VIDEO: Top junior DeAndre Ayton does things 7-1 players shouldn't be able to do

By

DeAndre Ayton from Hillcrest Prep in Arizona is ranked as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2017, but coach Kyle Weaver says that distinction sells the 7-1 star short.

Weaver says Ayton is not just the best player in his class.

“Any class, hands down,” Weaver said recently. “He’s a presence on defense and a bigger presence on offense. You don’t see a lot of 7-1’s who can stretch out and shoot 3s.  And you don’t find bigs who defend like that. He’s not just an offensive monster, but a defensive monster.”

Weaver also believes that Ayton is that “LeBron James-type kid,” who can attract top-50 national recruits to Hillcrest, as the program hopes to grow into a national powerhouse.
