Each and every time Phenom Hoops 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: Steven Lassiter
Committed to: UNC-Pembroke
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
'Although there were numerous worthy standouts for this Trinity Christian group, Lassiter continually stood out as their leader. His tough, unselfish, low-maintenance identity allows him to do the little things and capitalize as needed on both ends of the floor. Lassiter plays with a high motor, finishes well around the basket, and works hard to secure extra possessions. He's a quality screener, rebounder, and finisher.'
'He's a steady, reliable, fairly versatile forward/post prospect with the ability to toggle between the paint and perimeter at a useful rate. Lassiter passes, shoots, and handles the ball well for his size, but also has obvious value as an active defender and two-way rebounder. He's a naturally productive player who simply understands how to lead by example and produce within his role at all times. Lassiter does a little bit of everything, and is capable of expanding his production whenever necessary.'
'Lassiter is one of those underrated prospects that you just love what he brings and does for his team. The 6'7 prospect brings a ton of versatility to the floor with his size and skillset, showing his ability to operate from multiple levels, put on the deck and get to the basket, but also stretch the defense. Also liked his versatility on the defensive end.'
'Lassiter is a name that schools could start looking at more. He has good size at 6'7, can play multiple positions on the floor, and is a player that can do a little bit of everything. Lassiter is a strong, athletic, versatile prospect that can make an impact and battle down in the paint but also step out and be effective from the outside. He opened some eyes on Day 1.'
'Although there were multiple notable standouts for the Spartans, their lack of true interior pieces made Lassiter's performance even more remarkable. His shot-making ability will most likely be the top takeaway for most spectators, but folks have to appreciate everything he did as a defender and rebounder. Lassiter finished with consistency, ran the floor in transition, and contained bigger opponents quite well inside the paint. He was a major asset in this contest.'
