A 6-foot-6 all-state point guard

Jerry DiPaola in Pittsburgh:

Sewickley Academy guard Tom Droney, whose 40-point effort led Sewickley Academy to a victory against Serra Catholic in the WPIAL Class A championship this year, said today he has made a verbal commitment to Davidson.

Droney, who will be a senior this year, said he also considered Harvard, Boston College and Virginia, but he chose Davidson because of his relationship with coach Bob McKillop.

He is a tremendous coach and proven winner. It is also a place where I think I can step in and play right away, Droney said.

His high school coach: No. 1 is his court vision. No. 2, he is a tremendous passer, both off the dribble and off the catch. No. 3 is his shooting ability. He has improved himself so much as a shooter. No. 4 is his work ethic. He wants to be the best and he is going to work as hard as he needs to and then he is going to work after that.

Scout. Rivals. Post-Gazette profile. Worth revisiting. Also this.
