ESPN No. 55 ranked high school junior Cormac Ryan has committed to Stanford.
The 6-5 shooting guard averaged 19 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5 assists this season for Milton Academy (MA), shooting 40 percent from three and leading the team to the NEPSAC semifinals.
Ryan also has averaged 16.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists this spring for the NY Rens on the Nike EYBL circuit.
“Cormac is an elite shooter who showed the ability on the EYBL circuit to be a lead guard,” his NY Rens coach Chris Alesi told zagsblog.com. “He’s a high-level scorer and shotmaker, but his best attributes are his toughness and competitive nature. He played the last session of the EYBL with a broken wrist. Stanford is getting the total package with Cormac.”
Scout loves Ryan’s game.
“With good size for a guard, long arms, and solid athleticism, Ryan brings positional versatility,” wrote Scout’s Brian Snow. “Ryan’s calling card has been his ability to make shots, but he does far more than that.”
“After breaking out at the AAU Super Showcase in July of 2016, Ryan has been one of the most highly sought after prospects because of his combination of ability and academics,” Snow added.
At Stanford, Ryan will be joining fellow 2017 recruits No. 42 Kezie Okpala, No. 58 Daejon Davis, German player Oscar Da Silva, and Australian recruit Isaac White.
The Cardinal beat out the likes of Indiana, Villanova, Michigan, Florida, Notre Dame, and Penn to land Ryan.
