School: Knoxville Catholic High School
Asbaty is an awesome athlete. This star right here is tough and physical on both ends of the court. He is a three-level scorer with a silky smooth touch. Bringing the rain from deep but putting in heavy work in the paint. He is gritty gobbling up boards and gets a ton of offensive putbacks. Asbaty gets after rebounds like a machine battling bigs for complete control and using his physical strength to outmatch them. And he plays solid defense.
Caleb’s energy is infectious on both ends as well. Dropping dimes looks equally as impressive. Playing with #ProOne, he greatly improved his shooting and defense taking his basketball IQ to a whole new level. This stud can knock down shots from anywhere on the floor and thrived taking on the other team's best player.
Last season, Asbaty averaged 10pts, 3rebs, 2asts, and 1stl. He elevated that to a double-double machine by fall league, averaging around 16pts, 11rebs per game. Setting the stage for a huge breakout season. I could hardly believe how fierce and scrappy he was at his size. He has set a goal to win a state championship and become a Mr. basketball finalist. That’s a high bar but Caleb has the passion and fire to get it done, a true warrior.
What coaches should know is that Asbaty will bring this toughness and extreme work ethic with him. He takes great pride in his defense guarding 1-4 easily. Coachable and a relentless competitor that no one can match on that court. He only dreams of playing next level with the right fit whether that is D1-D3. Whoever lands him won’t be disappointed. You have to find your way to Knoxville because he and his team will certainly be among the best in the state.
