3 Stars by, Rated as a 83 by ESPN {80-89: High Major Prospect}

Huge potential signee for the Dawgs. Averaged 14 points and 11 rebounds on a team that plays a national schedule and finished 31-10 last season.Also recruited by Minnesota and Pittsburgh.

Darius Redding

6’4 205 Godby H.S. (FL)

averaged 18 points and 9 rebounds

{Excerpt from an recruiting article}
Redding is a super-athletic wing who entertained the crowd on a regular basis with his dunks in traffic. Whether in transition or the half court, any clear path to the rim became an instant camp highlight. He sprints the wing and is a threat to drive baseline or slash to the basket from either side of the floor. Redding can hang in the air, bounce off contact and finish an acrobatic shot in the lane with great elevation and concentration. He also has a good midrange pull-up, but must work to improve his jumper from behind the arc in order to keep the defense honest and set up his ability to get to the rim. Redding also makes his presence felt on the offensive glass. If he is not blocked out, expect a tip dunk or a very athletic putback basket. Redding also could be an excellent defender because of his good lateral movement and strength. As he continues to develop, Redding should be able to defend all three perimeter positions.
