In the world of investing attention to detail is a very important component to becoming successful. That same principle apply’s to covering high school basketball prospects.
Tracking the growth of player’s are extremely important in this era of high school basketball. I will refrain myself from using the language of “Under The Radar” player.
They’re or three stages of basketball growth: 1) Real Growth, the rise of a player through constant development. 2) Excessive Growth, this type of growth is surrounded by hype and not attention to detail. 3) Speculative Growth, this type of growth is a decrease or a decline in the evolving of a player’s skill sets. In other words you are taking a risk!
As a content writer my job is to present authentic information on players from around the country. What makes this so unique these players are not household names! Let’s take a look at one particular player, who’s basketball stock is moving in the right direction.
2022 6’0 170 pound point guard Damion Byrd II of Las Vegas, Nevada. This young man brings a unique quality to his skill set. Byrd has a relentless work ethic! That many college coaches are looking for at the next level. In other words Byrd is extremely coachable!
Byrd is an efficient ball handler who has above average passing skills. He also has the ability to knock down the mid-range shot. Byrd is still growing as a floor general; but you can see as he continues to grow. His leadership skills will continue to evolve. There is no flash to Damion’s game it’s about solid productivity.
When you survey the landscape of grassroots & high school basketball in Las Vegas. Damion has to rank among the top point guards in his class.
Overall, from a development standpoint there has not been any fall off in Byrd’s progress. College coaches should put Mr. Byrd‘s name in their Rolodex.
Player projection: D2, D3, NAIA, and Juco level. Mr. Byrd has a desire to attend a HBCU School.
