent, that is getting major attention from some of the top basketball programs in the United States. West Aurora basketball coach Gordie Kerkman says that Pruitt is the most recruited player that he has ever coached.

Despite all the attention, Shaun Pruitt is still working hard to improve his game. Pruitt, a left-hander, told Chicago Hoops that he is focusing on working on his right hand.

Pruitt feels that his versatility is one of the stronger parts of his game. The 6-9 Pruitt, who has an wide array of moves in the post, is an absolute terror inside. However, despite being a big man, Pruitt can still put the ball on the floor, and comfortably knock down 15-foot jumpers.

Pruitt says that he feels he is about 85% recovered from the leg injury that sidelined him for most of his junior season. He is hearing from a number of programs including Indiana, Wisconsin, Marquette and Xavier. He says that a number of other programs are looking to get involved.

Whatever school lands Shaun Pruitt is going to get a major talent on the basketball court, and a first class individual off the court. Pruitt and the Illinois Wolves will be in action Memorial Day weekend at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
