POTOMAC, Md. -- TT was on hand at Bullis to watch 2018 point guard and Terps target Prentiss Hubb. Our take on his game is below:
Live Scouting Report: Prentiss Hubb
School: Gonzaga College HS (Washington, D.C.)
Position: Point/Shooting Guard
Athleticism: Above average, but not exceptional. Hubb is "sneaky" quick, runs well, and has enough burst to get by most defenders, but would not be considered an elite athlete.
Shooting: Hubb can shoot it, and in the scrimmage he knocked down 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. He does have a bit of a low release, but has a quick trigger.
Ball-handling: Solid, and like most his age, will have to work on his off (right) hand.
Defense: Hubb moves his feet well, has enough lateral quickness, and can disrupt passing lanes with his length and exceptionally long arms.
Passing: The sophomore makes "efficient" passes. He doesn't force much, and makes the right pass at the right time.
Rebounding: He'll make the effort, although at 6-2 and slightly built, that's not his forte at this time.
Intangibles: For a sophomore, Hubb has plenty of patience on the court and let's the game come to him. He seems to have an exceptional feel for the game.
Summary: Gonzaga uses Hubb a lot off the ball, so we'll see if he grows into a full fledged two-guard or transitions to the point as his high school career progresses. He has a Maryland offer, and while he does not overwhelm you with physical gifts, his skill level is solid, he knows how to play, has the IQ that Mark Turgeon likes in a guard, and he can knock down shots. Hubb makes winning plays on the court, and combined with his skills, has the look of a potential top 50 combo guard by the time he's a senior.
