Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp: 2020 Al-fatir Y. Connor Old School PG with New School Flair

Al-fatir Y. Connor is a point guard that can run the team and keep the defense honest with his ability to press the paint and penetrate on a consistent basis.  Connor pushes the ball under control and makes good decisions at high speeds in the open court, has terrific vision, and his passing is special in the open court. 

He is an outstanding athlete with eye popping quickness who affects the game with his length, assertiveness, and IQ.  Al-fatir plays chip on the shoulder and with swagger; he exudes confidence and is contagious to teammates.  A born leader and the true definition of a PG; he enjoys the assist just as much if not more than the score – a pass first player who is able to use his baseline to baseline quickness to set up his teammates or himself for easy scores.   

Connor makes the player around him better and sacrifices his game for the benefit of the team; a point guard in every way – but do not be confused if asked he can score with the best of them and as a complete players he plays both ends exhibiting great ability to exert ball pressure on his opponents.  Even in a camp setting that often promoted offensive outburst Connor played his game and stuck to the script; as a member of the 2020 class he proved on the court that he has to be looked at as one of the nation’s elite floor generals.
