Edmonton, Alberta Canada's Ross Sheppard High School is one of Western Canada's top factories for basketball talent. They've recently sent Jermaine Buckner to Richmond and Steve Sir to San Diego State. There's another very good player waiting for his turn in 2014 Abdul Al-Tamimi a 6'2" combo guard.
Tamimi is averaging a whopping 28 ppg. 12.5 apg, 9rpg and 3 spg. Leading Ross Sheppard to a 24-2 record. Not only does Tamimi pour it on vs the patsies, he also elevatyes his game against the tough opponents too. He recently put 43 points/11 rebounds/9 assists on the #1 squad in Alberta in a rare loss.
Tamimi is interested in attending a prep school in the United State to get himself ready for a D1 opportunity the following fall.
Tamimi can really score the ball. He doesn't need a lot of room to get his shot off. He understands the mid range and has the ability to separate with a nice jab step, then step back. Although not a super quick penetrator, he's got a great change of pace and has a strong body which can take contact. His court vision is also a strong point as he draws defenders and drops dimes in the right spot for his team mates to finish.
