Conner Chalfant, USI’s latest recruit

I didn’t get a chance to add any comments from Conner Chalfant to my USI signing story in print and online on Monday night. Chalfant is the 6-9 senior from Christian Academy of Indiana, a school in New Albany, who has only recently been playing varsity ball. “I played in leagues all through elementary and middle school, but I didn’t seriously pick up a basketball until we got a new coaching staff two years ago at my high school,” he said. “They really did a great job of drawing the best out of me.”

He said this year is officially his third playing on the varsity, but he’s really only in his second year on the team. “My junior year I started out playing on the JV and sitting on the bench with the varsity,” he said. “Last year coach did a good job of getting me some playing time.”

He said he needs to work on his post game for college. “At the high school level I’m pretty good at posting up. But at the college level I know that post-ups I make in a high school game will not work. I would also like to work on my long-range (shooting) game. That won’t be a (main) focus for me, but that will definitely be an added bonus if I do it. I’m a decent shooter from 15 foot, but nothing spectacular.”
