Nothing like spending a Sunday in a gym looking at the amazing talent of the Metro Detroit Area. Let’s evaluate some of this talent I saw yesterday Part 1:

Mak MancielMakManciel6'3" | CGSterling Heights Stevenson | 2021StateMI (2021, CG, Sterling Heights Stevenson)

Shooting Strength: His mechanics is pretty good. Nice arc on his shot. He has both 2 point and 3 point range. He can both catch and shoot and create off the dribble. He will attack the basket with either hand. He will follow his shot.

Dribbling Strength: He is very adept at going both ways with his dribble. He handles pressure well. He was good at splitting the double team and also passing over it. Dribble penetration is good and he is a decent finisher.

Passing Strength: Despite being the go to guy he has the court vision and court sense to find the open man. Can be turnover prone at times especially with a big lead.

Defensive Strength: Decent on ball defense. He is good at anticipation and finding his man in transition. He plays well within the team’s defensive concept.

Manciel is an excellent player who is going to be an excellent college player. He has all the tools.
