Crestview's Baylark strives to be his best

Published: Monday, December 30, 2013 at 03:40 PM.

He did say he wants to play at a Division I school close enough to Crestview that his parents could see him play. He hasn't ruled out playing junior college ball at a school like Northwest Florida State College. And he would entertain offers from a Division II program such as the University of West Florida.

Academic options also will play a big role in Baylark's decision as he hopes to study sports medicine.

Watson believes Baylark has the skill sets to be a good college player.

 "He’s going to play the point at the next level, and that’s what he does for us so it shouldn’t be any different," Watson said. "He handles the ball well enough to do that. We really need for him to do a little more for us offensively.

"At the next level (college) he probably won’t have to do that (score) quite as much even though he probably could. I think he will be a great college point guard. I really do."

As Baylark moves from high school to college basketball, there will always be those who try to compare him to another player.

But he's not into the comparison games.
