Posted On: 10/30/18 10:00 AM

Caleb Golden / 6’3″ / SG / Cedar Ridge (Round Rock, TX) /  Level: Low-Mid Major

Strengths:

  • Athletic two-guard with bounce; finishes above the rim in transition; great open court lob target 
  • Can stroke the three off the catch; shoots it well from deep
  • Attacks the rim off the wing; plays above the rim each time he gets the chance; aggressive slasher and solid scorer

Weaknesses:

  • Body needs to continue to add strength
  • Is not strong with the ball under pressure

Baylor Hebb / 6’1″ / SG / Colleyville Heritage /  Level: Division II-Low Major

Strengths:

  • One of the best scorers in the state; efficient shooter from beyond the arc 
  • Deadeye shooter; his scoring ability creates avenues for him to create for others
  • Effortless shot creator with very deep range; a threat to go for 30 plus, especially when he heats up from the outside; finishes crafty under the rim 
  • Will be on a program’s all-time scorer list if it is the right fit

Weaknesses:

  • Size for position; is strictly a shooting guard who is capable of taking on secondary ball handling duties 
  • Skinny prospect with a thin under developed frame; looks very young on the basketball court; needs to add strength; not physical 
  • Is easily knocked off balance when absorbing contact 
  • Takes angles defensively, but still needs to improve guarding on the ball

Jake Milkereit / 6’4″ / SG / Bishop Lynch (Dallas, TX) /  Level: Low-Mid Major

Strengths:

  • A knock down spot up shooter; true kick out threat 
  • Gets off the floor really well in transition 
  • Does a great job of moving without the ball to find the best opportunities to catch and shoot in the half court setting
  • Reminds me of a poor man’s Matthew McQuaid 

Weaknesses:

  • Needs to improve ball handling skills 
  • Lacks an in-between game; needs to look to attack the basket more in the half court set
