One of 2019’s top prospects nationally is Tyrese Maxey, a 6-foot-2, 165-pound point guard from Garland (Texas) South.
Scout’s 17th ranked prospect in the class, Maxey describes himself as a versatile point guard.
“I try to set my teammates up well and get a couple buckets early,” Maxey said. “I like to stop the other team’s best player and I like getting to hole.
“I’ve been working on my midrange. I want to get better at becoming a true point guard and more vocal leader on court.”
“I try to not get caught up on it right now,” Maxey said. “I’m more worried about my game right now.”
The five-star point guard has taken several visits and plans to take at least another this summer.
“I’ve been to Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma State and Baylor,” Maxey said. “I know I would like to go to Oregon but it’s far from Texas so hopefully sometime in the summer.”
Maxey isn’t planning on deciding any time soon, but does have an idea of what he’ll be looking for in a school.
“I’m going to look for the best fit for me,” he said. “I want to go somewhere I can come right in and make an impact to win a national championship.”
