D’Aguanno Drawing Interest
The July evaluation period might be starting this week, but Eric DAguanno has all ready been hard at work for the last few weeks with various elite camps, the Elite 75 College Showcase and the Hoop Mountain Elite Prospect Camp.
One of the best shooters in all of New England, D'Aguanno has stood out in every setting with his ability to rain feathery shots from behind the arc and college coaches are taking note.
"I've recently been getting a lot of interest from Colgate," he told the New England Recruiting Report last week. "I just went to their elite camp and played really well I thought."
But the Patriot League school isn't alone in their pursuit of the St. Andrew's star as Maine and Brown are both involved while division II schools like Bentley and Assumption have made a push recently as well.
While D'Aguanno's best weapon is certainly his jump-shot, he's not just a one-dimensional player.
"I think I can handle the ball better than people give me credit for," he said. "I'm not flashy but I get to where I need to get and can get my shot off."
He's also been putting a lot of work into his game on the defensive end of the floor, something must young players don't pay nearly enough attention to.
"I've been working on my quickness a lot and have gotten better defensively," he said, "and I just need to keep getting that better before the season at St. Andrew's."
While he may be focused on his senior season, his summer won't be slowing down anytime soon as he'll be at the Hoop Mountain All-Academic Camp this week at Brandeis followed by session II of the Hoop Group Elite Camp next week before making stops in Springfield and then Las Vegas with his New England Playaz squad.
You can bet he'll be followed by coaches from every level along the way as there simply aren't many guys who can shoot the ball like he can, especially ones who continue to improve their games across the board.
