Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Tristan Maxwell
Committed to: Georgia Tech
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“One thing is crystal clear, no matter the venue, no matter the setting, no matter who he is playing for, Tristan Maxwell is an elite level scorer. Some things never change. Maxwell has a knack for scoring, it’s in his DNA. It just comes natural for the silky-smooth shooting guard who has unlimited range. While many of the national pundits have questioned his overall athleticism, Maxwell has all the ingredients to play at the highest level.” – Phenom Hoops
“Tristan has a burning desire to be the best he can be. He’s an ultra-competitive player and plays at a high pace. What separates Tristan from his peers is his ability to get his shot off so quickly. He does his work early. He has all the proper footwork and has his hands ready which results in a quick release.” – head coach Duane Lewis in 2017
“Tristan is a silky-smooth shooter with unlimited range. What’s even more impressive is the simple fact that he does it all within the framework of the offense. He’s a total team player and at times may be a little too unselfish on the offensive end of the court. That being said, shooters translate at every level and that’s exactly what’s happening with Tristan.” – Phenom Hoops in 2017
“Maxwell is a proven scorer and has shown that time and time again. He will continue to be the go-to scorer, as he can simply get a bucket any time he wants, especially with his jumper. One can see that he continues to work hard in the weight room and with his conditioning, being able to withstand contact. What also stood out at the open gym is his handles and his vision on the court. Very impressive.” – Patrick O’Brien in 2019
“Right now, it would be difficult to label anyone other than Maxwell as North Carolina’s top bucket-getter. He’s smart, aggressive, and one of the most bloodthirsty competitors to come through our doors. Maxwell is never fazed, rushed, or worried about any opponent. He simply shows up and annihilates whoever is in his path. Maxwell is athletic and an elite scorer from all three levels. He also sits down and defends the point of attack extremely well.” – Jeff Bendel from NBPA Top 100
