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: Nyles Howard
Committed to: Navy
Season in Review:
Howard was a key piece for Carmel Christian this year, as they made it back to the state championship game and was able to secure the title. Howard played in 29 games as a senior, averaging 20 minutes a game, 8.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
'I'm a pass-first point guard who can also shoot the ball really well,' he said. 'And can defend the best player when needed. Been focusing on getting faster and bigger, also working on tightening my handles. I have been working on being more aggressive with the ball as well.'
'Very unselfish PG that makes the right decisions. Excellent defender with quick hands and very capable scorer when needing too.'
'Known for his size as a point guard, Howard has a nice blend of getting his teammates involved but also stepping up offensively when his team needs. He was showing more of his scoring threat, creating for himself and getting into the paint, finishing through contact or getting to the line, or showing nice touch in his floater. Howard has a natural feel for the game with the ball in his hands and knows when to get others involved or when he needs to step up even more for his team.'
'After watching him quite a few times now, Howard has really grown and shown that he is a capable guard that can initiate the offense but also be a scoring threat from multiple levels. That is tough as well with his 6'3 frame as well. And he is only continuing to develop his game.'
'Each time you watch him, Nyles continues to attract the eyes. On Day 1, he showcased his range all throughout the game, knocking down six 3-pointers but also leading the team, showing his playmaking ability, and using his size well as a lead guard.'
