Destiny Pemberton

Destiny Pemberton:  SG 5’8” 145lbs. Class of 2020

Harker Heights High School in Killeen, Texas
Academics:  GPA: 4.0
Potential Major: Biology

Destiny is a versatile player with good court vision and a high basketball IQ. She knows how to create space on the floor, with and without the ball in her hands.   Defensively, she reads the floor like a football defensive back which leads to creating plays for her teammates. She can play in a system that requires man to man defensive skills and possesses good lateral movement defensively (keeps ball-handler in front of her). Offensively, she can shoot from three point range and can finish at the rim.

Destiny loves the game of basketball and does not want to stop after high school. She has always loved being a student athlete and dreams of playing in college.  This has been a goal of hers since she started playing basketball in the 7th grade.

Destiny is a play-maker and a leader. If you need clarification, you can ask her coaches and teammates. Destiny was asked about her best game and she said, “The best game I played was very high energy and fast-paced. My teammates and I were all in sync and the ball was distributed well. I got 15 points and 7 assists. It seemed like all of my teammates were in a rhythm and scoring was across the board.”  Notice that she mentioned her teammates twice when speaking of her best game.

Destiny does not really have a dream school, but wishes to attend a school that has a good academic and athletic program.

Recruiting Director:  Virginia Beach, Virginia

My name is LaMar Linton and I was born and raised in Abbeville, Louisiana. I wanted nothing more than to play sports growing up and I played every sport that my school offered. I joined the United States Army at 17 and spent most of my time serving my country. When I retired from the military I started coaching youth sports: girl’s softball, co-ed flag football, boy’s tackle football, and youth soccer.

In most of these seasons we went undefeated. It was truly a passion and a reward watching the children learn and achieve a win with their team, and even with a loss it was always a teachable moment. With over 10 years of coaching experience, my passion is getting the student athletes and their families to understand the transition into college. Also, to educate both the student athlete and his or her parents.
