Maker has switched teams since last year (Orangveille Prep to A.I Prep), but will be under the same Athlete Institute umbrella.
At this point, the world knows about Maker’s physical gifts, unique make up and and size to skill ratio, however the 2015-2016 season will provide an opportunity for the big fella to LEAD a team.
With the absence of Jamal Murray, Maker should be the undoubted leader of this team, holding the most experience under his belt. The 7’1 specimen possesses both the passion, intangibles and talent to demand respect from his teammates to push them forward and make them better.
It will be interesting to track this phase of his development throughout the upcoming year.
We have become very familiar with Edmonton, Alberta’s Aher Uguak over the years, after evaluating him with the provincial team, high school team (Harry Ainlay) and recently at the Alberta NPH Showcase where the 6’6 wing captured MVP honours.
Uguak is currently in 2016, but could ultimately reclassify to 2017 if he ends up making a move to seek higher level competition outside of Alberta. This Western Canada talent is very unique and physically impressive…what’s more is that he is a great kid with a desire to learn and grow.
Stay tuned for more on this Canadian hidden gem.
We have told you time and time again, Godwin Boahen is a straight G, and what we mean is that he has constantly produced in every environment against the best competition his entire career.
This past summer, he made a statement in Atlanta at the Under Armour championships where he impressed a gym fuil of 100+ D1 coaches. Boahen is a relentless worker, that is constantly elevating his game by addressing his weaknesses; he will maximize his potential wherever he ends up.
