Justin Saunders

11 Sep

Name: Justin Saunders

Height: 6’5
Weight: 205

Position: Forward

School: Bishop Brossart
Hometown: Alexandria, KY

AAU: Crons (KY)
Class: 2013

Evaluation: Saunders had a breakout AAU season this summer and has elevated his status in a major way among Northern Kentucky players. At 6-foot-5, Saunders is a big man for his high school team but he’s a face up guy with good skill who plays a much more versatile role in AAU. He has a good shot all the way out to 3-point range,  and while his release needs to get quicker, he will burn you if you don’t guard him on the perimeter. He also possesses a good handle and can get to the rim off the bounce with good strength and size to finish once in the lane. He works hard on defense and is very well coached in both school ball in AAU so he has a good grasp on how to guard away from the ball.

Bottom Line: Saunders continues to improve at a rapid pace and is really proving his worth as a versatile guy with size who can play multiple positions. He needs to improve his quickness to be able to guard the three and possibly even the two in college.
