#9 RANKED PLAYER IN THE COUNTRY (CLASS OF 2016)
STAR RANKING: 5 STARS
WEIGHT: 205 POUNDS
AGE: 18 YEARS OLD
POSITION: SHOOTING GUARD
HIGH SCHOOL: WORD OF GOD CHRISTIAN ACADEMY IN NORTH CAROLINA/ TRANSFER FROM CHRIST THE KING HIGH SCHOOL IN NEW YORK
COLLEGE CHOICE: ARIZONA
NBA COMPARISON: Lance Stephenson/ Smaller version of former NBA player Jamal Mashburn
UPDATE: ALKINS WILL ATTEND ARIZONA
PLAYER SUMMARY: Alkins had a highly publicized transfer from legendary New York City program Christ the King high school to Word of God Academy in North Carolina. Word of God is a prep school which produced NBA All-Star John Wall. At first glance Alkins looks like NBA veteran Lance Stephenson as his game also resembles the former NYC legend. A powerfully built 6’4″ shooting guard, the 18-year old is a pure scorer and looks unstoppable in transition. He already has a 51-point scoring outing this season. Despite his powerful frame, he is very athletic and a phenomenal rebounder for his position.
Alkins is not a great all-around shooter at this time and will need to improve his decision-making ability when he heads off to college next year. His current game reminds me of NBA player Lance Stephenson when he was in high school (Lincoln High School, NY). Even with his deficiencies the 6’4″ shooting guard is as good a player as there is in the class of 2016. If he were a few inches taller he would be in the running for the number 1 player in the nation.
Whichever college team lands Rawle Alkins will be getting a potential difference maker that can push a good team to an elite level team. He has that New York City swagger in which he thinks and knows he’s the best player on the court at all times. If he can improve his shooting and decision-making he might be one of the top 3 players to come out of the class of 2016. Alkins is a one-and-done candidate just like the rest of the top high school seniors in most years.
