This interview features #64 on the ESPN top 100 2020 Point Guard L.J. Cryer of Katy Morton Ranch (TX), a top 100 prospect and committed to Baylor:
Kendyl Provost: Describe what LJ Cryer brings to a team — What’s underrated about your game?
LJ Cryer: I bring a winning mentality to the team, so if you’re on my team you should never feel like we’re going to lose no matter who’s the opponent. I’m an underrated passer…
KP: What are some areas of improvement?
LC: I need to improve on finishing high off the backboard, around the basket ,and playing more off of jump stops…
KP: Name four words that best describe you.
LC: Leader, Passionate, Hard-worker, and Winner…
KP: When did you first start playing basketball? 
LC: I started playing basketball when I was about four years old…
KP: What do you want to accomplish before your high school career is over?
LC: I want to go undefeated and win a state championship…
KP: Is there anyone you model your game after?
LC: Nah, I just take what I like from other players and try to add it to my game…
KP: How did you come back from an ankle injury this past summer?
LC: Rehab and rest helped me come back from my ankle injury. After Peach Jam [Nike EYBL], I had the time to really focus on recovering…
KP: I was recently at the game when you scored 45 points vs. Dickinson at Super 16 last weekend — What went in to that performance?
LC: My last performance against Dickinson was a statement game. I just wanted to show everyone that I’ve been working and I’m back…
KP: Who would you say has influenced you most up to this point in life?
LC: My parents because they invested a lot of money and time into me. They also go out of their way to try to get me anything I want. I greatly appreciate them…
KP: Lastly, you committed to Baylor this past summer. How familiar are you with fellow commits Dain Dainja and Zach Loveday?
LC: I haven’t got the chance to talk to Zach yet, but I’m sure he’s a good player. Me and Dain were recently on an official together and he’s really fun to be around. He’s also a really good player. I’m really looking forward to playing with them both…
Provost’s take: LJ Cryer gives Scott Drew a dynamic scoring guard who’s extremely difficult to contain off the dribble. He’s a lights out shooter from anywhere on the floor and he can get others involved as well. Now healthy, there’s little doubt that he’s a top sixty player in the country as he looks to bring the Texas 6A state title to Morton Ranch.
