Alex O’Connell– (Milton, Ga), –Milton– 2017
Position: Shooting Guard
O’Connell is one of the better shooters in Georgia’s 2017 class. His shot is crispy with a high release and he is has a quick release. He has a high basketball IQ and knows how to move without the ball to get open. He has the ability to shoot off the catch or dribble where he can reel off several deep jumpers if he gets out.
Not only is O’Connell a threat from behind the arc, but this 6-foot-3 guard is crafty off the dribble as he does a good job penetrating the defense. He can break down defenders in transition, from the top of the key or the wing and get into the lane. Defensively applies good pressure on the ball and is alert away from the ball to help cut off a drive. O’Connell is a player to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.
