  • Scout’s Notes:

    NBA Top 100 Camp- (June 18-21, 2014) Maker continued to show why he is one of the top players in his class. He can score inside and on the perimeter and continues to become more comfortable with the ball in his hands. He is also a talented shot blocker who runs the floor well and plays hard on both ends.  

    Adidas Gauntlet Orlando- (May 24, 2014) After watching the other premier bigs on the circuit in his class, Maker was on display this weekend for Team Loaded as the featured player on his team. He ran the floor extremely well, was very vocal,and played with high motor and made open shots. You can tell he has put on a little weight due to he was mixing it up a little with other bigs on the low block. As his basketball IQ continues to grow, look for Make to take his game to the next level.

    Sean Couch Showcase - (Oct 23-24, 2014) Thon has all of the makings of a future pro. He passes the eye test, standing at a legit 7'0" with a muscular frame. He is a versatile big man with skills that transcend his age. He is also skilled post player with good footwork. 

    Super 60 Super Showcase - (May 25, 2012) Maker is a super long 6-foot-11 inch PF who has the skills of a guard at times.  He blocks everything at the rim.  He has great ball handling skills for a player his size.  The one thing that really caught our eye was his stroke from the 3-point line. It is easy to see how Maker might be the best in the 2016 class.
