Elite Prospect Zone's featured athlete of the month is Deondre Otis from Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in San Francisco, CA. Through hard work and determination Deondre has seen steady progress in his basketball career. Deondre started his career (and still plays for) the nationally recognized AAU program the San Francisco Rebels.


Deondre is a meticulous student of the game as well as an excellent student in the classroom. He carries a 3.0 GPA, a tough task considering Sacred Heart's rigorous and demanding college prep curriculum. On the court he serves as an extension of the coach. During the game he is constantly giving direction and instruction to his teammates and operates as a quiet maestro. He leads by example and has a calm confidence about himself.


Mitch Stephens, senior writer and editor for CBS Max Preps, tweeted on January 20, "SHC Deondre Otis looks like a definite Division I point guard here at a big D1 Arena, Haas Pavilion. Scoring, distributing, running show."


Deondre is an adept and clever ball handler with good fundamentals. He is a solid guard that can handle the ball and has decent shooting range. He is also a stout defensive player. His broad shoulders and lengthy wingspan make it difficult for opposing guards to blow by him.


One of the more seasoned and experienced players in the bay area, Deondre has been a member of the varsity team for three years (two years as a starter) and has played in two state championships. He is used to the bright lights and has played on television on several occasions. Deondre recently had somewhat of a breakout game when he scored 20 points against a highly ranked El Cerrito team with solid backcourt play and two tough athletic guards.


We are pleased to announce that Deondre is currently a candidate for player of the year in the rugged and highly competitive WCAL, one of the best leagues in the state. Several colleges have expressed interest in the 6' guard. As of late his stock has risen incrementally. If he can guide his team to a third consecutive state championship he may quietly find himself inserted into the conversations of some unsuspecting college coaches. Purportedly Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount and the University of San Diego have him on their radar. As it stands Deondre has the ability to be a solid guard at the mid major level.
