John Calipari’s three prospective point guards in the 2017 class were split up last weekend. Trae Young and Quade Green played for Team USA in the FIBA 18U Americas Tournament. Stateside, Tremont Waters’ Expressions Elite team was in Las Vegas for the Fab 48.
Waters plays alongside Nick Richards, the second-ranked center in the country who is high on Kentucky. Waters placed UK in his top seven, but Connecticut appears have taken the lead as the Cats intensify their talks with Quade Green.
While Young is an outlier that plays like Steph Curry, Green and Waters share a style similar to Tyler Ulis. They are both smaller guards that can use miraculous methods to create enough separation to release a shot. If there is a difference between the two, Green is more physical near the rim whereas Waters’ range extends farther. Check out Tremont’s step-back in the highlights below.
