We have followed the path of Ian Steere since 2013 when he attended the NC Phenom 150 camp. He was somewhat raw, but was incredibly athletic. Since then, Ian has worked hard on his game and the rising sophomore at Wesleyan Christian Academy may just be the missing piece to their season.

In our October, 2014 report, we stated “Ian is just scratching the surface on his potential and upside. He is physically gifted and has tremendous bounce. He is both quick and explosive and plays above the rim. What makes Ian dangerous is his ability to step out and knock down the 10-foot elbow jumper. Ian has all the tools and ingredients to play at a high major level. He just needs to fine-tuning and enhancing his ever -improving skill set. The sky is the limit!”

This past summer, Ian Steere was a member of the successful CP3 team. We were impressed with his progress and maturation on the court. He knows his role extremely well and always seems to be in position on both ends of the court for rebounding position.

Ian is a two handed rebounder and quickly looks to make the outlet pass. Once the outlet pass is made, he usually sprints down the court looking for the return pass for a thunderous dunk in transition. He does possess a soft touch with good backspin and rotation, but his shot can flatten out at times. That being said, he has made tremendous progress in that area.

On and off the court, Ian carries himself the correct way. He has excellent body language and is always a cheering teammate when he is not in the game. Ian plays hard and has a “lucky go happy” attitude which is refreshing in today’s culture.

Off the court, we are most impressed with how he conducts himself. He is always a respectful young man with unbelievable manners. He is always saying “yes/no sir” and is just a pleasure to speak with. With Ian, there is no ego. He just keeps working to improve and get better. As we have often said many times before, “it’s not where you start but where you finish that’s most important.” With Ian, don’t be surprised if he challenges for the top spot in his class in the state by his senior year. Yes, he has that must potential and then some!
