USA Basketball U16 Training Camp Scouting Reports: Big Men June 4, 2015 Kaleb Wesson posted some of the most impressive measurements of anyone in the camp, with his 7-2 wingspan and 9-1 ½ standing reach. That's pretty impressive considering he's only 15-years old. He measured 6-8 without shoes, and 290 pounds, which is very much on the high side for someone that age, and something that affects him constantly on both ends of the floor.
Wesson has excellent footwork inside the post, helping him executing some very pretty spin and pivot moves throughout the week. He has huge hands, and very soft touch, which gives him great potential as a back to the basket scorer considering his strength and length. He's very much a below the rim player at the moment, showing very little explosiveness, and struggles badly on defense due to his poor lateral quickness and inability to get off the ground to protect the basket. Wesson was one of the lesser known prospects attended to this camp, and for good reason, but if he continues to work on his body and skill-level, this certainly won't be the last we hear of him.
We talked to him about as development as a basketball player and much more in the following interview:
