Make no mistake about it, Ryan Schweiger is not only a Division 1 player, he is a kid that should already have multiple offers.

However, Ryan Schweiger is falling under the radar, although he shouldn’t be. Last season, he was an all-conference performer as a sophomore. He played a secondary role, a lot of the time finding himself in the post, giving way to an all-senior backcourt. However, out of position Schweiger was still able to produce, averaged 10.5 points and 7 boards per game.

This year, Schweiger will be the man. But this is a role that Schweiger is accustomed to. At the Fall NC Phenom 150 Session 2, he averaged 18 points, 14 boards, and 7 assists. He was the team’s (and camp’s) best rebounder, he was the team’s point guard, and he was the player who finished the possession by putting the ball in the bucket.

Over the summer Schweiger played for his local AAU program. He led the Wesley Chapel Weddington Athletic Club in scoring, rebounding and assists (yes, it’s a usual theme). Leading his team in these stats is sure to be what he will replicate for his high school.

Schweiger is comfortable handling the ball in the half court. He has long arms and plays with a great pace, as the ball finds its way into his hands most possessions. Schweiger carries a long frame, with a sturdy build. He has a high IQ which allows him to grab the majority of rebounds coming off the rim. Schweiger has great touch and balance. He finishes as a three level scorer with deep range and a crafty nature in the lane.

Through three games this season, Weddington has started off 2-1. Schweiger is averaging 15 points, 8 boards, and 4 assists. He shoots 72% from 2-point range and 67% from 3-point range. Schweiger has as many offensive boards as he does defensive boards.

Schweiger will win his Conference’s Player of the Year Award. Schweiger should be on one of the All-State teams. Schweiger should end the year with five (5) or more D1 offers. Coaches, all you need to do is watch him play.
