Introducing the Prep Hoops Texas Report

One of our goals at Prep Hoops Texas is to provide the most accurate and credible information to college coaches about the most talented kids in the Lone Star State. Our media source covers kids across the state who can play at all levels. A way we will assist coaches who subscribe to our site is by providing scouting reports on multiple athletes in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 classes. We want to cover as many 2020 kids as possible first because those will be the kids coaches will be mainly evaluating come next summer. Also, towards the end of the high school season, we will add unsigned seniors to our reports. The Prep Hoops Texas Report will provide a detailed, bullet-pointed scouting report on multiple kids across the state. Be on the lookout for each one because there is a chance you might miss a kid that could fill a need. This article focuses on two high major small forwards who are currently are nationally ranked in Caleb Lohner and Micah Peavy.

 

Caleb Lohner / 6’7″ / SF / Flower Mound /  Level: High Major

Strengths: 

  • Very strong wing that can stroke it from deep; has a college ready body
  • Has deep range on his jumper; great shooter when his feet are set
  • Scores very well off the triple threat; will attack off the wing and finish with a powerful dunk in the half-court set
  • Elite prospect who is physical; will compete

Weaknesses:

  • At times can lack aggression; inconsistent
  • Body language is not always there; seems disinterested at times 
  • Does not post up smaller defenders; needs to use his size to his advantage and develop a post game

Micah Peavy / 6’7″ / SF / Duncanville /  Level: High Major

Strengths: 

  • Smooth slashing wing with elite athleticism that seems effortless to him; athleticism always stands out
  • He has a quick first step off the wing; gets to the rim and truly elevates
  • Always runs the proper lane in transition; gets out on the break and opens eyes
  • Comfortable getting to his spots in the mid-range; developing ball-handler

Weaknesses:

  • Scores a lot of his points inside the arc; not a good three-point shooter; will hit the long ball if he heats up in the mid-range 
  • Makes you wonder if he knows how athletically gifted he is; nonchalant approach on the court
  • Developing ball handler; Needs to be stronger with the ball in the open floor
