Mikey Thompson

24 Aug

Name: Mikey Thompson

Height: 6’4
Weight: 190

Position: Small Forward

School: Aiken
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH

AAU: Cincinnati Knights 17u
Class: 2013

Evaluation: Slashing lefty with a great court vision and although he needs to learn to play under control he can really make some plays. Solid athlete with a big and strong build that can get off the floor. Unconventional release on his jumper but uses a one handed release with great rotation and is consistent from behind the arc. Understanding what a good shot it and when to pick his spots is key to his future. Versatile player who can go inside and post up and rebound or step out and handle the ball (where he has really improved) Mikey is one to keep an eye on over the next year.

Bottom Line: Raw talent that might be this class’ hidden gem if he can tie all his abilities together consistently. Mikey can shoot it, pass it, handle it, and is a pure scorer with great confidence and solid athleticism. When the whole package is in sync he is a heck of a player, another guy that just needs to add consistency to see his recruitment skyrocket.
