6’8” 2020 Tyler Young
New Light Disciples
Young is one of the best pure rebounders we have seen in the past couple of years. He has unreal hands and feet to go along with touch and very passer friendly hands. Weighing in at over 250lbs he has long arms as well, he does all his work before the ball touches the rim, great positioning and great understanding of angles. His rebounding translates, to the point where he may lead his D1 conference in rebounding at lease one year.

Smith was the most effective rebounder I saw in the entire event due to his ability to grab all of his rebounds at or above rim level, and his grab and go ability making his efforts on the glass that much more valuable. He has an emerging offensive games and does a really nice job fitting in with this group. Love his game moving forward.
6’8 ’20 Tyler Young (New Light Disciples)
There should be no real argument here, as the answer is Young. He can bang down low with the best of them, able to reliably position himself and clear out space from anywhere in the paint. Young has great hands, footwork, and utilizes his body extremely well, which is the perfect recipe for a high-level rebounder.
