"The Artist" Formerly known as Franklyn Ayissi-Etoh has a Masterpiece of a Weekend

Franklin Ayisse-Etoh took home the MVP for the Middle School All-American game with a double-double performance with 15-point 10-rebound stat-line and for stretches of the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp he was flat out dominant.  His overall performance positions him as a Top 5 candidate in the class and he could easily garner conversation as the top player in the class.  At this level there isn’t anything he can’t do – he has the size, strength, and athleticism to play all 5 positions equally as well but his future is that of a versatile scoring wing.

Ayisse-Etoh is a terrific long armed athlete that does a great job running the floor and attacking the basket on the break and in the half court. He can hit the open three with time and space but he is at his best when getting to the paint where he can finish through contact. Franklin is an exceptional rebounder on both ends mainly because he can get rebounds in and out of his area and he has a natural nose for the ball. He has great hands is also a good passer and ball handler and he’s tough, plays with an edge, and WANTS TO BE the best player on the court at all times, his competitiveness is contagious. Defensively “The Artist” did a great job of challenging shots on and away from the ball.

Right now starring as an athletic combination forward that is a match up problem for any team or individual trying to guard him - his number one asset is his ability to attack and pressure the paint. He is a great rebounder and excellent multi-position defender. His skills need to continue to be honed to be considered a full time shooting/combo guard exclusively but without a doubt regardless of position he is simply one of the most elite BASKETBALL PLAYERS in the country he can play with and give it to anyone who wants, “The Artist” is a flat out problem and it looks to only be getting worse for the opposition as he continues to develop.

How much of a problem is he?  Check out the weekend mix-tape released exclusively here on
