VYPE reached out to the high school community a few weeks ago to have unsigned seniors send in their info.
It was an amazing response, which VYPE was overwhelmed by. To be clear, VYPE is not a recruiting service, we do not send this info to coaches or hold events. The VYPE editorial team just wanted to take this opportunity to use our platform to get the word out there on seniors that are still looking to play at the next level.
We have gathered a few of the Basketball submissions. Check out these senior spotlight selections.

Paul is looking to get into something in the technical engineering field.
"I'm really looking for a school that can challenge me on an educational level as well as basketball. My on court performance has been a little of getting up and down the court at a fast past, as I can score on a break almost with ease around the rim and over it being an athletic player when pushing the ball as well as shooting the ball at a high clip. My defense is what really sets me apart because I'm very vocal and active on that side of the floor and being aggressive."

Fort Bend Hightower's Kristopher O'Neal
It's no secret that this has been a special class for MacArthur Athletics.
The football team reached the postseason for the first time in more than a decade and the track squad is looking to build on a solid 2019 season.
"It's been big-time to change the culture here," Broderick Starnes Jr. said. "We've been the class to have turned it around and that's pretty special. It's been hard, but it's been a mindset of never giving up. We live by the saying here, 'Mac Pride Never Dies'."
At the epicenter of the Generals' success is Starnes – a dual-sport star who has often been the undercard.
