STRENGTHS: Can utilize his good ball dribbling skills to get to the rim effectively

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: The physical part of the game will need improvement. But this is an area that can easily be worked on over the next year. Consistency is always an area of any guard's game that will need progress.

EVALUATION: Rexton is young enough and has some time to make improvements to his game to prepare himself for a life in division one college basketball. St. Anthony's High School is a tough academic school and prepares the students quite well in the classroom. So expect all the academically minded institutions to watch his skill level over the next two seasons.

While this particular school is known to have a tremendous football program, the basketball side is always well worth watching.
