Anyone with an ounce of hoops experience would agree that quality post players are not a dime a dozen.
And, a quality inside player with the skill and versatility to stretch a defense while keeping opposing teams honest? That's even more of an egg hunt.
Well, PTT and Notre Dame-West Haven Prep's, Fabian Cox, has become just that.
"Typically when you hear about versatile big men who can stretch the floor, it's code for 'he's big and skilled but not productive inside.' Cox is legitimately versatile," said New England Recruiting Report founder, Adam Finkelstein. "He's got a broad build from head-to-toe that allows him to clear space inside. He has a super soft touch that already allows him to stretch the floor and he's a good passer on top of that."
Project Triple Threat (PTT) founding coach, Drew Dawson, agrees with Finkelstein.
"Fabian is all of 6'8 with a good frame and strength...he's skilled, and shows good poise on the block," explained Coach Dawson.
Following graduation from Hamden High School (CT), the 6-foot-8 frontliner opted for a post-graduate year at ND-West Haven, averaging 11 ppg, 6 rpg while shooting 43% from beyond the arc.
Fabian is unsigned and attracting interest from the likes of FDU, Pace, UNH, SNHU, among others. His most recent offer is from NAIA contender, Trinity Christian College.
Whoever ends up signing Fabian will be getting not only a great kid, but also a coach's dream from the standpoint that Fabian is a classic late bloomer, who's just beginning to truly understand how effective he could be on the college level.
