[font=Arial][size=12px]6’3 2014 Ricky Council of Northern Durham HS in Durham, NC[/size][/font]
Council has been a regular of the NC Phenom Camp since he was a freshman and it has been an absolute joy watching the maturity and development of this young man. While Council is truly an “up and comer” with his rapidly improving game, he is also an excellent student and model citizen. Council was in attack mode from the opening whistle and continued his impressive performance throughout the day. He has gained strength and confidence over the years and his ability to aggressively attack the rim is impressive. He has a unique ability to finish with hard contact but also has the outside shooting touch to make the opposition respect his perimeter game. He is a tough competitor and was active on both ends of the court. While Council has been receiving interest from lower tier D1 programs, look for that to quickly change after a strong performance at the Dave Telep Carolina Challenge and the NC Phenom 150 camp. His stock is on the rise and now is the right time to make that investment.
