When you hear the name Kuran Iverson, the last name is the first thing that comes to mind. “It’s just a last name,” Iverson said. “I don’t worry about the last name. The name at the end of the day doesn’t get you where you need to go.” Iverson’s goal is not to have the same game as his cousin’s, Allen Iverson.
And so far, he has been successful at doing that. At 6-foot-8, he is considered a wing player, although he can score from the post as a power forward. This is why some rankings may be misleading if they consider him a power forward rather than a small forward, his natural position. He loves to drive, drive, and drive some more. And he scores with ease. Iverson basically resembles a point-forward at times, just like Magic Johnson.
Kentucky had been after Iverson earlier in the year and is still looking at him, even though he has yet to take a visit. He transferred to Fishburne Military Academy in Virginia after three years in his native Connecticut. Florida, as well as Memphis and UConn are high on his list.
