What Was Recently Said:
It feels like only a matter of time before Powers becomes a legitimate priority for various types of college-level programs. He's a tough, unselfish, high-motor big man with a winning mentality and a long list of favorable intangibles. Powers is so naturally productive through his blue-collar approach and willingness to do whatever possible to impact a game. He's a great rebounder with the combination of strength and activity to consistently outwork opponents for extra opportunities. Powers finishes around the basket, spaces the floor extremely well, and simply knows how to battle within the paint. He runs the floor hard in transition, passes effectively for his size, and contains his assignment properly on defense. Given his productive, low-maintenance identity, expect his recruitment to start blossoming over the coming months. Powers can be seen by college coaches at our Summer Havoc Live on July 6-7.
What To Expect:
Although he's only entering his junior season, it feels like Powers should have a lot more traction with college coaches. It's unclear if the general public realizes how impactful he is on a game-to-game basis, but it's obvious to those who consistently watch him perform. Powers is a sturdy, unselfish, blue-collar big man with a nonstop motor and the ability to make his presence felt with or without the ball in his hands. He displays a reliable inside-out offensive game, featuring touch, perimeter shooting, and the strength to play through contact. Powers provides nonstop energy on the glass (which makes him a consistent double-double machine) and does an excellent job of advancing the ball in transition. He understands his strengths from weaknesses as well as any player in the state and doesn't ever look to force the action or play outside of his capabilities. Powers also displays nice vision, toughness, and feel as a defender. There's no doubt he'll return as a focal point for Davie County, but it's probably time for college coaches to start laying groundwork with the highly productive big man.
