  • Final Evaluation Jack Kostel, of Dacula (GA) Mill Creek HS, is a 6'2 165lb 2020 prospect from our Fall 2018 ATL camp. College coaches on camp staff identified Jack as having division 1 potential. Jack has a great wingspan that gives the player the potential to be a lock down defender and can be even more effective with active hands/feet. Additionally, the prospect appears to have great positional size when used properly remains very advantageous on both sides of the ball. The extremely talented passer does a fantastic job distributing and seeing the floor with tremendous vision. The player is always anticipating where and when teammates will be open making it a joy for others to play with such a gifted passer. In terms of ball handling, it was one of the strongest aspects of the player's game. The player makes great use of change of speed and change of direction. In terms of basketball IQ the player was one of the smartest players we saw at camp and all Fall. The right play was almost always made, and that will be a big advantage in recruiting as this prospect showed they could be trusted on the court at all times being an extension of the coach. A big part of IQ is shot selection. Jack almost always shoots the ball with great space and in-rhythm. This advantage will continue to develop by watching how this is done at various college levels. Making the extra pass and taking only open in-rhythm shots proved to be an extremely reliable asset for the prospect and will be a joy for college to coach this understanding and skill. The prospect showed they were an extremely reliable shooter throughout camp. Shooting will continue to develop with form shooting and made game speed repetitions. We recommend making at least 500 game speed shots a day off the screen(curl/fades), off the bounce, spot shooting, etc. The talent did a tremendous job of finishing around the rim through various moves. The prospect showed great ability with both hands and has the potential to finish on any defense. The talented player is an exceptional athlete proving to be an advantage on both ends of the floor having athleticism that is in the upper quartile of competitors. The prospect is very strong for their age. The college game is an entirely different beast so continued strength development is crucial to prepare going against 23-24 year-olds. Combined with the player's solid frame that should to continue to build year around, the player will be physically ready to play at the next level. The talent had an impressive motor (highly coveted skill by college coaches) that we believe will translate well at the next level. College coaches will be impressed watching the talented prospects motor and from what we saw, the player had a physical and mental toughness that will be coveted at the next level. The player showed excellence on the defensive side of the ball and exemplified individual and team defensive concepts that we highlighted at camp. Jack has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 1. AAU Team: 17U Atlanta Timberwolves.
