Recently, the 16 year old 10th grader has elevated his game while playing on the national circuit with playing with USA Basketball and with Arkansas Wings (AAU). His overall skills have improved noticeably, especially his shooting (range).
Considered one of the top 20 players in the Class of 2018, Vanover was just recently named to the 2015-16 USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team. He was a member of the 2015 USA Basketball U16 National Team that captured the gold medal with a perfect 5-0 record at the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.
Ballislife’s cameras caught Vanover’s first games of his 10th grade high school season when Arkansas Baptist High School (Ark.) was playing in the 10th Annual Coventry Health Tournament of Champions in Washington, IL against strong regional and national competition.
Named to the All-tournament team, Vanover averaged over 20 PPG.
Last season as a freshman in 2014-15, he aided his team to a 25-8 record, the 2015 district and regional titles and the Arkansas 4A tournament semifinals.
Connor averaged 14.8 ppg, 9.4 rpg and 3.2 bpg, while starting all 33 games.
If one Vanover on a team isn’t enough, Connor has twin brothers who are 7-foot and 7-foot-1. 7ft brother Brandon is a senior and Connor’s teammate at Baptist.
Following his 9th grade season, Connor picked up high major offers from Ole Miss, Alabama and Arkansas. Expect that list to grow!
After seeing Connor Vanover open his season, we expect to see Arkansas Baptist contending for an Arkansas state title.
Check out some raw footage from Vanover in action at the Coventry Health Tournament of Champions in Washington, IL.
