PLAYER SUMMARY: Virginia Head Coach Tony Bennett has done a remarkable job with the program in the last 5 years. He went out on the recruiting trail and landed a top 10 class. One of the players he landed is McDonald’s All-American Kyle Guy who was also named Indiana’s Mr. Basketball for 2016.

Guy is a 6’2 shooting guard out of Lawrence high school in Indiana. He is one of the top shooters in the class of 2016. He is an excellent 3-point shooter with a nice-mid range game. His style of play will fit in perfectly with the Cavalier’s style of play. Guy is a better athlete than we thought he was after evaluating his game. He has the ability to attack the rim and has better athleticism than we first thought and dunks with ease. Guy shows very natural passing ability.

The shooting guard has a nice handle, however he will need to improve it for the college level. He shows very nice court vision and reportedly has a high basketball IQ, which is not surprising since he is going to play for Tony Bennett and Virginia, who stresses mistake-free basketball. While Guy has played point guard in spurts we believe he will be strictly a shooting guard at UVA unless he can improve his ball-handling. He will be an undersized SG at 6’2″, however with the team defense the Cavalier’s play his height should be able to be hidden.

Guy will need to get stronger for the the competition he will face in the tough ACC conference. While a better athlete than we thought, it isn’t elite. With this being said, Kyle Guy is a player who we were surprised with when we evaluated him. He is a perfect fit for Virginia with his high basketball IQ, being a tough competitor, and the ability to shoot the ball. We look for Guy to get a lot of playing time next season for the Cavaliers and for him to have a very nice college career.
