Braun is a more than capable shooter from deep who possesses good length. He is a stretch four who is capable of finishing around the rim and above the rim. He has a good motor and moves well without the basketball.
Katal uses his length well on the defensive end to contest shots and protect the paint. Offensively, he is able to shoot it at a decent rate from 3. His motor is continuing to get better which is aiding him in making more and more plays on both sides of the floor. Katal has the tools to be a solid prospect.
Elliott is long and has a decent tough around the rim. Further, he has an above average motor. His footwork needs to continue to improve in order to maximize his potential. Lastly, he has a consistent 15 foot mid-range jumper.
Houston uses his height and body well to corral rebounds. He seals for space on the block as well which enables him to get deep seals and easy layups. Moreover, he has a smooth jump shot, and he is a good passer. He has a good feel for the game and is a solid prospect.
Hamilton has grown a couple of inches this off-season and has improved his finishing around the rim. He has a nice hook shot over his right and left shoulder. Further, he is a good passer out of the post and has a decent mid-range jumper. He has a lot of upside and has improved greatly while playing with Team Zona this off-season.
Tillapaugh made the move to Wickenburg and had a lot of success this past season. He is a versatile prospect who can play on the perimeter and on the block. While he is best suited with his back to the basket, he shot the basketball well from the perimeter this past season.
Swan is the longest prospect in this class. He is extremely raw, but has good length and height. His upside is there which is why he is playing with one of the top club teams in the state. As he continues to improve, he could end up being a legitimate college prospect.
