Ryan Andino (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Cardinal Gibbons) heads into the off-season after a solid junior year. The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 12 points per game while making 40 percent of his three point shots.
Andino averaged 12 points and four rebounds per game this past season.
“This year my scoring went down a little because I transferred over to Cardinal Gibbons,” he said. “We had a good team and a good season. It was kind of disappointing season but it made me want to work harder. I shot the ball really well this season. I had six or seven three’s in the first game. I thought my defense improved a lot.”
Heading into the AAU season Andino has heard from a couple mid-major programs. He talked about who has been in touch the most and what schools have stopped by recently.
“I am hearing the most from San Francisco,” he said. “They have been contacting my parents and me a great deal. Murray State stopped by on last week and Central Florida has been sending me a lot of mail.”
Andino was busy for most of his high school season but did manage to take a visit over to Florida Gulf Coast. During AAU season he hopes to make a few more trips and has a good idea what the important factor in deciding on a college will be.
“The academics are going to be important,” he said. “That is going to be number one for me and then coaching and the system and how they do in conference play.”
Andino will play with Florida Gold Coast this coming AAU season.
