The pursuit of Beddingfield High junior basketball player Aaron Rountree is beginning to heat up.
The 6-foot-7 wing for will hold a workout at the school Tuesday with coaches from N.C. State, Virginia, Elon and Virginia Commonwealth present, Bruins head coach Jeremy Howard said. Rountree is a talent-in-progress but certainly showed a lot of it this past season when he averaged 10.1 points and 8.8 rebounds.
Rountree was an integral performer on a talented Beddingfield that might just be the team to beat in not only the 2-A Eastern Plains Conference but also the 2-A Eastern region as well next year. Returning with Rountree are fellow Wilson Times All-Area selections 6-7 junior X-Keem Jones and junior playmaker Daquan Langston.
Expected a lot of attention focused on Rountree and the Bruins next winter.
