Ryan Young Player Evaluation

Point/Shooting Guard

Graduation Year: 2015

Countryside High School/Clearwater, FL



-Lefty with a very nice three point shot.

-He knocked down a few three pointers from a pass and a couple off the dribble.

-He is a good ball handler, can get to the basket.

-Has good court vision and is a team player. Knows how to get his teammates the ball and always gives it up to the open man.

-He has good instincts and knows where to be on the court.

-He seems to enjoy playing on the ball defense and can bring a lot of energy defensively.


Areas for Improvement:

-Needs to work on decision making to minimize turnovers.   

-Gets to the basket nicely but needs to finish more consistently and develop a midrange game.  

-Would need to play with more consistent energy at the next level. Needs to be in attack mode more often.

-Stretches of high-energy, then fades away.



Ryan has the skills to play at the next level. He has a very nice three point shot and can benefit from being left-handed. He is a team player with good court awareness. I think Ryan would be most effective on a team that needs an outside shooter. He seems most comfortable playing the shooting guard position. If Ryan can continue to knock down the three as he has shown, he will be very valuable in stretching the court.


Ryan is not very tall, listed at 5’11, however, that should not be an issue at his position with his skill set. He has spurts where he shows high energy, then seems to fade away. Ryan would definitely stand out if he brought the high-energy intensity for the entire game. There are a lot of teams that need a sharp shooter and even though his percentage from three isn’t shocking, just looking at him you can tell he has a good stroke.  


If I were a coach at a smaller D2 school I would consider Ryan. However, being that he is already in his senior year, it would be best for him to focus on D3 or NAIA schools. He could also think about furthering his skills at a Junior College, which should give him even more options after.

> Coach/Recruiter My name is Ryan Young and I am very  interested in playing basketball in college. I am  5’11” inches tall, weigh 164 pounds and play  both Point and Shooting Guard positions.  I am a recent graduate of Countryside High School in Clearwater,  Florida.  I was the starting point guard for most of my senior year’s basketball season but on occasion came off the  bench as the sixth man to add that additional spark, energy  and defensive intensity my coach says I bring. I played  Varsity basketball since my junior year. During my junior year, I was awarded The Most  Improved Player of the Year and this past season was awarded the coach's "Iron Man" Award.  This season I scored  my career high 22 points and  averaged nearly 12 points,

> 3 assists, 2 steals and 2 rebounds per game and shot 40%  from the field and 78% from the free-throw line. This senior  year, I also proved myself to be a leader, both on and off  the court as evident by the coaches naming me team co-captain. I was one of the top on my team in minutes played  and also one of the top scorers. I was also  usually given the task of guarding the opposing team’s  best player.


> I maintained over a 2.4 GPA throughout my high school  career. I also scored a composite 62 on the ACT. My goal academically is to pursue a degree in Marine  Science. Currently I am working gaining some real world work experience. I plan on enrolling at St. Petersburg College for the winter semester.


> I would love to play basketball for your program and hope you  consider me as your next recruit. Please view my profile at  http://www.athletesforcollege.com/


> Hope to hear from you soon and have a great  season.
