Class of 2023 forward Spencer Mahoney commits to Washington State
By ADAM ZAGORIASpencer Mahoney, the 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward from Red Rock Academy (PA) and the PSA Cardinals, committed to Washington State on Sunday following a visit.
“Just the play style,” he said by text. “Fits my game they shoot a lot of 3’s. I bring the skillset of being able to shoot the ball at a high clip.”
He also visited St. John’s.
St. Benedict”s coach Mark Taylor, who coached Mahoney before he left for Red Rock, said: “Spencer is a great shooter and has a super-high IQ with great size. His skillset will translate to the next level.”
Added Terrance “Munch” Williams of the PSA Cardinals:
“Spencer is one of the best shooters in the country. He’s more than prepared for what the Pac-12 has to offer. His day to day and family structure have put him in position to help winning from day one. The PSA Cardinals thank him for his time in the program and look forward to watching him chase his dream of one day making the NBA. God bless his journey.”
