Grassroots Tip Off LIVE
6'7' 2018 Adafe Price (Queen City Thunder)
By Jamie Shaw

By all accounts, Adafe Price is a beast. As we wrote after a Top 80 camp this year,'Through playing the best competition in the state at the NC Top 80, through multiple AAU events, and even in NC Phenom 150 camps, Price has produced. Well, that production is finally reaching absurdity.'

Off the rip, the two things really stand out about Adafe Price. 1. He is a high academic kid with around a 3.8/3.9 GPA and 2. He is an absolute monster on defense.

Given his length and athleticism, the defensive part is to be expected. He is able to defend multiple positions after the 2016 NC Top 80 camp we wrote,''Price played an aggressive style of defense which is rarely seen in the camp setting.Standing a lengthy 6'7 with an enormous wingspan, Price has superior lateral quickness and his long arms allow him to make steals and deflections'during the course of the game. He has impeccable'defensive instincts and did an outstanding job of anticipation of the passing lanes.'

Offensively, Price is no slouch either. He is a supreme athlete and is able to use that, coupled with his length, to finish around the basket in a number of ways. He also has a solid wing handle and is able to use his pace and ball skills to act as a secondary ball handler in a pinch.

While Price has not received any offers, that should change very soon. Schools like East Carolina, Yale, Princeton, and others are watching Price's every move.

Coaches ' After Price's performance at this weekend's Grassroots Tip-Off LIVE, college offers should start coming. Without question he will help a tournament team win a lot of games.
