Keshaun Tonsall 6’3 175 2021 Maury High School, Norfolk VA
Keshaun jumps off the page athletically and possesses creative scoring instincts and playmaking skills. His wiry frame features long legs and a very long wingspan and he is able to contort his body and slice with explosiveness around and over defenders attacking the rim. Keshaun is outstanding in transition and has the skillset and size that allows him to play either guard position.
While a very good passer and capable lead guard, Keshaun is probably best off the ball as he is a reliable spot shooter from deep, very efficient in mid-range areas and can hit the pull-up jumper at a good rate. He uses quick rips, long strides and quickness to blow by defenders and get into seams of the defense where his creativity as a shot-maker, his length and ability to finish with either hand allows him to covert at a very good rate around the rim. He also does a great job finding cutters even in traffic and delivering timely passes. He is an explosive leaper and once he turns the corner or finds daylight he won’t hesitate to launch to the rim for a vicious slam where his bounce and length make him nearly impossible to challenge at the rim. Keshaun has some creativity in his handle and uses a change of pace nicely and can be difficult to stay in front of. His length and quick elevation make it tough to contest his pull-ups. He’s a versatile and well-rounded offensive player. Keshaun is a solid rebounder and is very active around the glass for put backs. On the defensive end, his length and quickness make for a versatile presence and matchup luxury. He is quick enough and has excellent footwork allowing him to contain the dribble and his length allows him to guard taller players effectively.
Keshaun plays hard and sets the tone for Maury on both ends of the floor. He has great instincts defensively off the ball and his quickness, consistent effort, and length allow him to impact games all over the floor defensively. Keshaun was a starter and a key piece for Maury High School’s state championship run last season and now assumes the leadership role on a young but talented team. His talent and his work ethic sets the tone and he demonstrated solid leadership qualities at the recent Old Dominion University Team Camp as not only the go-to guy and coach on the floor but a cheerleader from the bench when not in the game.
Keshaun finished averaging over 22 points per game during a weekend where he also went for 33 points in a win and twice recorded double-figure rebounding efforts. He will be one of the 757’s top recruiting targets in the 2021 class I have no doubt. Coaches should take note now!
