Rainbow City, AL (Future150) -- This past AAU season, the Atlanta Celtics had one of the most powerful 14U teams in the country. They were loaded with future college prospects at every position. Maybe their most underrated prospect was Alabama combo guard Chris Lengyel

After standing out at our Future150 Main Event Atlanta Tournament, which the Celtics won, he showed up at our Future150 All-Southeast Camp in August looking to make a statement. Mission accomplished. He was named an all-star selection at the camp, and left a lasting impression on our staff.

"Keep an eye out for the skilled 6'1" combination guard, who is built to score the basketball. He has some nice ball skills along with some impressive slashing skills. This past season, he played on a powerful Atlanta Celtics 14U squad as a secondary option, but expect him to really make a name for himself in the state of Alabama as a freshman this year. He's already proven his division one projection through our multiple viewings of him this calendar year."

He followed that performance by closing out his fall season by shining at our Future150 National All-American Camp, where he was again named an all-star selection in a much more talented pool of prospects.

Playing his first season of varsity basketball at Southside High School, he projects as one of the best freshman in the state of Alabama.

"This season is about me being a complete floor general and being more vocal on and off the court. I am also working to get my body prepared for the college level eventually," he told Future150.

As he gets acclimated to the speed and talent level of varsity basketball, you can expect his strengths to really begin to shine through on the floor.

"My biggest strength is being able control the tempo of the game. The point guard has to be able to read the defense coming off of ball screens and be able to make the correct decisions. I'm working on being able to finish more effectively with my left hand."

While he isn't going to set the varsity scene on fire in his home state this season, he should be monitored by division one schools, starting now.
