  • 07/01/2016 7:55 am in

Class of 2017 South Kent School (Conn.) and Expressions Elite guard Tremont Waters is one of the top point guards in the country. The Indiana target averaged 12.7 points, 4.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game this spring on the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) circuit.

With the help of Krossover, we recently broke down some film of Waters to provide Indiana fans with a feel for his game and style of play. Waters shot over 38 percent on 3-point attempts in EYBL play.

    Good speed. Nice looking jumper. Seems to be a smart pass-first point guard. He’s obviously only a PG not a combo guard. My worry is that because of his size he’ll struggle defensively…now with that said its stupid to count him out without seeing him play (a full game). Yogi, Ulis, and Felder were all elite point guards and solid defensively and they were all short….Still if we’re going to get a small PG lets make sure he’s the best darn ball distributor in the class.

    I’m not seeing it Bill, this recruitment just doesn’t make sense to me, unless it’s a play to get more interest from his AAU teammate Richards? Not saying the kid can’t go somewhere and ball for four years, BUT….. Lol. We could have as many as three senior guards next year, plus two sophomores who I think will all be more fit to contribute that season. Plus another incoming freshmen, We not only could, but should tighten our net here.

    Agreed. When I first saw his highlights I thought “nah lets recruit a bigger more physical guard,” but then I thought “well maybe I’m just writing him off because he’s small.” I mean Duke (ughh) has recruited him pretty hard so he’s obviously a good distributor…but I’d rather have a bigger guard.

    I think Duke has a little more freedom to play around with this class. Especially with the rate they’re turning kids pro currently. Duke could very well have its entire starting five selected in the first round next year, and at least three of them will probably be in the lottery.

    Im not a big guard elitist or whatever, but at his size you do need something that sets ya apart. He has fun highlights but how does he doing passing into the post in the half court? He’s fast, but doesn’t seem Yogi fast, especially on the jumper, and certainly has a long way to go to get anywhere near his physique.
