SUWANEE, Ga. – Last week NY Rens wing Rawle Alkins announced that he would be leaving Christ the King (Middle Village, N.Y.) and transferring to a prep school for his senior season, but gave no indication on which lucky school would win out.
What he did know Thursday night was whichever school he picked would win big.
“I’m still not sure where I’m headed,” said Alkins, who posted 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in an 87-77 win over Indiana Elite at North Gwinett High in the adidas Finals. “But wherever I’m headed will be winning a national title, remember I said that.”
Last season, Alkins, who is ranked No. 22 overall in the ESPN 100, led Christ the King to the CHSAA title, completing the ever-elusive three-peat in the process.
He dominated the adidas Gauntlet this AAU season to the tune of 24.3 points per game and averaged 10.3 points per game to help the U.S. Select team to finish 3-0 at the 2015 adidas EuroCamp in Treviso, Italy.
“I have to go visit schools before I pick one for next year,” Alkins said of transferring. “It’s a big month for me because I’ve got a lot going on. I’ll be looking for the same things I want in a college; atmosphere, somewhere that will prepare me for the next level, all of that. I just want to go somewhere where I’ll continue to get better.”
