PC's Dominique Raney gathering offers
After leading Putnam City in scoring on the way to the team’s second consecutive state basketball championship, Dominique Raney’s future has only gotten brighter.
Several schools have already extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-4 guard as he prepares for his senior season with the Pirates. His offer list is topped by Oklahoma State and Wichita State, with Oklahoma strongly recruiting him, though their scholarship situation for the 2011 class is uncertain.
“You really enjoy it at first, with all those schools talking to you,” Raney said of the recruiting process. “But it gets old real fast. I don’t want to say it’s a burden, because I’m not taking it for granted, but there’s schools calling all the time.”
Raney averaged 17.5 points per game as a junior, but he wants to use the next year to show he’s more than a scorer.
“When I get to college, I want to be a combo guard. I like playing point guard,” said Raney, who is playing this summer with the Dallas Slam, formerly Team Texas. “I’m working out, trying to get bigger. I want to show people everything I can do, show them my full game.”
