Te’Shaun Knightnor 6’6 195 2020 Woodside High School, Newport News VA

Te’Shaun is one the most athletic players in the 757 and is incredibly versatile.  He is a double figure
scorer and rebounder; he defends multiple positions, scores in a variety of ways and is very good in
transition as a finisher and a passer.  He is very adept at moving off the ball and finding spots to receive a
pass and explode for a finish.  He has great instincts! He doesn't miss around the rim showing great touch
and the ability to endure contact and finish.  He runs the floor like a deer, agile and fluid. Te’Shaun
doesn’t possess a ton of shot creating moves off the dribble but his awareness as a mover and passer puts
him in good situations and his explosiveness around the rim gets him plenty of scoring opportunities off
stick backs, catch and shoots, short drives to the rim and as a lob target.  Ta’Shaun can hit the 15 footer at
a good rate and can get to the rim with short drives using his long strides and strong frame but also has
enough shiftiness with sidesteps to score around defenders.  He is more likely to finish over defenders
often with rim rocking dunks.  He is terrific on the offensive glass reading the ball off the rim and getting
tip dunks. Te’Shaun is extremely active defensively and has stretches of dominance inside thanks to his
superb physical tools and effort.  He has excellent lateral quickness and recovery speed, but is also very
strong and physical.  Capable of defending multiple positions either on the perimeter or battling inside.
He is very good at getting in the passing lanes and igniting fast breaks.  Also an excellent shot blocker
thanks to his length, timing and explosiveness.  Te’Shaun is a very good rebounder on both ends of the
floor again using his physical tools, a great motor and a nose for the basketball.  He can play at the next
level and the development of his shot creating skills with the dribble will determine just what level, but he
certainly has potential as an effective and productive power forward.
