CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Combo guard Perry “P.J.” Dozier (Columbia, S.C./Spring Valley) is a high IQ prospect with a nice feel for the game and a solid skill-set on the perimeter. The nation’s No. 22 rising junior had his talents on full display at this week’s NBPA 100 Camp, giving evaluators a glimpse of a potential very productive future college player.

The 6-foot-5, 180-pound guard has nearly 10 teams pursuing him, with that number likely to rise significantly this summer and into his junior high school season.

According to Dozier, Ohio State, Kansas, NC State, Indiana, South Carolina, Clemson, Wichita State and Georgia are currently recruiting him.

Dozier excels in transition with his ability to rebound and push the ball on the bounce or via an advance pass. Dozier has a knack for crafty finishes that end above the rim and he does a great job of using his length and footwork to complete plays in the paint. Dozier has a nice rhythm dribble pull-up and splashes the open 3 off the catch. He also won’t hesitate to attack with quick slashes from the wing in between defenders.
