Paul Rowley Ranked #10 in the State of Virginia by

Yahoo Sports: Ranking - VirginiaPreps Class of 2014 Top Basketball Prospects

May 2013:

Some Quotes from Paul’s play at the Hoop Group Jam Fest in Hampton, VA May 2013:

“Go ahead and issue a shooter alert for Paul Rowley. A tall and rangy small forward who checks in at 6-foot-6 (maybe pushing 6-foot-7), the product of Leesburg (Va.) Loudoun Valley can stretch a defense. For Virginia Elite, he can hit from 25 feet and he plays an emotional game. He's a good athlete and a great student who has most of the Ivy League, along with places such as William & Mary and George Mason, taking a look.”

Note - Paul is 6'7 1/2" in shoes measured May 2013

and another one:

“Paul Rowley | 6-7 Wing | Virginia Elite | 2014

Rowley scored eight straight points in VA Elite’s win over DC Assault Blue on Saturday to lead the team to a Sweet 16 berth. The tall, wiry wing forward is a consistent long-range threat and is sneaky athletic with the ability to finish above the rim. He possesses stellar passing instincts for a forward and likes to rattle opponents with his constant chatter and activity during dead ball situations.” says:

"Finally, if you are looking for a sleeper in the big-wing department, allow us to introduce you to 6-foot-6 (maybe 6-foot-7) Paul Rowley. A product of Leesburg (Va.) Loudoun County, Rowley has great size for a shooter and is as dangerous from deep as just about anybody scouted in April or May. Also a pretty fluid athlete, Rowley has been hearing from mostly high-level academic schools due to his outstanding grades. Count him as somebody that would like to see again and that college coaches should be doing some more investigation on."

Once again we note that Paul was measured at 6' 7 1/2" in shoes recruiting page link: Paul Rowley -

Had an outstanding week at Hoop Group Academic Elite (Nations #1 Exposure Camp) - during day one tryouts was moved up to compete with the rising Seniors in the Ivy League. Recognized on website as a Day 2 Outstanding Performer:

Paul Rowley | Loudon Valley (VA) | 6-7 F | 2014
Rowley is a long and mobile forward prospect who can play on the post when needed. He excels in one-on-one situations and uses a quick burst to get into the lane. Around the basket, Rowley takes advantage of his length to hit runners over smaller defenders.”

“The best of the best at Academic Elite II separated themselves from the pack and were awarded with selection to an all-star game. Academic II played host to two all-star games; one for the Ivy League (12th grade) and one for the Patriot League (9th-11th grade).”

High Basketball IQ - very coachable, team player.


“I am involved in my community through basketball. I volunteer at a youth camp done through my high school and I love sharing my love and knowledge of the game with a generation even younger than mine. Basketball is such a great tool to enhance one's self individually and as a team, and helping elementary aged kids learn skills like how to work as a team and how to persevere through difficulty is just awesome.”


“I try to lead in almost every aspect of my life. On the court I'm incredibly vocal and positive; I'm the kid who whether or not we're up or down twenty is cheering furiously until the end. I try and always give support to my teammates even after a terrible play, encouraging them so they know they'll do better next time. In the classroom I'm just as vocal and positive. I always lead by example by showing respect and cordiality towards teachers and classmates.”

Healthy Athletic Performance:

“As a student-athlete, staying healthy is a big part of performance. Recently I've been trying to put on weight and in these efforts I've been counting calories, keeping a log of everything that I eat. Basketball players aren't made in the off-season because there is no off-season; there is always basketball to be played somewhere. I am in the weight room and doing conditioning work constantly and always finding enough time to sleep. There is never a break from basketball, but there is always time for extra conditioning and strength-training.”
