Redding Quote: "If a guy is open, I'm going to hit him. With me I guess you could say it's pass first, even though a lot of people know that I can score. I actually do look to pass first. My coaches seem to get on me more about passing so I mean, I try and hit the open man."
AAU Scouting Report: Redding's what a Philly prep star is suppose to be, skilled, intelligent, and tough... very tough. He's probably one of the more efficient players you'll find on the high school level, as he consistently puts up numbers in every key category. He's not going to wow you with athleticism, but Redding knows how to play the game and that gives him the edge he needs to excel.
Standing 6-foot-4, 185-pounds, Redding's a solidly built prospect that is capable of playing shooting guard or small forward on the next level. Because he's one of the tallest players on Philly MJC, Redding often spends time on the offensive end posting up bigger defenders and using quick spins and dropsteps on the block to score. He also has the ability to score off the bounce, as evidenced by his sweet basline spin move that resulted in an old-fashioned three-point play on two defenders in a win over the Baltimore Stars.
Redding keeps the game simple and just makes plays. His handle is above-average, and he can finish with either hand at the rim. He's comfortable in any system possible and that's probably why he's such a coveted prospect.
