2023 PG Kamal Francis Makes Unofficial Visit to UMBC

2023 point guard Kamal Francis (6’2, 160lbs - MD) “being just a freshman visiting a Division I campus and seeing the regimen, facilities and meeting the coaching staff and players provided him an excellent indication of what is going to take to reach this level of play” said Team Melo’s Donald Duncan.

Francis added, “I just want to stay humble, however, I am grateful and truly appreciative of UMBC and Coach Lewis for taking the time and showing interest in me.”

Francis is a smooth and skilled combo guard with good positional size and length. He has a natural feel and touch with good hands and a quick instinct and a high basketball IQ. He's a reliable ball-handler and good shooter off both the catch and the dribble. He's quick and fluid covering the court and moves equally well laterally making him an excellent on the ball defender. He performs at a high level in the mid-range area, and is even smart enough to use misdirection at various points in his attack.  Must finish better in the paint but that should improve as he builds his core strength.  

Kamal is one of those players that is moving up national boards slowly but surely, the reason why is exemplified by the game winning shot below – currently considered as one of the top guard prospects in the national class of 2023,  he combines a natural feel for the game with a good skill set, positional size, and solid length with a high developmental ceiling.
