Meet Amarri Tice, a 6’7 2022 prospect who is just starting to scratch the surface as a prospect. The wing from South Kent (CT) and City Rocks (NY) is a lights-out shooter from deep, and can create and get a basket seemingly at will. Tice has seen his stock rise over the past couple of months, and by the end of the summer, he will become even more well-known in recruiting circles.
Recently, Tice spent some time chatting with Pro Insight’s Jake Lieberman about the latest with his recruitment.
For the next installment of “Recruiting Roundup,” we present class of 2022 prospect Amarri Tice:
PI: What's the current breakdown of your visits, offers, and interest?
Amarri Trice: I currently hold offers from Albany, Siena, UMBC, UMass, UNCW, Iona and NIU. I’m drawing interest from St. John’s, East Carolina, Washington, Syracuse, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Colgate, Tulsa, Loyola-Chicago, Buffalo, and Princeton. I’m most likely going to go on unofficial visits to St. John’s, UMass, Siena, and Iona this month.
PI: Which programs have you heard from the most lately?
AT: I’ve mostly been in contact the most with UMass, Siena, and Iona.
PI: What kind of role do you see yourself filling at the next level?
AT: At the next level, I see myself being able to play at any position and help contribute to a win. I can play wherever the coach needs me to play and I’m versatile enough to play anywhere.
PI: What’s been the most unique recruiting pitch you've heard thus far?
AT: The most unique thing during my recruitment process has been getting calls from schools I’ve never thought I’d get calls from. I’ve been in contact with schools from all over the nation.
PI: Did you have any dream schools growing up?
AT: Growing up, I’ve always loved college sports. I was a “Duke head” but my dad was a Cuse fan! The older I got the more I started to love Cuse and for them to be interested in me is a dream come true.
PI: If you could team up with any high school player in the country when you guys get to college, who would you pick?
AT: If I could team up with any high school player in the country in college, it would definitely be JJ Starling — that’s my guy!
PI: What are your three main priorities when narrowing down and eventually making a final decision with your recruitment?
AT: My final decision on college is mostly going to come down to how comfortable I feel at the school, and my role on the team. Also, how hard the school will push me to get me to the next level.
PI: How's your timeline looking?
AT: After Peach Jam, I’m going to give it a few months to see what my offers and interests are looking like. I plan on cutting my list down around October/November. Then maybe committing by the end of the year.
PI: If you could sum up your recruitment process up to this point in a sentence or so, what would it be?
AT: A dream to reality.
