  • Final Evaluation Skylar Jones, of Chicago (IL) St. Benedict Preparatory School, is a 5'11 120lb 2023 prospect from our Fall 2018 CHI camp. College coaches on camp staff identified Skylar as having division 1 potential. Skylar 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 very good size for position when used properly remains advantageous on both sides of the ball. The very talented passer does a fantastic job distributing and seeing the floor. The player is always anticipating when and where teammates will be open, a highly coveted trait in the team sport. 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. Skylar does an excellent job of shooting the basketball with rhythm and possesses high-level knowledge between good/bad shots. 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 a very reliable asset for the prospect. 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 coaches at the next level will love. The player showed excellence on the defensive side of the ball and exemplified individual and team defensive concepts that we highlighted at camp. Skylar has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 1; 2; 3. AAU Team: MacIrvine Fire.
