John McGraw's Thanksgiving Tour of West TN

Munford HS – Coach Steve Poindexter welcomed us to his gym for practice on a day off from school. He’s got a very talented team, one that’s on par talent-wise or maybe even a notch better than Dyer Co. He’s a great defensive coach and we saw why….they spend a lot of time perfecting their defensive craft. The knock on his team’s from talking to some locals is their inability to score and as a coach if you are going to spend a lot of time working on defense than you are going to have to sacrifice spending time on something else so it’s certainly understandable. The 1 thing I really liked is his kids really understand the concept of helpside defense. They spent a ton of time on it. His 2015 group is solid with Lindsey Owen a big thick strong post player already committed to Christian Brothers. She’s definitely a solid pick up for them in the post. Alex Wherry is a 5’10-5’11ish guard/wing jack of all trades type of kid. I heard she has an offer at Motlow and that seems like a good fit for her…she’s a TN juco kid all the way, a solid well coached ball player who’s not great at anything but not bad in any area either. 2015 Phenicia Howard is a strong explosive guard who has some definite ability. She’s a solid D-2/NAIA/Juco prospect, who if she goes to juco could be a low mid major caliber prospect. The real treasure at Munford are the high level young players. 2018 Gabby Crawford is a 6’2 forward/post player who has great footwork, is vocal on defense and works hard almost anytime she’s on the court. She’s definitely worth monitoring on the BCS level and she’s already heard extensively from Memphis, Texas A & M, Vanderbilt and South Florida. 2017 Johnna Jones (5’7) is another one of Munford’s young kids that will wind up in D-1. She’s got an amazing body for a 2017, not surprising since her Dad is one of the most prolific running backs in UT Vols history. She can shoot it and handle and of course is super athletic. Definitely worth monitoring at the mid-major and higher level.
