Ronaldo Segu is an elite student-athlete currently attending Olympia High School in Orlando, Florida. Ronaldo is one of the best high school perimeter players in the south, currently ranked the #32 point guard for the class of 2018 per ESPN. The 6’0 floor general is a hot commodity for college coaches seeking a point guard that can penetrate a defense with a tight handle, create easy buckets for bigs with great court vision, and knock down perimeter jumpers off the bounce or the catch.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great spring so far, you’ve turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us about how things are going for Showtime as a team and for you individually?
RS: Things are going very well. For Showtime it was our first year on the Under Armour circuit and it was a great experience. As for me, its been going well also. I’ve been shooting better, getting bigger and taking the roll of being a true PG, and not letting people outwork me.
