NBA superstar and 2017 NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant recently gave Overtime his take on a few of the top high school prospects in the country. KD had some great insight on the following players:

LaMelo Ball: First up for KD was possibly the most famous high school prospect since LeBron James. Durant was high on LaMelo’s overall skills, pull up game and quick release. The youngest of the Ball brothers will be a major asset, like his older brothers Lonzo and LiAngelo, for the UCLA Bruins.

Zion Williamson: Arguably, the best high school dunker in years, KD described Zion as a once in a generation athlete. Durant stated that it’s nearly impossible to stop Williamson in transition. Zion is considering blue bloods, Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, Kansas and home state program, Clemson.

Scottie Lewis: Durant loved Lewis’s bounce and described it as launching pad athleticism. Kentucky and Florida are leaders for Lewis’s services for the 2019 season.

Cam Reddish: The Duke commit earned praise from KD for having off the charts athleticism and a great feel for the game. He appreciated Reddish’s catch and shoot ability and stated he could be a pro if he puts the work in.

Cole Anthony: Kevin Durant was more than impressed with the super athletic Anthony, out of Archbishop Molloy High School. Cole is the son of former NBA veteran guard Greg Anthony. The early leaders are Duke and Kansas for Anthony.

Keldon Johnson: The Kentucky commit received compliments on his scoring ability and was the only prospect that Kevin Durant has seen in person, at the Nike Peach Jam. Stated that once Johnson, learns the team game, he’ll be tough to stop.

Luther Muhammad: KD lauded Muhammad for his patience, toughness and overall NYC grit. Overtime was able to capture Muhammad’s reaction to KD reviewing his highlights and praise. Currently, Muhammad is a hard commit to Chris Holtmann’s Ohio State Buckeyes.
