It was a very busy Monday for Danny Manning and the coaching staff. First they offered 2016 6'6 wing De'Riante Jenkins out of Florida, and then followed it up (or at least in the same time frame) set up a transfer visit from Rashad Muhammad of San Jose State.
Finally the Deacs ended the day by offering possibly the best of the bunch in 2016 guard Kameron McGusty.
Not only does the guy have an awesome name, but he can ball too, currently ranked as the 42nd best player in the Class of 2016 according to the ESPN Top 60.
McGusty has already been offered by Texas, Texas A&M, Tulsa, Kansas State, and Oklahoma. While the Deacs are probably a little later in the game to McGusty than they would like, this adds yet another name to the growing list of players that Coach Manning has offered for the Class of 2016. It is becoming blatantly obvious that he is going hard after the most talented players in the country and making no excuses for it whatsoever.
At 6'5, 170 pounds, McGusty brings a big frame for a guard that can play both backcourt positions, and possibly the three as well in a smaller lineup. He recently made a trip to Texas where "everything" caught his attention according to an article by HornsFans.com.
He has really good handle for a bigger guard, and I am guessing he has put on some height recently based on the way he approaches the game (with a guard mentality). When you combine that with above average athleticism it makes for a pretty tasty projection in his transition to the college game.
Going up against Shaka Smart is never an easy task, but here's to hoping Coach Manning can get McGusty on campus and show him what Wake Forest is all about.
McGusty plays at Seven Lakes High School in Katy, Texas, and during the summer plays for for the Houston Defenders on the AAU circuit.
