Part 3 of the YahooSports Article – Make or Break July Period for NCAA Basketball

We were gone last week in Las Vegas to wrap up the July viewing period, but I wanted to be sure to share part 3 of the story on my son, Zac.  Part four should be coming out later today or tomorrow, so I’ll share that one soon too.  It’s been a very interesting and eye-opening experience this year.  I’m so proud of Zac and all the hard work he is putting in.  For any of you who have kids that are athletes, you know exactly what I’m talking about.  They give up a lot to be dedicated to their sport.

Make-or-break month: Rigorous schedule doesn’t give Zac Nuttall time to stress
By Jeff Eisenberg | The Dagger – Wed, Jul 25, 2012 9:00 AM EDT

To provide a window into the pressure facing borderline recruits trying to earn their first Division I scholarship offers, Yahoo! Sports will track guard Zac Nuttall during the July evaluation period. This is the third installment in the series.

Unlike most of his peers who rush to the DMV to take their driving test soon after they turn 16, Zac Nuttall is in no hurry to get his license.

The 17-year-old has spent so much time this summer playing basketball, working out with trainers or getting up shots at the gym that car rides with his parents to practices or games are the only time he has to rest. Nuttall napped much of the time the family spent in the car last week driving 120 miles a day to and from the Best of the Summer Tournament in Anaheim.

“A lot of his buddies will say, ‘I can’t believe you don’t have your driver’s license yet,’” mother Kristy Nuttall said. “He’ll tell them, ‘I don’t have a problem being driven around.’”

The extra rest Nuttall got courtesy of his parents could only have aided his attempts to convince college coaches in attendance in Anaheim he’s worthy of a spot on their rosters. The point guard played five games in three nights, helping lead BTI Select to three wins in its first four games before its tournament ended Friday night with a one-point overtime loss in the quarterfinals.
