Austin Peay Transfer Will Make A Difference For Shelton State
As a freshman at Austin Peay, sophomore Albert Lynch Jr had a major role as starting point guard. Senior Jerome Clyburn had gone down with an injury and Lynch had to feel his shoes the minute he stepped foot on campus.
Making his debut with a role he had been familiar with his entire life, Lynch was the drive behind Austin Peay's victories in a preseason trip to Canada. Averaging double figures throughout the trip with 17 points in his first exhibition game with a victory. He followed the next game with 12 points.
Lynch's freshman year was going smoothly until the team started to plummet and so was his playing time. Going from starter, barely playing and finally to incosistent minutes, it seemed as if the entire team was just in a blur. Lynch wasn't the only one affected as his teammates received the same treatment.
Opting to transfer to Shelton State Community College, after his freshman year, the Blount High School product seemed to find success when making transfers. While in high school, his head coach decided to resign at Williamson High School in Mobile and AJ left as well, transferring to Blount High School. There he had a stellar season averaging 18 points and watching his recruitment pick up as well.
Lynch's recruitment wasn't always so lovely. Entering his senior season, he had several division one programs on his trail following his play at GASO and the AAU Super Showcase. Kennesaw St and Missouri St were hot on his trail then things just halted. AJ found himself back at square one as those schools received commitments from other players at his position.
After a mixtape courtesy of us (BAMAMIXTAPE) Lynch's recruitment was back on the up and up. Now at Shelton State, Lynch will be asked upon again to lead his team to victory in which Shelton State is quite used to being the most winningest JUCO program located in Tuscaloos, Alabama. Of course winningis quite familiar in Tuscaloosa as the University of Alabama is also the most winningest program in college football as far as national championships.
