Video: Class of 2023 forward Arrinten Page summer highlights
In late July, Adam Finkelstein of 247Sports named Page one of the five best big men on the Nike EYBL circuit:
Page was held out of Peach Jam, where TSF was playing in the PIT division, but had already established himself as one of the most intriguing long-term talents up front in the EYBL. When everything is clicking, and he’s fully engaged in the game, his tools and impact can jump right out at you. There are, however, other moments when he is less active and involved with the game. In terms of his raw tools though, there is a lot to like. He has a big and strong frame that is going to continue to fill-out and get stronger. He runs the floor well, is often able to get ahead of the ball in transition, and is very coordinated in terms of his ability to finish on the move without breaking his stride. He has soft hands, a good left, and equally soft natural touch. He can be a lob threat and big roller to the rim, but also shows glimpses of long-term floor-spacing and passing potential to develop. He becomes turnover prone and inefficient when trying too hard to prove his face-up game, and doesn’t always go through contact as easily as he should given his body type, but still projects as a versatile big who should be both a pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop threat. Defensively, he has tools to protect the rim, but didn’t assert himself in that area as consistently as expected this season, and similarly rebounds in spurts right now. Page has demonstrated an accelerated rate of improvement over the course of the last year, and is young for his class, two variables that suggest his best basketball could still be far in front of him.
We’ve compiled more than two minutes of video of Page’s play from the EYBL session in Kansas City in early July, which is available below:
