Malone, who signed a National Letter of Intent during the early signing of the NCAA, is a 6-7, 210-pound native of Chicago. He began his prep career at Simeon and then finished his senior high school season at Lincoln Park High School, where he led the team in all major statistical categories including points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
Malone is currently attending We Are United Prep in Springfield, where he will play under coach Rob Yanders for a year after graduation. He opened the season with an average of 18 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
“Since then, Malone has had an immediate impact on our program,” said Simmons. “His size, length and skills make him an extremely versatile player. He can play and defend multiple positions and create tough matchups for our opponents. Most importantly, he is a tireless worker and a winner.”
