We’ve seen a lot of players come through our doors over the years, varying in appearance, skill level, and everything in between. We decided to put forth a “Getting to Know” series on some players who have attended events but still remain on the lesser-known side of things. Each of these prospects embody being a student-athlete and getting it done in the classroom as well as on the basketball court, and today’s edition will take a closer look at Kevon Vanderhorst of Trinity Academy of Raleigh.
We’ve seen Vanderhorst progress throughout the years, most recently stating, “The floor general is smart, unselfish, and offers a very balanced presence on either side of the ball. He’s a timely passer with quality vision and a willingness to find the best possible play and set up others with consistency. Vanderhorst has shown the ability to score with efficiency from all levels, but looks to prioritize running a team with poise above all else. He’s also proven to be a reliable defender and heady transition player with the combination of IQ, decision-making, and speed in the open floor to overwhelm opposing guards. Vanderhorst has made clear strides over the last calendar year, and his continued progression will be something for college coaches to monitor.”
Since then, there should only be more optimism surrounding Vanderhorst’s abilities as a floor general. He’s made massive strides over the last twelve months, both from a production and confidence standpoint. Vanderhorst is a steady, reliable point guard prospect with a nice balance between scoring and playmaking. Though he can burden the offensive load for stretches, he doesn’t try to do too much. Vanderhorst is also a reliable shooter and capable of playing alongside another ball-handler as needed. He and Trevor Barrett will share creation responsibilities, (and given their roster shakeup) and should both find ways to shine for Trinity of Raleigh. Going into his junior season, folks should be well-aware of Vanderhorst.
