Scout Take

 Camron Dunson-Riggs | 6-5 Wing, 14.8 years old


"Raw, but ultra talented wing with an impressive athletic profile. Long and twitchy with outstanding bend athletically. Doesn't move like he's 6-5. Hangs his hat defensively at this stage as a havoc wreakor and disruptive on-ball defender. Motor has room to continue to grow. Great in the passing lanes and knocking handlers off rhythm with his lateral quickness and hands. Very good as a cutter off the ball, in transition and productive as an offensive rebounder from the wings. Handle has room to continue to polish, along with shooting. Tools to be a high level slasher down the line given further polish. Does a ton well early on and has plenty to build on, to go with key areas of development to monitor." -- Max Feldman
