STRENGTHS IN DION'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Dion gets on the glass with some spark to ring up a bunch of rebounds. He also moves his feet well as a defender and uses his quick hands to deflect passes.

AREA TO IMPROVE: His perimeter game is currently being worked on and he should be more consistent if he works hard on this aspect of his individual game.

EVALUATION: Only a junior, Waiters is a player to watch this high school season. If he does improve his ability to score from the perimeter, his list of schools will expand.

Dion possesses quick hands which helps him on the defensive side of the ball.
