Esa Ahmad

16 Aug

Name: Esa Ahmad

Height: 6’6
Weight: 185

Position: Power Forward

School: Shaker Heights
Hometown: Cleveland, OH

AAU: All-Ohio Red
Class: 2015

Evaluation: Excellent combo forward with a well-developed and versatile offensive game. Ahmad has near a complete skill-set on the offensive end as he can play in the post, shoot the ball, take it from the high post off the dribble and runs the floor well. Tough competitor who is not afraid to get physical as a shotblocker or rebounder. While Ahmad isn’t a great athlete, he shows signs of being explosive around the rim and has a nice wide base with his shoulders where he should be able to get stronger. Besides being one of the more skilled players in his class he also shows great potential as a kid who should just get better and better.

Bottom Line: Ahmad is one of the clear-cut top two prospects in the 2015 class in Ohio regardless of position. If he continues to grow into the power forward spot, or improves his foot-speed to the point where he can consistently guard small forwards, then he’ll likely be a high-major recruit for colleges.
