Michael looks to be somewhat of a late bloomer in terms of both physical development and skills, playing an easy smooth style with deceptive athleticism. He is a wing type player who plays well off the ball, and presently is more of a small forward than shooting guard. Although he has the type of body that often grows and matures at an older age, his current lack of true small forward size presents an obstacle as a potential Division I college basketball player.
- Basketball Physique – Slender build with long arms and legs. Plays a smooth, fluid, style of game.
- Extremely Team Oriented – Very unselfish and plays within team concepts.
- Active Without The Ball – Runs the floor hard in transition and cuts off the ball in the half court.
- Not Afraid To Mix-It-Up – Slender but will do the dirty work.
- Plays With Energy & Enthusiasm – Hustles, encourages, and positive with teammates.
- Attacks Off The Dribble – Capable of taking the ball the length of the floor, good first step, and gets to the basket.
- In Between Game – Also, capable of shooting the pull-up shot with a nice medium range touch.
- Rebounding – Possesses excellent rebounding instincts, especially on the offensive glass.
- Shooting Form & Release – Especially evident at the free throw line.
- Active Hands & Anticipates Defensively – Disruptive and does a nice job getting in passing lanes off the ball.
- Tentative – Has a tendency to stand around too much and not be assertive enough.
- Consistency – Shows flashes of outstanding play and then disappears for stretches.
- Strength – Although not afraid to use his body, does get moved around.
- Plays Mainly On Instincts – Not necessarily a bad thing, but high school team runs little set offense and lacking basketball IQ.
- Ball Handling – Average dribbler, passer, and decision-maker.
- Shooting Range – Looks to have good shooting fundamentals, but currently limited from outside 15’.
- Man-To-Man Defense – Susceptible to ball fakes and allowing penetration.
SKILL DEVELOPMENT RECOMMENDATIONS:
- Improved Guard Play – Including decision-making, ball handling, and ability to make others better.
- Handling In P/R’s – Look to be a threat both as a scorer and facilitator handling in pick & rolls.
- Become More A Catch & Shoot Threat With Range– Both off screens and spotting-up.
- Increase Mental Aspect – Improve execution and understanding of the game on both ends.
- Strengthen Individual Defense – Look to increase lateral quickness and the ability to contain.
Michael’s in between size, average athleticism, and under-developed guard skills limits his potential as a Division I college basketball player. Despite this, the fact he is a very young class of 2016 prospect with a free-flowing style does make him intriguing. I do see much room for improvement and a good upside. Further developing his skills and game at the prep school or junior college level would increase his chances of playing at the Division I level in the future. Otherwise, concentrating on and establishing a career at a lower level Division II/III or NAIA school would be his best option.

My name is Michael Jordan. I am a student athlete at North County High School. I play as number 6 on the football team and number 4 on the basketball team. I've been playing varsity football for only a year. I've been playing varsity basketball for three years, my freshman, sophomore, and junior years. I am 6 foot 3 inches tall, and weight 165 pounds. My best contribution to my team in football is not to be afraid of the spotlight. When it's a close game, I want the ball in my hands so I can make plays. In basketball, my best contribution is to know and accepting my role on the team as a leader. If I'm having an off scoring night, I often contributed to my team by playing defense and rebounding the basketball in crucial situations. During my junior year for basketball, I averaged 12.7 points a game, seven and a half rebounds, two steals, and one block. For football I had 18 catches for 343 yards and five touchdowns.
My transcript GPA is 2.5 unweighted at the end of this year, but I plan to have this higher at the end of my senior year and upon graduation. I want to play sports in college, but I want to use it as a way for me to get a degree. If I am given the chance to play for your team, it would be a privilege.
