Posted On: 10/29/18 1:25 AM

Richard Amaefule / 6’8″ / PF / Woodrow Wilson (Dallas, TX) /  Level: High Major

Strengths:

  • Native of England; Athletic rim protector who swats shots and is active on the boards 
  • Has tools; will show flashes of what he can be from time-to-time 
  • Capable of handling the ball in the open floor; isn’t confident in that ability yet 
  • Developing mid-range game; transition scorer; runs the floor extremely well

Weaknesses:

  • Still very raw offensively; Day-by-day putting it all together
  • Needs to finish better in the paint and around the basket through contact

Nate Martin / 6’7″ / PF / Cypress Creek /  Level: Mid-High Major Minus

Strengths:

  • Tough face-up blue-collar forward who does not mind getting physical; will compete on both ends for loose balls and rebounds 
  • Has a soft touch in the paint; can stroke it out to 22 feet; hits short jumpers inside the arc
  • Brock Cunningham 2.0 with a little bit more athleticism and without the scorers mentality 

Weaknesses:

  • Durability; gets hurt or injured frequently
  • Defensive ability on the low post; lacks lateral quickness guarding other hybrid four-men outside the paint

Jaquan Scott / 6’8″ / PF / Universal Academy (DeSoto, TX) /  Level: High Major

Strengths:

  • Has the upside to be a very skilled inside and out big man; has pretty-looking jumpshot from the outside 
  • Long forward who rebounds at a high level 
  • Runs the floor really well; is fun to watch in transition
  • Handles the ball in the open floor; finishes strong above the rim
  • Lean athlete with a long frame; has very long arms

Weaknesses:

  • Inconsistent motor; consistent nonchalant attitude on the court 
  • Settles for way too many contested outside jumpers; does not post up enough inside
