Detroit Country Day senior Dylan Sandhu has one of the prettiest, and most effective jumpshots in Michigan.
The 6’2 shoting guard had a stellar performance at the Motor City Roundball Classic with 23 points and six triples.
Here’s our take on Dylan’s game:
Elite Shooter Off the Catch – Sandhu is one of the best shooters in the state from distance when his feet are set, if not the very best. His form is textbook, with no wasted motion, a high release point, good rotation and superb balance.
Off Ball Movement/Relocation – a big part of Dylan’s ability to find space is sliding to either side to create a better passing angle for the ballhandler to deliver the ball. The extra 3-4 steps that he takes allows the time and space he needs to get off clean looks where he’s nearly automatic.
Offensive Rebounding – a very underrated aspect of Sandhu is his ball pursuit on the offensive glass. He consistently crashes the glass from the wing and covers a ton of ground on numerous possessions and comes up with clean rebounds at times and a ton of loose balls to give his team extra possessions.
Areas for Development:
Ballhandling/Shot Creation – Dylan is almost strictly a catch and shoot prospect at this point, if he can develop his handle enough to attack closeouts consistently he becomes much more dangerous. He seems to be developing in that regard, as he was able to attack a closeout once against Novi that resulted in 2 made free throws. He needs to continue improving that facet of his game in order to become a more well rounded player.
Athleticism – Sandhu needs to get a bit quicker and add 20 pounds of muscle mass. That will help enable him to attack closeouts and finish at the rim, while being able to adequately defend the perimeter.
