When young players are being evaluated there are some that just pop or jump out at you, they just look, different. That is what you get with David Katoa David Katoa 6'4" | CG RSL Academy | 2024 State UT who is all of those things previously mentioned and more. The 6’3 CG and native of Layton, Utah who suits up for RSL Academy has major game. 

Katoa has a humble demeanor about his game but he is up for any challenge and any challenger. 

Defensively he is able to keep defenders in front of him with his lateral movement and he can also catch someone up the line and cut them off. Davis is a great weakside defender that can come over and not only rebound he can also contest at the rim defensively. 

Offensively Katoa really gets to his spots when he wants but he is a team player that allows the game to come to him. He really extends the floor with his range and he is especially dangerous in the corners and the open floor. With David being so active he gets a lot of deflections and even on rebounds he really pushes the ball with his head up looking for opportunities.
