This fall was my first time seeing Geneva 2020 small forward Nate Santos in a while as he had been injured.  The 6’6” wing is the younger brother of Mizzou wing KJ Santos.  Nate has some of the similar tools that his brother showed with his size for position and length.  Can also shoot it from the perimeter.  Smooth looking shot from beyond the arc.  Santos shows he can handle it some as well using a shot fake and blowing by his man.  Lots of upside here and should be monitored by D1 programs!

He was part of a special team last year at Geneva.

“It was a pretty good season.  We started off 26-0 then unfortunately I had stress fracture in my tibia.  It was a good experience though because I was the only freshman pulled up.  I learned a lot from the seniors.  We are focused on winning this season.”

Santos spoke about the biggest assets he can bring to a team now and at the next level.

“I feel like off the dribble my three point and mid-range shots.  I can use my length to get to the basket.  I need to work on my strengths.”

In a camp setting like the Pangos Camp what is he trying to show?

“Show how I can improve my teammates along with my individual skill set.  Show how I can make a team better.”

Expect Santos to have a breakout sophomore campaign!
