Las Vegas: Makai Ashton-Langford
Wenyen Gabriel has gotten majority of the attention this spring for Vinny Pastore’s Mass Rivals team. But on Thursday morning at the adidas Uprising Summer Championship it was point guard Makai Ashton-Langford that shined. In a match up with highly touted point guard Payton Pritchard, Ashton-Langford, a 2017 recruit, competed on both ends of the floor and finished with 27 points on 10-for-16 shooting and tossed out a trio of assists in a win over Team Fast Elite. At 6-foot-2, Ashton-Langford has good size for the position and plays at a great pace. He’s not overly quick, but he changes his speeds well and he’s strong driver that doesn’t mind playing through contact. Ashton-Langford was 1-for-2 from three, but rarely looked to shoot jump shots. His first option was to drive the ball and Team Fast struggled to keep him out of the paint. He’s confident in his scoring ability and is very good at adjusting his shot at the rim. While he was in score mode in this one, Ashton-Langford has good vision and is a good passer. Ashton-Langford told Scout he has scholarship offers from Rhode Island, Providence, St. Bonaventure and Boston College. He also cited interest from Xavier, DePaul and Virginia Tech. He said he’s only taken visits to Providence and Boston College to date.
