    Precious Achiuwa, SF, New Heights – One of the highlight performances of the day was Achiuwa’s. Not only was he good, but he was really good when it mattered the most. In the middle of a big time back and forth game, it was Achiuwa who hit the biggest shot. Achiuwa nailed a pull up three at the buzzer to win it, and that was the capper of an excellent game. He showed elite athleticism on several occasions and improved skill as well. With his size and athleticism, he is definitely one of the premier prospects in the country.

    There is no debating the raw talent and abilities with However, the dilemma surrounding the five-star is around his decision making as he sometimes tries to be a ballhandling wing rather than a hard playing, energy giving small ball power forward. He was the latter on Wednesday night and boy, was Achiuwa impressive. The Rudy Gay comparisons haven’t stopped and his athleticism, length and finishing skills aren’t far off where Achiuwa was the star of the night, backing up his claim as a five star prospect. Watch for UConn here as the Huskies have come on of late.

    Precious Achiuwa, SF, 2019

    Achiuwa has been the talk of the camp and arguably the top performer here. The uber athletic forward has consistently put up big scoring and rebounding numbers. Currently he is tied for number two in scoring, number three in rebounding and tied for number 12 in steals. There have been questions swirling during the spring about Achiuwa being over valued because of a lacking skill level, but the skill level has been strong in Charlottesville. Recruiting: Connecticut, Kansas, St. John's, Syracuse and others (JM)
