Tyrese Maxey highlights, oh, and his team wears checkerboard

Tyrese Maxey can’t get enough of the checkerboard, and who can blame him? The Kentucky signee’s high school season has started and below is a short highlight video of Maxey doing Maxey things. He can score from anywhere on the floor, he gets teammates involved, has great athleticism and is a lockdown defender. But you don’t need to hear it from me, John Calipari said as much when Maxey faxed in his LOI on Wednesday.

“Tyrese has unbelievable competitive spirit,” Calipari said in a release. “I love Tyrese’s basketball savvy. He has an elite ability to score the ball, yet he creates shots for his teammates, he defends and he rebounds. In all the time I’ve watched him play, rarely does he make the wrong play. He may not make every shot, but he almost always make the right play. You can tell that he’s a coach’s son. Physically he is going to be able compete with the best in the country.”

UK fans are going to love this kid, and if you care about this sorta thing, he really, really wanted to be a Cat. There was no drama in his recruitment and he committed to Kentucky early on in the process. Plus, he likes checkerboards so he’s probably a pretty cool kid all around.
