Paul Bayt, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound 2012 shooting guard from Park Tudor (Ind.), is headed to Manhattan.
“The coaches believe in me and believe in my ability and I believe in their vision and the way the school and program is headed,” Bayt told SNY.tv.
“Bayt is a deep, deep 3-point threat,” Park Tudor coach Ed Schilling told SNY.tv . “At a long 6-4 he can shoot his picture perfect 3-pointer with guys in his face. He helped his Park Tudor team to the Indiana high school championship.”
Instead of going on the AAU circuit this summer, Bayt worked out two hours, five days a week with NBA guys like Patrick Patterson, Alec Burks and Gordon Hayward.FREE THROWS
