Speed, slick driving and expert playmaking have become hallmarks. Of the short point guards in the Class of 2014, Jackson-Cartwright may be the best at utilizing his left (off) hand. He's a very effective dribbler in either direction and also is a twisting, surprising finisher in traffic, but his play making may be his most alluring hoops quality. Jackson-Cartwright is a very talented passer.
Offered: Arizona, Kansas, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kansas State
"He’s a 6’3 combo guard," said Hutchinson assistant Jay Cyriak. "When he first came here he was playing off the ball, but out of necessity we shifted him to point and he proved he could play that as well. He has a knock for scoring and is very long. As a freshman he was our leading scorer, and also was first in steals and second in blocks. He can score it as well as anybody I have seen, and was the Newcomer of the Year in the league and was the only freshman to make first team All-American. He is just a scorer who plays excellent defense and gets things done."
With broad shoulders and the frame to carry all that muscle without sacrificing any flexibility, Johnson is among the most powerful wings in the country. He also has become very skilled. He's a solid wing handler and a particularly gifted passer who loves to wear down defenses over time. After delivering a series of body blows on drives that result in buckets and fouls, he'll burrow forward again only to slyly find a teammate for a bucket.
At 6-8, 225 pounds, the word you'll most frequently see attached to Victor is "sturdy." That description doesn't speak only to his height and weight; he's very well-proportioned and plays the kind of game that underlines a team's collective effort. He has become a skilled face-up scorer as well. His jump shot now finds the net from 12-15 feet, and he handles well enough (especially going right) to beat many opposing big men off the dribble.
Oliver runs the floor very well, and physically, he’s certainly got the tools. He’s a legitimate 210 pounds with a broad, well-muscled frame and good length. What really stuck out were Oliver’s handles
"He's a legit 7-footer with a great frame and really long arms," Jonathan Givony told Scout.com. "He's as skilled a big man as you'll find. He can score with either hand in the post, is an excellent passer, and can step outside and shoot from the perimeter as well."
