Thailand Elder / 6’1″ / SG / Allen /  Level: Low-Mid Major

Strengths:

  • Long and rangy guard who bring a lot of energy to the game on both ends
  • Pretty stroke from deep; knocks down deep balls in catch-and-shoot situations 
  • Aggressive slasher; uses wiry frame to slip through cracks in the defense to score craftly around the basket
  • Has stupid elite bounce; Gets off the floor with ease; Two-foot supreme leaper who can dunk off standing vert
  • Solid ball handler; willing passer; do-it-all type of guard

Weaknesses:

  • Not a point guard; but is too small to be a full-time shooting guard 
  • Questionable decision making; at times will force the action with his passes
  • Very skinny frame; will need to add strength

Hayden Hefner / 6’4″ / SG /  Nederland  Level: Midplus-High Major

Strengths:

  • Bouncy two guard with a sweet stroke from deep; shoots it well off the catch 
  • Can heat up three; scores a lot from behind the arc or in the paint
  • Elite athlete; gets off the floor very well and plays above the rim in transition; great two-foot leaper 
  • Moves well without the basketball; always locked, loaded and ready to fire 

Weaknesses:

  • Skinny frame; will need to add strength; not a physical player by any means
  • Tends to play quiet in big time situations 
  • Is out of control when trying to score in the paint; lack of upper body strength causes him to get bumped out of place easily; does not absorb contact very well; Not a great fisher at the rim

Tramon Mark / 6’4″ / SG /  Dickinson  Level: High Major

Strengths:

  • Long and lanky guard who is at his best when slashing to the basket; De’Aaron fox body mold
  • Great ball handler; has a quick and tight handle
  • Solid three-level scorer who can make open opportunities from long distance
  • Nice athleticism; looks good scoring under or above the rim

Weaknesses:

  • Needs to add strength; really skinny frame
  • A two-guard that likes to play with ball in his hands; not the best decision maker
