Joseph Santoliquito of MaxPreps has a great piece on Tyreke Evans and his career in high school:

“People forget Tyreke was 12 when he started playing high school basketball,” Reggie said. “We had people criticize us, question us: ‘What are you doing to him? Isn’t it too soon?’ Things like that. But we always believed in Tyreke. We put him right into the fire. We wanted to put him into situations where he could grow and build, and American Christian is where it started. People thought we were crazy for doing what we did. But Tyreke got out there and got exposure.”


It’s a very good article that also discusses Tyreke’s older brother Pooh Evans and his time playing in high school. Click here to read the entire piece.
