Recruitment talk with 2022 Halil Barre
Basketball enthusiasts have heard of Halil Barre. He does the dirty work on the floor. I was surprised to confirm he was 6'8" because he plays much bigger on the floor. I recently caught up with him to discuss recruitment.
"My name is Halil Barre, I’m a 2022 prospect who's 6’8" with a 7’4 wingspan. I’m from Benin. I go to Scotland Campus and played AAU with NY REN's on the EYBL circuit."
Which schools have been in contact the most?
"I've been in touch with La Salle. Youngstown State and Towson. There’s schools like Marquette and Pittsburgh that have been recruiting me but we’re not in touch that much."
Breakdown relationships with schools
"I’m just keeping my options open and plan to make the right decision at the end of the season. I’m not rushing."
Which playing style best suits your ability?
"I like to play fast. I like to run and use my athleticism. On offense I like to get the ball on the mid post, catching lobs and run pick and pops."
