We'll all feel better once we see commitments announced

He did.

He started out as their 2G. This is the Catholic HS Championship in NYC Autry's sophomore year. One of the best HS games in NYC history, with 5 guys who would go on to be stars in college.

Corey Allen was Tolentine's PG, Autry played the two. They also had Malik Sealy (St. John's) and Brian Reese (UNC) at forward.

Archbishop Molloy had Kenny Anderson at the point, and Robert Werdann (St. John's) at center.

 
Red was one of the most coveted sr in the country

Big upset, though, that he and Brian Reese were beat out by fellow New Yorkers Derrick Phelps and Khalid Reeves of Christ the King for the city championship. Both Phelps & Reeves played for the East at the Mickey Dee's game in 1990 with Autry and Brian Reese of Tolentine.
 
Yeah, Red was 100% a PG. Brian Reese was his SG, and their SO year Malik Sealy was their SF.

As a senior. As a soph, he was the SG, Reese and Sealy were their two forwards, and another 6-5 forward completed their front line.
 
Yeah the whole reason it was that way before was that we couldn't go after a big chunk of true point guards because they were too short to play the zone well. The thing I was most looking forward to with Red playing man-to-man was being able to consistently get good point guards.

Ditto.
 
" we don't have a full sense yet for who else is going to be on the roster."

sounds like right now you're planning a grand trip with no vehicle and no map.
As long as Red isn't planning like that.

I forgot that Tolentine lacked a true center and Sealy actually played center. There was a player smaller than Red that started, but Red was the real PG.

Later in his career, as he got more experience, he became an elite PG. He had 11 assists in the McDonad's game. But he had to grow into that role. Some guys are BORN point guards, like Kenny Anderson or Pearl Washington.

Autry is one of the guys who had to learn the role. Fortunately, he played for outstanding coaches in high school and AAU ball. Coaching used to be so much more about skills development in the last century.

For sure. And, NYC point guards took pride in the lineage. The great ones could pass, score and defend…all with style.
