St. Paul VI Catholic (Va.) High School forward Garrett Sundra fits the mold of a modern-day power forward.

The 6-foot-11, 205-pound Sundra is mobile and has an excellent jump shot for his size and position. He knocked down 36% of his 3-point attempts with Team Takeover during Session 2 of the Nike EYBL circuit from April 28-30.

College programs have taken notice.

“Some schools that have been reaching out these past few weekends, I would say Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Miami, of course, Providence, Butler, some of the few schools that have just been reaching out,” Sundra told LifeWallet Sports.

The Hurricanes were one of the first high-major schools to offer Sundra, who says that UM head coach Jim Larrañaga “texts me about once a week.”

“I really like the way Coach L coaches. He coached one of my high school coaches, Lamar Butler in that Final Four run at George Mason, so that’s super cool to me. I really like the run he had, the Final Four run this year,” Sundra said about Larrañaga and the Hurricanes. “The guys were playing great basketball, flying around all over the place. Even in the ACC Tournament, they just had this swagger to them that was just not like the regular season. They were just playing great.”

Sundra, who is eyeing a commitment by September, has made one official visit to Butler in late-October 2022.

“I really enjoyed going to Butler, it was a great decision. I’m glad I could get up there,” Sundra said. “I think it was late October, and I got a chance to have dinner with [Butler head coach Thad] Matta. just talk to him and really get to know him better, really get to know all the coaches. They have such a great coaching staff there.”

“That’s one thing that I really liked about Butler is just how all the coaches are just so welcoming and they’re just nice to all their guys, even after the games. I mean, they’re just phenomenal coaches and I think Butler uses their four-man, their forward a lot, which I can appreciate for sure.”

Sundra has also made unofficial visits to Rhode Island, George Washington, Virginia Tech and Fairfield. He and Team Takeover will return to EYBL action from May 12-14 in Dallas for Session 3.
