As a young athlete few things are more exciting than receiving a college offer, it is the culmination of all your hard work and skill paying off. Most young athletes start receiving offers in high school, whether it is Division I, II or III, just getting an offer is usually a blessing.
2022-point guard Ramel Lloyd received his first college offer this week from UNLV to play basketball. Lloyd has been on the national scene since he was in 4th grade, he does not shy away from the spotlight, but was still taken back a little but by the gravity of the moment.
“It feels good, I was excited because it was unexpected, I didn’t even know until I saw it online.” Lloyd said.
Standing at 6’3 as just a 7th grader, Lloyd has a ton of potential. He has an overall solid game, there is no glaring weakness, his handles are good, he can shoot from the outside and get to the basket easily, either finishing at the rim or creating chances for teammates.
Lloyd is well aware that he must continue to improve and not let this early success affect his growth as a player. Some athletes can get complacent after receiving an offer, not Lloyd he knows what is at stake.
“Moving forward I am going to continue to work. Getting an offer now made me want to work harder. I love the game, the offer is a big motivation for me to get better.” Said Lloyd.
