Wynston Tabbs is off to a productive start on the EYBL circuit, averaging 11.6 points per game while shooting nearly 37% from distance. The 6’3 guard speaks on his recent play and where he’s at with his recruitment.
A strong guard with a great stroke from both distance and midrange, Tabbs — the number 28 shooting guard for the class of 2018 per ESPN — has established himself as one of the better perimeter scoring threats in the country. .
“The biggest strength of my game is getting downhill and pulling up from midrange” Wynston told Endless Motor Sports.
Tabbs makes up part of an ultra-talented Team Melo backcourt that currently sits at 7-5 in EYBL play and in prime position to make Peach Jam. He likes the direction of the team and is making a contribution on both ends of the court.
“Thing are going great! I feel like I’m scoring and defending well,” said Wynston.
On the recruiting front, Tabbs has picked up offers in the last 3 weeks from VCU, Cincinnati, St. Johns, George Mason, Hofstra, St. Bonaventure, South Florida in addition to existing offers from Rutgers, George Washington, La Salle, Penn State, James Madison, Towson, St. Louis, and UNC Greensboro. Wynston tells Endless Motor Sports that Providence, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Miami are now showing interest as well.
Tabbs does not have a leader or a top group at this point, but is planning on narrowing things a bit after summer. His sole focus right now is helping Team Melo get to the top of the EYBL standings.
“I’ll probably trim my list to a top group in September. My goals right now are to win Peach Jam and show college coaches that I’m one of the top guards in the nation.”
We really like Wynston as a bigger scoring guard. He has a college ready frame right now, good athleticism and can score from nearly any spot on the court.
