Brian Steele To Move To South Carolina
By: Pittsburgh Basketball Report
Pittsburgh Basketball Report's #7 ranked player in the class of 2012 is moving to South
Carolina. PBR caught up with Steele at Hoop Mountain Camp, located at Slippery Rock University
to confirm. Steele was part of one of the top teams in WPIAL Class AAA this season, Hampton
HS, and would have been one of the top players in the WPIAL next year. This is a huge loss for
Hampton, who lost Tim Donegan and Bill Luther to graduation this year, and only returns about
20 minutes per game worth of varsity experience.
The reason for the move is because Steele's father Howard got a new job. The family will be
moving to Greenville, SC. Steele says that he will most likely be enrolling at Wade Hampton HS.
Steele has improved tremendously since the 09' season. At 6'4 1/2", Steele possesses point
guard abilities, with a three point shot that is deadly. His performance on the AAU circuit this
spring has gained him some attention from Division 1 schools. He has a very bright future ahead
of him, and the Pittsburgh area will definitely miss Brian Steele.
