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: Georges Lefebvre
Committed to: Vermont
What the Player Said:
What made Vermont the place for you in the end and what were some of the determining factors that went into it?
Lefebvre: The energy on the campus as soon as I stepped foot on it. The atmosphere of the student life and the interactions between everyone is an environment I want to be a part of. It is a winning program and I want to be able to contribute to the continuation of this winning. And it’s also 2 hours away from my house.
What kind of relationship have you been able to build with the staff and how do you think that you will fit with the program/ how can they use you on the court?
Lefebvre: The staff members are not only really good coaches but great people. It is really easy to build good relationships when everyone is at the core a good person. Same thing with the players. On the court, I can use my versatility to be interchangeable on defense and play with multiple different lineups. This organization has been known for the ability to compete with anyone, and if I take my talents and do the work, I am confident that I can help in continuing this winning tradition.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“He’s a big, strong, athletic power forward prospect with an excellent blend of intelligence, smoothness and hard-nosed ruggedness. Lefebvre is a walking mismatch given his ability to score reliably from anywhere on the court and then immediately turn around to pose as the most disruptive defender in the building. He possesses great physical tools, but also displays an excellent feel for his game on both ends of the floor. Lefebvre protected the rim, forced turnover while switching across and reliably containing three to four positions during camp. He should remain one of the most well-rounded defenders in any basketball context. Next in his development process is continuing to work on his scoring arsenal from the low post, as it would make him nearly unstoppable given his current blend of size, strength, and shooting.” – NC Top 80 in April of 2019
“Lefebvre has all the tools, in fact, his tools are eye-opening and really leave the viewing intrigued. He has great length and is a good athlete. Defensively, he has a huge upside with his natural timing as a rim protector and his ability to move his feet on the perimeter. He knocked down a couple of threes, extending out to 30 feet and he was able to get downhill off the bounce from multiple spots on the floor. In this day of the 3 & D player, this one fits this mold (at a bare minimum).” – Rick Lewis
“At 6-foot-9, Lefebvre is incredibly skilled for his size and has the ability to overwhelm any assignment on either end of the floor. He handles the ball and sees the floor extremely well, which allows him to essentially do whatever he desires on the offensive side of the ball. Lefebvre is capable of relentlessly scoring the ball from anywhere within thirty feet and shoots the ball exceptionally well from the power forward position. He’s a terrific athlete with a great blend of length and strength, which he utilizes extremely well when attacking the basket, rebounding the ball, and protecting the rim.” – Jeff Bendel
