Kyle Cuffe Jr. is one of the top sophomore guards in the country. He helped lead Blair Academy to a 24-3 record this past season. The four-star recruit holds numerous Division 1 offers from many schools around the country. I caught up with Kyle to discuss his sophomore basketball season and his latest offers.
Double G Sports: How do you think your season went this year? What were you able to show as a player?
Kyle Cuffe Jr.: I think my season went really well despite the three losses. I feel like my teammates and I competed and battled against top teams in the country.
