Thomas Clement is a 2016 wing player from ED White who is as steady as you could want. He can score against smaller players in the post or catch and shoot from outside. The six foot plus high IQ basketball player is poised for a big senior season.
Clement had this to say about his strengths, “Some of my strengths are shooting the ball, being able to knock down a shot from anywhere.” He went on to talk about his ability to create off the dribble as well. He's a strong finisher at the rim with the ability to absorb contact.
On the defensive end he'll need to continue to improve his footwork to reach his potential. He's a high energy player that makes things happens by being in the right place at the right time and always willing to put his body on the line.
We asked him what he was working on and he had this to say, “I have been working on my strength, speed and explosiveness this off-season.” At times he tries to do too much and has to learn to trust teammates all the time instead of forcing.
This coming season their goal is to go as far as they can which includes a district championship. He understands he'll have to be a leader on and off the court for them to reach that potential. His personal goals are strictly tied into the team goals (team first mentality).
Thomas Clement currently has a 2.3 GPA with a 20 on the ACT but he expects both of those to rise this season. He's heard from Milsaps, Northwestern (in Kansas), and a couple others. His mental toughness and high skill level should impress coaches at that level.
