Yesterday at the Big Strick Classic, he was saying that Fordham was recruiting him the hardest.

The opportunity to have a ton of playing time for us in 2016 should intrigue him.

For a while I thought we'd only see layups, made three jumpers also. Kid looked good but competition looked weak. Anyone see him play against better competition?

Royals’ Alkins preps for hoops spotlight
By Joseph Staszewski

Rawle Alkins is embracing his new role as one of the most recognizable names and talents in New York City high school basketball.

The Christ the King rising sophomore was virtually an unknown in the five boroughs until late in the Royals’ run to the state Federation Class AA championship last season. The Canarsie native returned from living in Florida to go from junior varsity player to key reserve to arguably the face of Christ the King basketball in less than a year.

So Alkins wasn’t surprised when he was invited to play in the Big Strick Classic last weekend at Gaucho Gym in the Bronx. He called it an honor to be selected. The high school hoops all-star game honoring the memory of streetball legend John Strickland features the best high school boys’ basketball player in the tri-state area against the top talent from around the country. He scored six points in Team New York City’s 126-110 win over Team USA.

“I work hard, man,” Alkins said. “I work out every day. I think I deserve it.”

The 6-foot-4, ultra-athletic wing already has scholarship offers from Fordham, Villanova, Cincinnati and Seton Hall and interest from Notre Dame and Miami. He scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the Royals’ Federation title game win over Long Island Lutheran and treated that crowd to a ridiculous reverse dunk in transition that wowed the crowd at the Times Union Center.

Alkins said he would try to take time to pick the brains of Lincoln rising senior Isaiah Whitehead and Loughlin rising senior Khadeen Carrington about what it is like to be a star in New York City. He has enjoyed watching them play and competing alongside them for a weekend and believes that will help him on the court as well.

“I can try to take stuff from their games,” Alkins said.

It’s all in preparation for his expanded role with Christ the King. Alkins is ready to embrace replacing Jon Severe, New York state’s Mr. Basketball, in the Royals’ starting lineup and take on the job as his team’s go-to scorer. It’s something he thinks he has already done this summer while playing at team camps and summer league. He hopes for similar results for CK as Severe provided.

“I expect more from me,” Alkins said. “My take for basketball this year is just taking my team to another championship.”

Per Zags,

"Rawle Alkins is a 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of Christ the King High School and the best player in the New York area in the Class of 2016.

He holds offers from Villanova, Cincinnati, Seton Hall and Fordham, and has interest from Kentucky, Miami, St. John’s and others.

“It feels good knowing that in the future I don’t have to pay for school,” Alkins said.

“He is the most complete sophomore I have ever coached,” CTK coach Joe Arbitello said.

In the above video from the Big Strick Classic, Alkins talks about winning the New York State Federation Tournament of Champions last year and gives an update on his recruitment."

New York, NY (Future150) -- New York is home to the mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden. It is also home to many other historically great hoops spots, such as Rucker Park and Dyckman. Legends have played on these courts, and the high school ranks in the city have been historically loaded over the years.

That is until recently, when most New York City players started leaving for prep schools to either get their grades in order or to further expand their games. Despite the mass exodus, some players remain. Isaiah Whitehead has carved out a great career at Lincoln. Before him, Omar Calhoun was dominant at Christ the King. Make no mistake, there is still plenty of talent in the city.

One of NYC's brightest young stars happens to play at Christ the King as well; Rawle Alkins. He might only be a rising sophomore, but there's no doubting that he could be the next big thing in the city.

The 6-foot-4 guard knows the pressure that comes with playing in NYC and says it motivates him to be better.

"Coming from here just makes me want to be one of the best," he told Future150.
Alkins recently played in the Big Strick Classic and showed what he can do. He has a decent shot and is pretty athletic. While it is clear that his game still needs work, Alkins could be one of the top players in his class when it's all said and done. Despite that, Alkins doesn't feed into the hype machine; he's just focused on getting better.

"I don't pay attention to the rankings or anything like that, I just want to play basketball," Alkins said.

Over the summer, Alkins picked up a couple of offers from Cinncinatti and Seton Hall. Alkins has also started to draw interest from Miami (FL), Notre Dame, Villanova, Fordham, St.John's, and Kentucky. Interest should only continue to grow for the Christ the King product as the high school season begins. It is clear that Alkins has a chance to be special. What makes it more impressive is he can do it all with the New York skyline at his back.
