Romeo Weems is an elite student-athlete currently attending New Haven High School in metropolitan Detroit. The 6’6 wing is one of the most highly touted prospects in the entire country, currently ranked a 5star and the #13 player for the class of 2019. Just finishing up his freshman campaign, Romeo has already made a statement on the national scene, as high major colleges want to make an early impression on the tremendously skilled wing with the versatility to handle the ball on the perimeter and create easy looks for himself and teammates, knock down perimeter jumpshots, score with his back to the basket, all while having the size, strength and athleticism to attack the glass and be a great defender.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congratulations on the great spring/summer, can you tell us how things went for The Family as a team and for you individually?
RW: As a team, it wasn’t the best year. We didn’t win that many games but I think I’ve been doing good individually so far.
Romeo Weems just scored 27 points in a win over the Orlando Orangemen. Really solid player. Defends well, and scores it with ease

EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?
RW: An aggressive SF that can rebound, defend, and play hard. I can dribble a little, shoot a little, and I’m competitive.
