6’5 Guard – Arkansas State ’16
BIO: High level guard. Smart, can score, spends equal time at either guard spot 1 or 2 and has great size and knows how to get to his spots. A good defender that understands the game and where to be on and off the ball within a system. Sean can play on the ball in that high screen game and punish teams for going under or get the big on skates if they’re trailing over and the big is in drop coverage. He knows how to put the defender in jail and let his screener get deep and force the help defender to choose. Crafty scorer at the 2 spot, knows how to read curl-flare, hits big shots, excellent in the side pick and rolls, running a single-double or floppy system, also good in a flex. There is no part of his game that is lacking… complete player who also rebounds well from the guard position and can run a team.
Sean has current video, is in shape, and passport ready

Natural scorer that shoots a high percentage and just knows how to use his body to shield defenders and get point blank opportunities for his team. Also very effective from 3.

Freak Athlete has a workout with the Washington Wizards (NBA). Tough as nails and doesn’t quit. Intimidates the opposition because of how har he plays with his aggressiveness. DAWG!
6’5 Guard – East Texas Baptist
BIO: long, lanky 6’5 that can play the lead guard spot makes Darrice special. He’s left handed and just swoops in and smaller guards just can’t do much about it. 41% 3 point shooter in the top league in Mexico but playing time was a factor on the overall production he could contribute there arriving mid-season and rotations fairly set but look at his percentages. You can’t argue 56% from the field, 41% from 3, and 87% from the stripe wasn’t impacting the game with the chances he was given. Whitley is one of those types of players that plays on both ends too. He’s a scrappy defender and a starter at almost any level very capable of 20ppg, 7rpg, and 4apg with great efficiency.

BIO: Big guard that overpowers to the basket and creates for himself and his teammates. Excellent defender that can guard all positions and is switchable.
