Daryl Traynham PG - 2010

Vance’s Traynham is a 5-8/5-9 PG currently listed in Rivals Top 150 at #112. (Rivals has him in school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, while Scout lists Vance. Hmmm…)

Anyway, we’re listed on Rivals, but not on Scout.

So he no longer goes to Vance?

Not sure. I’ll have to ask my son, who is also at Vance and same class as well.

Per below, he transferred from DC to Vance last year so I guess he just went back…


Didn’t he visit during one of our games last year?

Attended the Maryland game.

Demon Brown’s as well

And Basden’s.

Another Moxley connection I presume? :biggrin:

And Beasley- Riverdale Baptist

Never heard of him.

According to Gary Parrish, Traynham has enrolled at Patterson…

Less than a week after adding Clarence Trent (committed to Washington) to the program, Patterson School should get another boost Wednesday morning. That's when a source told CBSSports.com that Class of 2010 point guard Daryl Traynham is expected to arrive on campus and officially join an already talented roster.

Traynham is ranked as one of the top 25 point guards in the Class of 2010.

He is originally from the Washington D.C. area.

Among the schools that have reportedly recruited him at one time or another are Xavier, Oregon, Kansas State, St. Joseph’s, Maryland, Clemson, N.C. State and UMass.

Good to see we still get left off these lists.

No longer at Patterson per Gary Parrish…

You might remember a post from last month about a kid named Daryl Traynham.

It was about his transfer to Patterson School.

And though I feel silly posting twice in less than two weeks about a high school junior who isn’t even a consensus Top 100 prospect, I am compelled to update his story today and tell you he is no longer at Patterson School. Why? The official explanation revolves around homesickness or something of the sort. But a source close to Traynham said the real reason is that in a span of less than four days after arriving at Patterson the point guard managed to get involved in two off-the-court incidents, one of which was a fight with a teammate.

Sounds like a model citizen, doesn’t it?

I wish luck to the college program that lands this clown.

Does anyone know where Traynham has “landed” for this year? As I posted last week (see above), his tenure at Patterson didn’t last too long.

No longer at Patterson

Absolutely discouraging. He sounds like the most perfect fit to be Harris’ heir at point guard and the most imperfect fit to be Harris’ heir at leadership.

Langston Wertz’s piece in yesterday’s Big O about local high school hoops mentioned Traynham and sounds like he’s back at Vance. A lot of other good stuff as well.

[b]Starting five[/b]

Brandyn Curry, Hopewell, 6-1, Sr., G: ME-CA 7 4A Player of the Year (17 ppg, 6 apg, 4 spg, 4 rpg) has committed to Harvard and will lead the best team in school history this season.

Andre Marhold, North Mecklenburg, 6-7, Sr., F: Heavily recruited forward is freakishly athletic. Averaged 17 points last season and led the Vikings to the N.C. 4A Western Regionals.

Marquis Rankin, Vance, 6-1, So., G: You could pick any of Vance’s three strong guards here (Daryl Traynham and Jacoby Davis are the other two). All are Division I recruited and hope to get Vance to its second N.C. 4A title game in three years.

Odell Turner, Myers Park, 6-8, Sr., C: Working with NBA legend Bobby Jones has turned him into one of the area’s best. One of five starters back from powerhouse last season.

Bernard Sullivan, North Mecklenburg, 6-8, So., F: Named a top-10 camper at the adidas regional top 150 camp, Sullivan appears to be past knee problems that plagued him during an up-and-down freshman season.

Area regional favorites

Hopewell: Sectional finalist returns nearly every key player and has added size.

Morganton Freedom: Old-school 4A power is loaded at the guard spot.

Myers Park: Mustangs are deep and talented and they have the size. Wing Quan Sturdivant will cause matchup problems.

North Meck: The region’s top program the past five years is ready to make a run at a third state title game in five years.

Vance: On paper this is the most talented team the school has ever had. There are at least six Division I recruits.

Charlotteobserver.com: 4A Boys’ Basketball Update

These confirm Trayhham is indeed playing for Vance this year…

The Cougars have three high major Division I recruits in junior guard [b]Daryl Traynham[/b] and sophomores Jacoby Davis and Marquis Rankin.

Traynham is 5-7 and is the team’s primary ball handler. He has offers from Charlotte, James Madison, Kansas State and Massachusetts.
