A look at the individual game of New Yorker R.J. Rutledge, who is considered a fine shooting guard ...
PROFILE: R.J. Rutledge
FORMER HIGH SCHOOL: Lawrence-Woodmere Academy (Long Island)
CURRENT PREP SCHOOL: Northfield-Mount Hermon, Massachusetts

HEIGHT: 6-foot-4
POSITION: Shooting Guard
BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW: The lanky shooter had teamed with current Northfield mate Tyrone Nash at Lawrence-Woodmere Academy on Long Island during high school, helping lead LWA to the Class A State Federation final as a senior. Rutledge is long and rangy, and he is never afraid to tee it up from deep.

MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW: Rutledge has tremendous range on his jumpshot. As he learns to create his shot with his dribble, R.J. will become a more consistent scorer. Like most high school or prep basketball players, Rutledge will need to add strength for the next level. It's likely that R.J. has a good college career since his strength is his shooting.

SCHOOLS INTERESTED IN RUTLEDGE: Manhattan, Howard, Long Island University, Binghamton, and Monmouth.
*Rutledge previously told reporter Brian Towey that Long Island University has offered a scholarship.
