After suffering a major injury, Nas Berry has made a full recovery and returned to the hardwood. He’s a skilled, well-rounded guard prospect with a strong frame and quality penetration sense. Berry possesses useful creation instincts, which allows him to reliably generate clean looks for himself and others off the bounce. He’s great at getting downhill in the open floor, making the correct read, and playing through contact. He finishes around the basket with consistency. Berry hits jumpers at a quality rate from midrange or beyond the arc, and understands how to make an impact with or without the ball in his hands. He’s also a willing defender and rebounder. 

Regarding his actual return to the court, it’s easy to see the appeal. Berry should shine as a focal point for Fort Mill during his upcoming junior season. Between their personnel and overall team structure, one should expect him to be among their leading players on both ends of the floor. In addition, college coaches would be wise to start laying groundwork now—as he will be a quality piece at the next level. 

For those who don’t remember Berry, read what we previously said: “Moving onto a player that easily stood out as one of the top all-around performers in attendance, Nas Berry. He’s a smart, skilled, strong-bodied guard prospect with a terrific downhill sense and quality feel for the game on both ends of the floor. Berry utilizes his size and frame to power through traffic and finish or make sharp passes to open teammates. He’s a capable defender, rebounder, and perimeter shooter with no glaring weaknesses on either end of the floor. Next in his development process is working to improve as a transition defender, as it would make him a better leader by example. Coach Dawkins on Berry: “Nas has the potential to be a very strong player at the varsity level. Possesses noticeable scoring prowess. Gifted off the bounce. Could immediately contribute to a varsity program as a freshman. Needs to continue crafting his offensive talents, as he truly shows elite-level potential.” Berry made a lasting impression with his showing at camp and will definitely be a prospect to monitor over the coming years at Nation Ford.”
