Houston, TX (Future150) -- Many basketball players are making the jump from middle school to high school this fall, but few are making the jump and expecting to play major minutes at the varsity level. One player who not only expects minutes at the varsity level, but also is eager to be a major contributor is De'Aaron Fox (2016) of Cypress Lakes High School in Houston, Texas.

At 6’2, Fox is a long, athletic guard who proved this summer that he is worth the hype. Playing with the Houston Defenders, the dynamic lefty averaged close to 15 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game.

Fox burst on the scene back in May when he joined Chris Gaston and the Houston Preps for the Summer Prep Showcase. Playing up with the 17U squad, he led the Preps into the finals after dropping 25 points in the semi-finals.

Fox, who attended Thorton Middle School, had a summer in which he saw his stock rise tremendously. Schools such as Baylor, Missouri, Houston, Texas Tech, and Nebraska have been hot on his trail and for good reason too; Fox is one of the smoothest players in Texas.

While his name is quickly making the rounds throughout the south, the freshman is focused on his upcoming season at Cy-Lakes. “I am excited to see what we can do at Cypress Lakes this year. The team lost quite a few seniors, but I know with guys like Nick Garth and Marcus Polk around, we will be tough to beat. We believe we can win our district and we want to make it deep into the playoffs, as well.”

As for recruiting, there is no doubt that numerous other major programs will be following Fox this year.

“I am looking for a school where I can get a good education, has nice facilities, but most of all it’s about my relationship with the staff. Obviously, everyone has his dream school, but I am wide open right now. I just want to continue to improve as a player and I know the recruiting will take care of itself,” said Fox.

A dedicated gym-rat, De'Aaron knows that he needs to continue to work, but there is no doubt in my mind he will continue to develop into a high-major prospect.

“I like to attack the rim and use my pull-up jumper, but as I get older I know I need to continue to improve my strength and being better with both hands because the competition will only get better.”

Where will he end up? Well, it is too early to tell. However, one thing is for sure, Cy-Lakes will have an exciting squad this season. Joining  De'Aaron Fox in the Cy-Lakes backcourt is Future150 Alum and Top-40 All-Star Nick Garth (2015).

Stay tuned for for more information on his recruitment as it develops.

Congrats on De’Aaron’s article. My nephew is doing the damn thing out there in the big H. What I really enjoyed when I read the article, was his response to the questions the report asked him! his answers were of a STUDENT AHLETE. He does his homework fist before going outside to play is what a STUDENT ATHLETE is for those who don’t know the meaning. Excellent job Lorraine and Aaron! Aaron, I put Lorraine first because, plays better than you, lol, just kidding. She’s the gift that gave you the gift. Let De’Aaron know that his big Uncle is watching his adventure to college and beyond.
