  • Final Evaluation Tyrek Turner, of TALLASSEE (AL) Tallassee HS, is a 6'4 185lb 2020 prospect from our Fall 2018 ATL camp. College coaches on camp staff identified Tyrek as having division 1 potential. Tyrek has a disruptive 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 talented passer, distributes the ball well seeing the floor and anticipating when and where teammates will be open creating easy buckets. In terms of ball handling, the prospect showed a strong handle and has the potential to be a primary ball handler with daily work. Basketball IQ was one of the player's greatest strengths routinely making the right play at the right time. There was a great emphasis on making the right play, which will be a big advantage in recruiting and separating from others. A big part of IQ is shot selection. Tyrek does a great job of understanding when there is enough time and space to shoot the ball and will continue to develop this knowledge 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 reliable asset for the prospect. The prospect displayed sound shooting mechanics that will continue to develop with form shooting and made game speed repetitions We recommend making at least 750 game speed shots a day off the screen(curl/fades), off the bounce, spot shooting, etc. The talent impressed finishing around the rim through contact and in traffic. With continued work finishing through traffic with either hand, adding even more finishing moves, the player will continue to be a grave threat around the basket. The talented player has very good athletic ability for size and age. ScoutsFocus would like to see continued development in speed/agility and vertical development. Jump rope drills are great full body conditioning drill we highly recommend if not ready for a rigorous weight-training program. 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 has a good motor (highly coveted skill by college coaches) and we would like to see them continue to make every possession an major priority and from what we saw, the player showed physical and mental toughness throughout camp. The player showed a great understanding and effort on the defensive side of the ball and should continue to focus on individual and team defensive concepts emphasized at camp. Tyrek has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 2; 3; 4. AAU Team: Alabama Fusion.
