Dallas, TX (Future150) -- When you think about it, it's pretty impressive how good 2020 point guard Amiri Crowder is right now, considering he's only been playing basketball since the seventh grade. The 6'2", 185-pound pass-first guard burst onto the scene this past AAU season at a number of Future150 events, including our competitive Summit Camp, where he was one of the standout performers.

"We're still waiting for the 6'2" floor general to turn the corner, but we're getting closer and closer to it happening. His size & strength are definitely positives of his game, but he needs to improve his perimeter shooting stroke. That being said, he's a gifted playmaker who has no trouble getting to the rim. He also likes to involve his teammates and rack up assists in the process. If he can become a consistent shooter, his projection takes him to the division one level."

Playing at Southwest Christian School (TX), he's off to a fast start in his sophomore season, currently averaging 14 points, seven assists, six rebounds and two steals per game. Recently, he's seen interest come his way from Florida Atlantic & UALR. A standout wide receiver and safety on the football field, he's getting college looks for his prowess on the gridiron as well. 

"I'm trying to get a state championship this year. I'd like to get 1st team all-district along the way," he told Future150 when asked about his goals for the season.

His late arrival to the game of basketball is a promising sign for the athletic guard, who is a cousin of Oakland Raiders star wide receiver Michael Crabtree. 

With goals of playing division one basketball, as time passes, that is becoming more and more of a safe bet. Stay tuned to Future150 as we continue to track the fast-rising guard prospect from the Lone Star State.
