Devonte Peterson






High School:
Kecoughtan High School (Hampton VA)


Offered by Coastal Carolina


Basketball Achievement:
2015: Earned All Monitor-Merrimac Conference honors.


HS Coach Evaluation:
Devonte is a late bloomer with unlimited potential. A true 6’7 stretch forward that can play and defend all five positions on the floor, gives us a creative and reliable option in our system. Peterson has a will and a knack for getting to the ball. He has an ever increasing basketball IQ that is going to get better as he grows. He is so ready and poise for a breakout year. He holds an offer from Costal Carolina and my phone has been buzzing all summer about his services on the next level. He is truly a diamond in the ruff but we have been polishing him up all summer and he is ready to shine.


Coach Frank says:
Devonte Peterson’s length and quickness stands out as the 6’7 wing navigates the court with the mobility and explosiveness of a guard and the obvious length and imposing paint presence of a big. Not yet 17 years old the California native is only beginning his third year of organized basketball! He has a respectable handle and uses his dribble wisely, does a great job moving without the basketball and has very good footwork on the catch and shoot. He has a better than average jumper from beyond the arc and has demonstrated the ability to score from deep and in the paint. While obviously more comfortable and effective as a face up big or a stretch four, in fact a dangerous scoring threat in that role, Devonte has shown some back to the basket effectiveness. While still developing with the mid range jumper off the dribble, Devonte can get to the basket with the dribble and score at a high percentage when attacking off the bounce. Most impressive is Devonte’s ability to defend the perimeter. He has excellent mobility and has proven effective defending either wing or post position. Devonte has shown great improvement in all areas over the summer and is a player that is capable of carrying a team for long stretches. He does not have to do that on a talented Kecoughtan team but Peterson is certainly a matchup that will cause headaches for opposing coaches. Look for a big season from Devonte Peterson!
