Coach Frank says: Mekhi plays with great energy on every possession on both ends of the floor. He is a long and versatile wing who can do it all! He handles the basketball well and can run the offense, has very good vision and passing skills. He is a scorer! Mekhi has an excellent mid range jumper and is a strong finisher. He can get to the rim, play through contact and score, hit the short jumper or get his points off the offensive glass as he is an excellent rebounder. The long armed 6'5 wing sees the floor well defensively and anticipates well. He can defend the perimeter but doesn't mind getting physical in the paint. Mekhi is an exciting prospect; a guy who can score in bunches and gives you smart, productive play on both ends of the floor. He is very athletic and physical and his versatility makes for a tough defensive assignment for opponents. Under the mentorship of former Catawba star and Associate Head Coach Brian Graves who also played professionally, look for Long to progress into a highly sought after prospect this summer and throughout his high school career.
