Devonte Fuller is an impressive young combo guard. Already standing at 6 foot 2 with long legs is a nightmare in the open floor with his speed, high motor, and physicality. He can fill up the stat sheet like no other. He is a consistent mid range shooter and attacks the basket with power. Even though he has a skinny frame his power comes from his lower body where he is able to elevate over anyone in his grade level.
Going into his freshman year next season at Shelton High School in Shelton, WA. Devonte knows the High Climbers are in a stage of rebuilding and this is his opportunity to come in and solidify his position as a leader of his team. With his athleticism and strong moves to the basket Devonte will add a much needed scoring option for the High Climbers. During the AAU season he will be playing for TEAM UP BASKETBALL out of Lacey, WA.
I got a chance to catch up with Devonte and ask him some questions:
1. How is this season going and what would you say are your biggest strengths?
“This past season for me has been a very successful one. I was able to learn so many new things and bond with a really good group of players. My greatest strengths are a mix of being coachable, having a positive attitude and athleticism. I am also very good at fighting for tough rebounds and pushing the ball down court off of a steal or a fast break opportunity. My court vision is also one of my best qualities being able to read the defense in order to either drive to the hoop or make a pass opening up a shot opportunity.”
2. With the off-season right around the corner. What are you looking to improve on?
“This off-season I’m looking to improve my ability to finish near the basket, boxing out defenders, working on my shooting form, range, and speed.”
On June 3-4 Devante competed in the LEGENDS CLASSIC by HOOPSOURCE in PORTLAND, OR. This tournament hosted some of the top programs in the Portland metropolitan area. Averaging over 10 points a game and grabbing over 7 rebounds a game. Devonte put together a string a very impressive games including some tantalizing blocked shots that flew into the stands.
As of right now there has been no recruitment going on for this young man.
