By Big Shots Nation, 10/17/19, 12:00PM EDT


Big Shots caught up with Ahmil Flowers to discuss his unique recruiting process.

Ahmil Flowers is due for a strong senior season as one of two emerging seniors on Grimsley High School's roster. After leading the team in scoring (15.3 ppg) and rebounds (5.7 rpg) in 2018-19, he's ready to do a whole lot more after a strong spring/summer on the AAU circuit. Big Shots caught up with him on Wednesday to get his thoughts on his recruitment and a few other things.

Q: It came down to a Final 3 of Radford, WCU and High Point, you ultimately chose High Point, explain that decision.

Ahmil Flowers: I just took my visits to each school and liked the campus at High Point. It's a really nice campus for those that don't know. The coaching staff, they just fit my style. I liked Coach Tubby, Coach G.G. Smith, all the coaches there. The team was welcoming and as a recruit, it was a good feeling to be welcome. The growth of High Point, the new facilities, the campus in general, teams on the schedule just made me feel like we have a chance to do something special in the next few years.

Q: Your recruitment was a unique process and you never seemed to waver. What advice would you give the prospects looking to play on the next level?

AF: You know always get in the gym. Do the things other prospects aren't doing and never settle. A lot of people are switching schools and it's not necessary. You can be a Division I player at any school, anywhere. So, just stick with it and stay hungry. You never know what might happen.

Q: With a new head coach, what are you most looking forward to with this group?

AF: The youth...we have a lot of young talent which translates into a lot of energy. Then, we have a great coach who's going to help us with his history. With his winning, he can bring us a winning mentality and with some of the incoming freshmen, they can be a bonus for us too.

Q: What part of your game have you developed the most entering your final season?

AF: I've mostly been working on my jump shot, but also my ball-handling. Being able to play off screens, split double teams, shooting off-balance, difficult shots. I just want to keep improving on my jump shot, it can get a lot better.

Q: What are you looking forward to the most in your final season?

AF: Just the atmosphere, the crowd. You know, it's my final year, I'm ready for the Page game, things like senior night. I'm just ready for the season to start in general.
