#87: Jordan Wildy 6’5 2020 Rock Hill High School Rock Hill SC

A stretch four that you can use in screen and roll where he is very good at knocking down open shots. He’s a nightmare for opponents that have a tradition post player. He forces you post player to come out and defend. This takes the defender away from the basket and open up the paint so that teammates can drive the lanes and make plays. He finishes well around the rim and can use either hand. At camp he did a good job of guarding stronger and taller players in the post because of his length. Jordan is good teammate he did a good job of processing information that his coach was giving him. You can tell that he enjoys playing. He’s very fundamentally sound on both sides the ball. This is what Coach Anthony Bellamy had to say about Jordan Wildy: “Extremely long and very versatile Jordan Wildy can create a lot of match-up problems. He altered shots and forced his opponents in to making turnovers. On offense, he forced bigger post players to guard him out to the three-point line. “ Wildy is a only a sophomore and has plenty time to improve on his skills. He needs to continue to work on moving without the ball and rebounding in and out of his position to become a better prospect for colleges. Which is something I know he has the potential to do and be great at it.
