“I work a lot on my footwork, my conditioning and trying to become more explosive,” said Mauldin, whose father Clint played for West’s 1997 2A state champions.
Mauldin, a first team all-district player, obviously is drawing recruiting interest, some of it from Division I schools, and he’s made visits. Plenty of offers should come, but he’s not going to rest on what he’s accomplished. He’s going to keep pushing himself. He said he’s not planning to play more AAU ball this summer, but he’s going to keep drilling, running and polishing his fundamentals.
“This kid’s coachability is off the charts,” Gurley said. “That’s why he’s going to keep getting better.”
