ETSU has offered Ty Toney, a 6’3 SG from Alpharetta, Ga. via Georgia Highlands C.C. Ty was a JUCO All-American honorable mention and first team all-region. He averaged 17.8 PTS/G and 2.4 A/G in 36 games at Georgia Highlands C.C. this year. See more stats on Toney here.
Ty played at Appalachian State his freshmen year before transferring to Georgia Highlands C.C. While at Appalachian State Toney average 6.3 PTS/G in 22 games.
According to ESPN insider, “Toney is a physical shooting guard who is strong for his size and wired to score. He can get buckets at all three levels. Get to the rim, straight line drive and score through contact. Mid range jumpers off the catch or dribble and knock down the open three.”
Here is what Jason Capel had to say about Ty Toney
“Ty is a very talented kid, and a great young man. He is strong, quick and explosive on both ends of the court. He is the type of player who can help a team in so many ways because of his competitiveness and versatility. In our system, it is important to have guards that can do multiple things especially off the bounce and Ty gives us a player that can do just that. He scores the ball from all over the court and has the ability with his strength and quickness to get mid-range and elevate over defenders. He is also explosive enough to get in the paint and finish through contact or make the right pass to an open teammate. Ty led Alpharetta to the state semifinals last season with one of the best playoff runs in Georgia high school basketball history. His is a player that will be a joy to coach on both sides of the ball.”
In addition to ETSU, Toney has also received offers from Kennesaw State, Jacksonville State, North Carolina Central, Jackson State, Tennessee State and FIU.
EDIT: Toney has signed with Eastern Michigan.
