Finding a good point guard can be a serious problem for a lot of colleges. Quality lead guards are few and far between. With that said, one guy that seems like a sure bet to get strong recruiting interest is Hopkins point guard Siyani Chambers. Siyani hasn't even played as an upperclassmen yet but he's already handled for a state champion and led the Pulley Panther 17s to a 23-4 mark on the season.
"The Howard Pulley season is going really well," said Chambers. "The top moments so far are going 12-2 in the EYBL, and making it to the Peach Jam."
The game of Chambers is growing. He's hit more three-pointers this year, Siyani has been able to use his burst to get buy some quality guards and score or create, and overall he continues to be an outstanding leader at the position. At the Sabes Invitational Chambers showed his homestate of Minnesota that he can get it done putting points on the board and he produced while playing against players a year more experienced. With that said, Siyani still feels that he needs to develop his jumpshot and enhance his hesitation move.
Several schools have shown interest in Chambers from around the country. This summer he was invited to the Nike Hoop Jamboree at St. Louis University and Chambers plans to go to the Santa Clara camp. This past winter Siyani was also spotted at a couple Gopher games although Minnesota hasn't shown to much interest in him as of yet.
"Iowa State, Lehigh, Saint Louis University, Baylor, Cal Poly, and Harvard are showing the most interest," listed Siyani. "I have not heard from Minnesota, I think the Gophers will be good next year and they will make it to the tournament."
Chambers averaged eight points a game for Hopkins as a sophomore leading the way with Joe Coleman, D.J. Peterson, Marvin Singleton, Riley Dearring, and others playing at his side. Despite being a lead guard with numerous weapons Siyani has still totaled 306 varsity points in his young career. Chambers scored a varsity career high 15 points in a late January 15-point win over Benilde-St. Margaret's.
