2022 Cranbrook Kingswood (MI) point guard Brandon McCaskill has spent the majority of his quarantine working out, and becoming a better player.
McCaskill has some Division I coaches following him at the moment, but right now, it’s all about preparing for the opportunity to play in front of the coaches again so they can see his improvement.
“That I can lead a team, win games and do anything they need me to,” he said of what he wants to show coaches once he has the opportunity. “I can handle and pass the ball the ball in pressure, rebound, score when I need to, and play good defense.”
So far, the coaches that have reached out have spoken to him about his shooting ability, and how they respect his ability to get to the rim and finish.
“[Coaches] probably like my shooting…off the dribble, and catch and shoot,” he said. “And I’m somewhat creative around the rim.”
While his offense is one of his stronger suits currently, McCaskill has been working diligently on other facets of his game to become an even better all-around prospect.
In the past weeks, it’s been hard to keep a basketball out of his hands.
“My athleticism and my strength need to get better for me to play at the next level,” McCaskill explained. “I’ve been lifting and running hills to improve during quarantine, as well as working out in the driveway.”
