Player spotlight from City of Palms Classic at Fort Myers, Fla...
Chris Taft, 6-8, 210, PF, Xaverian, Brooklyn, NY:
Here's a good-looking post prospect. He displayed legitimate post offense and court awareness. The adidas ABCD all-star features a nice hook and some other legitimate post moves while wasting very little motion. He extends like Eddie Griffin at the rim and makes his shot tough to block.
Defensively, he's willing to mix it up inside and makes plays with presence and savvy. The way he chases shooters inside is impressive, and he gets off his feet well.
Taft says he's interested in Duke, North Carolina, St. John's, Pittsburgh and Kentucky. It appears as though St. John's and Pitt are on him the hardest.
