Shawn Alston is a 6'3" 170 lb. shooting guard from Haverford, PA and plays his high school basketball for The Haverford Private School. He's also been a part of the currently under-16 Team Final on the AAU circuit for a few years now. While his recruitment is a little ways out from really picking up

Alston was the co-MVP of the Inter-Ac League in 2012-13, and according to City of Basketball Love, is best labeled right now as a pure scorer. He recently began playing some point guard in an effort to balance out his offensive game, so it will be interesting so see how he develops and where he lands once the 2015 recruiting rankings expand.
Alston already has an offer from Penn State in hand, and is also hearing from Kentucky, Michigan, and Providence. With the former two already tracking him, it's probably a safe bet to say that Alston will be a hot commodity by the end of the summer after the AAU circuit finishes up.
