Point Guard | Shooting Guard
Michael is a very talented Class of 2022 basketball prospect that attends Camp Hill High School in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.
Michael is a hard-nosed point guard with great penetration ability, court vision and court awareness, combined with very crafty ball handling skills; Michael penetrates and has the ability to create the best shot for himself or a teammate almost every time. Michael knows how to use his body and shield off shot blockers to finish at the basket. He knows how to use the pick and roll and pin his defender on his hip, then finish with a very efficient floater over top of the shot blocker. He knows how to penetrate and dish off to his forwards or kick out accurate passes to his shooters. His head is always up and he’s always under control and playing at the speed he wants. He easily handles the pressure from defenders because of his skills set and very high basketball IQ.
However, Michael is also a very deadly shooter from the mid range and three point range. He shoots at a very high level when he is the recipient of someone else’s penetration: whether that is a catch and shoot three or a one dribble pull up jumper at the elbow. Michael gets steals or rebounds and uses his quickness and high level motor to push the ball up the court to get lay ups for himself or teammates.
For all of his smoothness on offense, Michael plays a very “hard-nosed style” style of defense. His hands are always in the passing lanes getting steals or being used to annoy ball handlers creating turnovers. He keeps the ball in front of him and uses his frame very effectively.
Michael is a focused leader with an excellent work ethic on and off the court! Michael is an amazing student! He speaks 4 languages (fluent in 3 of them) and carries a 4.5 GPA.
