Benjamin May ‘15 Recruiting Profile

Personal Statement

My name is Ben May and I am currently a Senior at China Spring High School in China Spring, TX.  Academically, I am a straight A student and I am currently ranked #4 in my class.  I am currently on the "Distinguished" track for graduation in Additionally, I am a member of the National Honor Society. Also, I recently received the Army National Reserve Male Scholar Athlete of the Year Award for being the highest rank student athlete in my class.

For the basketball season, I earned a spot on the varsity team as a Sophomore.  There were only two Sophomores that made varsity. I played primarily at the 2 and 3 spots, averaging about 8 minutes per game and 5 points per game. I also averaged 5 rebounds/game and 1 assists/game.

As a Junior during the most recent season, I averaged almost 17 minutes per game, normally being the first person off the bench.  I played primarily at the 4 position, but also saw some action at the 3 and 5 spots.  I was fourth on the team in PPG. My field goal % of 52 was second best on the team and my 46% on three pointers led the team. I also averaged 1 block, 1 steal, 1 assist and 3 rebounds per game.

My club experience has been playing on the Waco Hoop Station team coached by Kevin Henry.  We played a heavy tournament schedule the past two summers. This past summer, I led my team in the following per game categories: Assists, Steals, Rebounds and Blocks. I also just finished a four tournament stint with a local AAU team called the Texas Chargers.

My Senior season just ended with the team going overall and making the playoffs for the first time in 11 years.  I served as co-captain of the team for the entire season. My stats were as follows: 7 PPG, 2 APG, 5 RPG and 2 BPG. My 54 season blocks broke the school record for blocks in a season.  Also, my 84 career blocks is now the most in our school's history. I take pride in focusing on my defensive play as much as my offense.

I have attended three scouting events including two hosted by Scouts Focus and one hosted by Maximum Exposure.
My goal is to graduate with honors in and then attend a school that will provide me an opportunity to play basketball.  I am open to Divisions I, II, III or NAIA.  I plan to major in sports medicine or education.

A school that recruits me will be getting a player is devoted to basketball and the classroom.  I have a proven history of doing well in both.

WACO, Texas (KWTX) - A senior from China Spring High School has an opportunity to play Division I basketball next year, but the road to his success hasn’t been easy.

Eli Stephens is absolutely electric on the basketball court for the China Spring cougars. He’s had a lifelong goal of playing college basketball at the highest level, and now he’s lined up to do so.

He said it took a lot of hard work, and some of his motivation came from his mom.

In , when Eli was thirteen years old, his mom died in a car accident.

“It was very hard because I was a mama’s boy and I would always like to be around her and it was hard when we just lost her,” said Eli.

At that age, Eli had already fallen in love with basketball and used this tragedy as fuel.

“It honestly made me work harder and put forth the effort to just impress her since she’s not here to see,” explained Eli.

At just 5′8″ becoming an elite hooper took a lot of work, but Eli did it.

In November, he signed to play at American University in Washington D.C.

“I haven’t tracked how many guards under 6 feet have a D-I scholarship but it’s probably less than on one hand,” said China Spring head coach Philip McCaslin.

As the head coach at China Spring, Philip McCaslin has a front-row ticket to how special Eli is.

“We have to practice Eli things in terms of how we react when Eli just starts doing Eli things that I don’t coach,” said Coach McCaslin.

Eli learned some of those things, playing in the backyard with his older brother who currently plays college basketball at Concordia.

“We used to have a hoop at the house, so it was a big influence,” said Eli.

Eli hopes you see a few things when you watch him play. “How hard I work, how hard I get after it, how hard I want to win.”

While you’re watching him, Eli thinks about his mom doing the same.

“Good stuff and bad stuff because she was always like keep your head up and stuff like that.”
