The Desoto Men’s basketball team had a good run this year, the scrappy team from Dallas ended up losing to an elite team in the state tournament, ruining their run earlier this year than expected. This team had players who possessed great energy with a real chance to succeed at the next level. This is my detailed scouting report on the wings and forwards from Desoto.

Cole Franklin- 2022 Wing
Cole is a long wing with tremendous potential with his frame and age. He shows great skills at finishing underneath the rim, even while driving with the basketball. His long arms make it easy to rise above defenders for soft runners and strong finishes in the paint. He shrugs off contact while driving and finishing in the lane, even against bigger seniors. He showed a good ability to get out to shooters and actively contesting shots. He is incredibly athletic and seems to rise up with ease to finish over stronger and older defenders. There was a particular play I watched where he got stripped as he rose with the basketball and caught it, readjusted, and finished all before coming down.
