Virginia Cavaliers add talented in-state forward
Tony Bennett and his Virginia staff struck for the second time this week with the addition of a former Cavaliers son.
B.J. Stith will follow in the footsteps of of his dad Bryant Stith and will head to Charlottesville, VA after he competes his high school eligibility Top sixty junior, 6-5 185-pound, B.J. Stith from Lawrenceville, VA Brunswick High has decided to follow in the footsteps in the spring of 2014. In the meantime, he’ll play for his dad as they look to continue a streak of six straight state championship games as they work on number seven at the end of the 2012-13 season.
He has a similar skill set to his dad, with the ability to knock down his jumper from beyond the arc or off the dribble with deadly accuracy. He can get to the rim off the dribble, but needs to work on finishing at times versus contact, but that will come as he continues to fill out his frame. He has an excellent basketball I.Q., and has the ability to start the break off the glass and deliver the rock to open teammates. It is that versatility on offense and his willingness to get after it on defensive end that will let him play early on at Virginia.
When his body fills out, like his dad’s did, look for more and more comparisons to follow to his dad, whon by the way played fro ten years in the NBA!
He joins a real youth movement in Charlottesville that includes Justin Anderson and Mike Tobey in the Class of 2012, plus lead guards Devon Hall and London Perrantes who are already committed in the 2013 class. Looks like Wahoos are going to make some noise in the ACC in the future!
