Tahlik Chavez is a 6-1 160 point guard in the class of 2019 that plays for Lake Ridge high school in Grand Prairie, Texas. He has a killer shot with great vision and quickness. I had a talk with him about his recruitment so far for Stock Risers.
LJ: What programs have been recruiting you the hardest?
Tahlik: Prairie View A&M, Jackson State, Newberry College, Barry University, Navy, Hinds CC, Bethel College
LJ: What are your averages this season? What did you average last season?
Tahlik: 23 ppg this season, last season 12 ppg
LJ: What visits have you went on? What visits do you have scheduled?
Tahlik: Prairie View A&M is the only visit I’ve been on since I de-committed from UC Riverside.
LJ: What about your skills set helps you make the most impact on the court?
Tahlik: I am a great shooter which creates spacing on the court for everyone else and with the ball in my hands I could create for others and I am a lethal scorer which attracts attention for drop offs at the basket or kick outs for a 3. I am a leader, I am coachable, a hard worker and give my 110% in everything I do.
LJ: What struggles did you have to overcome to get to this point?
Tahlik: I was previously committed to a school that made false promises to me over the AAU live periods during the summer and they told me in September that they didn’t have enough money to give me a scholarship even though they really just gave my scholarship away to a big man.
LJ: What were your stats last game?
Tahlik: We played Everman High School, although I had an off game I still found a way to put the ball in the basketball and get to the free throw line. 17pts 3 rebounds 2ast 2steals
LJ: What offers do you have at this time?
LJ: What are you looking for in a program?
Tahlik: A program that will push me to be a better person on and off the court each and every day.
