Darion Spottsville Signs with South Mountain JC

by Anthony Ray | Posted on Friday, August 18th, 2017

Shadow Mountain High School's tough and hard-working 6-foot-5 unsigned senior forward Darion Spottsville is now official off the recruiting board.  Spottsville was rated among the top unsigned prospects in the state of Arizona, but after this week, he will no longer be unsigned, as the talented combo-forward prospect has given a verbal commitment to South Mountain Junior College and new head coach Matt Bjorklund.

Bjorklund took over as head coach this week at the program after former head coach Daven Vo accepted an opportunity this week to coach at Butler Junior College in Kansas.  Vo held the head coaching position at South Mountain Junior College for several seasons, and led the program to a successful performance under his tenure.  Matt Bjorklund will take over the helm and finish what Vo has started in the organization and look to take South Mountain back to the top of the conference standings.

Landing Darion Spottsville was an excellent get for the Cougars basketball program and a nice find thsi late in the summer.  Spottsville is a big time talent that flat out went well underrecruited in the state and as a result, he found himself playing basketball through the summer months without a scholarship.  Spottsville also had the option of playing football or basketball in college, but decided on basketball instead of football - a major decision for Spottsville.

Spottsville was among the last top-rated prospects available among our list of top-rated prospects/performers.  Now that Spottsville has found a home it will now be very interesting to see where Caleb Simmons now lands.  Simmons has indicated that he will let everyone know by next week where he will be going to school and where he will be headed for this fall.

Now that Spottsville is done and has made his college deicison for the future, it will be very interesting to see how Spottsville fits into Matt Bjorklund's plans for next season and what position he will play for the program.

Only time will tell, but he is definitely a nice young man that competes hard and has the potential to play at the division-I level.

I will continue to follow Spottsville's college recruitment in the junior college ranks, and also watch his developement as a player closely as well, and bringing your any updates as they continue to develop.

Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report:  Spottsville is a strong and well-built young prospect that has a good body and a nice motor. He is a very good scorer in transition, and also is a nice slasher and finisher in the open court. In the half-court set, he can get into the lane and finish or make perimeter shots to set up his drives. Has good range on his shot, but is at his best attacking the basket with the ball on drives. Plays well above the rim when he decides to attack the basket. A good ball handler and penetrator. A solid passer. A very good defender with good overall toughness. A talented guard prospect with nice potential for the future. A football star as well and should play football in college, but is capable of playing both at a high level.
