Getting an updated view of 2025 6’8 Kareem Stagg at the NBPA Top 100, he reminded us at Phenom Hoops why he is one that schools should be looking at more and making a priority. Stagg is an interesting prospect with his blend of size, skillset, and physicality. His ability to impact and bring value at an array of levels makes him very intriguing. He moves well, is comfortable inside and out, can embrace being physical around the basket and through defenders, is quick enough to get around bigger defenders but also bully his way against smaller opponents, and with his comfort level from the perimeter, Stagg can take advantage of several opportunities. And you add that to his ability to be a strong rebounder, one that can attack the glass and push, his ability to be a force at the rim, and impact on the defensive end, Stagg clearly produces and should be a high priority for so many college programs.

What Has Been Said:

“Watching Stagg over the years, there is just something about his game that I really enjoy and what he provides on the court. At 6’8 and with his build, Stagg continues to impress with his ability to impact the game in so many ways, operate and move well at his size, and his comfort from all levels on the court. Scoring in the paint, finishing at the rim in transition, playing off the ball to knock down shots, and how he battles on the glass; Stagg is simply one that brings a lot of value to the table.”

“Stagg’s blend of physicality, strength, and size certainly should grab your attention. He is one that finishes strong at the rim and does so consistently, but also brings a strong presence defensively as well. Really liked the flashes he showed with his footwork, his ability to operate around the paint and put on the deck, his ability to bully through defenders and finish strong, but also make a presence in a variety of other ways on both sides of the court.”
