Even though he stands 6’6, Wesleyan Christian Academy wing Theo Pinson has spent considerable time running point over the years and it’s evident to anyone that watches him. As a freshman, he ran the show at Oak Ridge Military Academy and has downright special passing skills that he developed during his tenure as a lead guard.
Doubling as an outstanding passer in both the open court and in half court sets, he blends the ability to make the simple pass with the spectacular. The consistency in Pinson’s jumper has improved over the years and he’s a special finisher in transition at the rim. On the defensive end, the junior uses his great wingspan and lateral quickness to get his hands on the rock a ton. Once you add in the fact that he is able to guard multiple positions, you see why Pinson is North Carolina’s top prospect for 2014.
Fresh off a state title at Wesleyan Christian Academy, Theo will be running on the AAU circuit with the CP3 All-Stars. He recently announced that UNC, Duke, NC State, Louisville, Kentucky, Georgetown, and Indiana are all in the running for his services. All of the aforementioned schools have put a scholarship on the table with the exception of Kentucky, who most presume will offer in the spring.
