Makur Maker, Australia (via Sudan), Center, Class of 2019, Uncommitted Strengths
-Developed physical profile for his age - 6'11 with long arms, a strong base and developed upper body.
-Mobile for his size. Can get up and down in transition. Solid agility diving to the rim.
-High motor. Really competitive on the glass. Uses his body to carve out space and his reach to keep plays alive.
-Compete level and tools help him protect the rim at the youth level.
-Can catch lobs in space thanks to his length
-Shooting stroke is developable. Sound mechanics, gets good rotation, will occasionally stretch it to three although nothing consistent.Weaknesses-Despite his age he looks a little bit maxed out physically.
-More mobile than explosive. Needs to be on the move to finish above the rim. Average standstill leaper. Limits him a little bit as a finisher, rim protector and rebounder at the highest levels.
-Overall skill level and feel are still developing, although he shows flashes. Tries to push himself in transition, will force passes that aren't there. Shows potential as a shooter but is still inconsistent.
-Not all that savvy as a finisher around the rim. Relies more on tools at this stage. Right-hand dominant.
-Can improve his ability to sit down and defend the perimeter.Outlook The cousin of Thon Maker and Matur Maker, Makur Maker won co-MVP honors thanks to his compete level, physical maturity and flashes of skill. He has the length, reach, and frame of a NBA prospect center already, even if he may be closer to his physical peak than most players his age. He's without a doubt a player worth tracking, as his skill development will determine his long-term upside as an NBA prospect.
