Name: DeAndre Ayton
AAU Team: Greg Strickling Basketball
State: San Diego, California
DeAndre Ayton is the top player and prospect in the class of 2017. The 6’10 8th grader has shown incredible improvement over the last 12 months. Ayton affects every shot in the paint, has a great motor, and can step out and knock down mid range jumpers. Ayton’s wingspan and intensity make him an absolute force on the glass. DeAndre finishes around the rim with power but has enough body control to avoid foul trouble. One of the best middle school prospects in recent memory.
