Basketball Spotlight Feature: Introducing Devonte Combs!

Devonte Combs 

As we last reported Paul Suber the basketball guru from the Big Apple had relocated to the West Coast and joined the I 10 Celtics as the head coach. Since arriving Suber has helped the Celtics turn this program into a national power. Now his latest addition should keep things rolling in the right direction. Introducing 6’8 and 220 lbs Devonte Combs.

Suber loves the big 8th Grader and isn’t afraid to state his attributes “He has grown man strength inside, good free throw shooter and decent footwork on the box”

Paul enjoys showing his players love but also knows that Combs is a work in progress, “He needs to improve his conditioning, footwork and better balance once he receives the rock” he finished. 

If Combs is willing to listen and put in the work Suber believes he could be a special talent down the road. “His grandfather is 7’1 and he’s projected to be a 7 footer. Right now I would say he reminds me of a young Jared Sullinger but if he projects he could be the next Karl Towns." 

Basketball Spotlight will get a good look at Combs as he travels to the East Coast with the I 10 Celtics for the Tip Off Classic. We will keep you updated with his progress.
