2016 7-footer Thon Maker entered the summer as one of the best players at the high school level, regardless of class, and he cemented that status with his play on the grassroots circuit. Maker’s been in the news recently due to his move from The Carlisle School in Virginia to Athlete Institute in Canada, and while some have questioned the move there’s no questioning his skill level.
Among the other players training at Athlete Institute will be his brother Matur and guards Jalen Poyser (2015) and Jamal Murray (2016). Courtside Films put together a highlight reel of some of Maker’s best plays on the grassroots circuit this summer, and with many elite programs looking to land the big man we’ll be hearing a lot more from Maker in the months to come.
