AAU Coach Evaluation:
Strong, athletic crafty guard who attacks the basket hard and can finish with either hand; good mid-range shot but can also shoot the trey ball. Andre is also an excellent defender who often drew the assignment of the opponent’s best player. Andre has an above average skill set for his age and has a tremendously high ceiling. – Coach James Pope, Academy Prep Basketball

Coach Frank says:
Andre Bottoms has good size and strength for a guard his age and is very athletic. Right now he overwhelms opponents because of his physical talents but Andre participated with the Western Branch High School varsity team during the summer and proved he could play and contribute on that level as well. He’s got great poise, court presence and maturity and demonstrated very impressive leadership qualities even when playing on the varsity team. He communicates which is a skill many varsity players don’t avail themselves to, he dribbles with purpose and can get to the basket and finish with contact. Andre is a crafty ball handler and can get his shot as well as draw help defenders to create opportunities for teammates. He has an excellent mid range jumper and is working to add consistency and range but showed good consistency to 15-18 feet. Defensively he is quick and active, guards multiple positions and is a lock down defender, he plays strong and quick. Andre Bottoms is one of the most impressive players I saw this summer in the 2020 class!
