It has been a busy summer for ESPN 100 point guard Rashawn Powell. He took part in both the Deron Williams Nike Basketball Skills Academy and LeBron James Skills Academy, and he has played in multiple AAU tournaments, most recently the Peach State Invitational.

Powell seems to improve every time he gets on the floor, and college coaches are starting to notice. University of Alabama head coach Anthony Grant has been so impressed with Powell's play this summer that he offered the Florida native a scholarship.

“It felt good,” Powell said of the offer. “I had played in front of the assistant coach, and I felt like I needed to wait for the head coach to see me play. I just felt like I needed to go harder. When the head coach offered me, I just felt like I did pretty good in front of him, and that’s why he offered.
