Edwardsville 6’6” small forward Caleb Strohmeier impresses with his combination of length and strength on both ends of the floor. He handles it well for a wing and looks very crisp in everything he does on the court. The sophomore has a quality skill level with his ability to both handle it and stretch the floor with a jumper. Also displays nice bounce around the hoop where he fights hard on the glass and finishes strong. If he keeps growing could develop into a stretch four, but already is worth being on the college radar with his physical tools and game.
The sophomore spoke about how he would describe his game.
“I like to attack the rim, but I can knock down the open shot on the perimeter. I see myself as a stretch three. I can go inside, but also knock down shots from the outside too.”
He was a key part of a Jets-Ramey 15U squad that was dominant over the summer.
“It went good. We ended up #1 in the nation. I think it helped me improve individually as a player.”
Where did he see his game develop the most this summer?
“Definitely ball handling was a big area I tried to improve on. My shot too. Knocking down open threes.”
He chatted about the preparation for the high school season and what his role will be on the team.
“It is going good. I really like my teammates. They try to find me. I really like playing with them. We are going to be tough this year. AJ Epenesa, Mark Smith, and Oliver Stephen are three great players. I feel like as well as they did last year the coaches we play against are smart and they are going to be looking towards them. I am going to hopefully be the open guy and knock down some shots for our team.”
