Zacharie Matulu is this week’s boys’ Standout Player of the Week for the Ballers Paradise Top 50 event. Matulu soared through the air every time you looked up. The junior guard from Shaker High School was all over the place last Friday night.
Matulu’s athleticism stood out most to college scouts during his Baller Paradise outings. This past week was the last boys’ Top 50 qualifier before the June basketball camp.
The Shaker Bison and Matulu should be looking to improve from a disappointing first-round exit in this year’s sectional matchup against the La Salle Cadets. Matulu looks forward to the AAU season as he will be competing with Adirondack Wild this spring and summer.
Matulu told me his dream schools are UNC and Duke, two top-tier schools that just met in the Final Four last week. With his end goal being playing professionally, Matulu isn’t shying away from having high standards entering his senior year.
Ballers Paradise is an invite-only exposure event that is showcasing the Capital Regions’ elite boys and girls basketball players [ages 14-18]. The boy’s showcases have come to a conclusion. The top 25 boys are being selected and posted on https://ballersparadise.org/ to see who will get the chance to go to Camp of The Woods Lake Pleasant this June!
