Ryan Claflin is a lot of things. He's a paint force, a source of interior talent that provides no area for defenders to have an edge physically or skill-wise.

He’s a jump shooter, and positionless because of it.

He’s an athlete, a 6’6” catchers mitt robbing passing lanes and a volatile dunk threat when he has his bearings under the hoop.

The senior out of Southern Door is an elastic prospect, versatile with skills and consistent as a player. Green Bay, Hillsdale, Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan have bought into that playstyle, offering him scholarships prior to his senior season.

“I think that I’m a pretty versatile player. I’m not outstanding at one thing but I do everything well. I can defend multiple positions, shoot the three, go to the rim and handle the ball,” Claflin said.

I could pound my chest and drill you on his versatile skillset, but stats represent that smooth slate of abilities in a better light. As a junior last season, he was an overly-talented second-fiddle to Kyle Daoust, Southern Door's leading scorer. Claflin mustered up 15.5 points a night, weaving in 5.5 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.7 steals into a brimming stat sheet.
