Phenom Hoops Report has been quite familiar with High Point Christian’s point guard Michal Seals, who has been a regular at several events over the years.

Seals has been working hard throughout the offseason and the long hours could be paying off, with interest coming from a few programs not too far down the road. His interest has been because of the hard work on the court when running with his AAU team, Team Winston, or competing on the hardwood at events such as the NC Phenom 150 and NC Top 80. And we aren’t the only ones high on this young man’s talent.

Michal Seals (PG, 5’11”, 2016) High Point Christian Academy (NC) – I’ve seen Seals multiple times over the past 3 years and I really like his heads-up play and elusiveness under the basket. A true PG who has excellent handles, puts pressure on the defense with the dribble drive but also can finish in traffic. Being actively recruited by several colleges.
