Having the ability to shoot from long range and defend at a high level is something that every player should look to work on in today’s game. Those two skills alone will get you playing time. The versatility which a player can have can go a long way in how successful a team can be. Here are my top 3&D players for the 2025 class.
Blackley can do everything on the court it seems. His ability to shoot over defenders is what makes him great on the offensive end because of his long 6’3″ frame. Blackley likes the catch-and-shoot situations from long range and can break you down off the dribble and hit the stepback shot. He stays in front of ball handlers and rarely gets beat. Blackley can protect the paint like a center and stay strong in front of shooters.
Miller is a pest on the defensive end of the floor. He likes to get into the head of handlers and make their life difficult throughout a game. Miller will pick off passes like a free safety in football and is excellent at poking the ball loose from behind. Miller has deep range and is automatic off the catch-and-shoot. He scores a majority of his points off of off-ball catch-and-shoot situations in general.
Ghee likes to play fast and in transition with a lot of poise in his game. He can break down his man and hit the side-step three-pointer. Ghee has a smooth shot that needs very little room to get off. He moves his feet laterally well and rarely gets beat off the dribble. Ghee can even switch onto bigger players. When it comes to trapping players Ghee is all over it as he swarms ball handlers forcing them to turn the ball over.
Ebeling can shoot the lights out from three-point range with his high and quick release point. He likes the corner three-point shot, especially off the catch-and-shoot. Ebeling is in range the second he steps past the half-court line. He is excellent at closing out and contesting shooters and has a nose for the ball when going for the trap/double team. Ebeling will dive after every loose ball in his direction.
Bragg plays with a lot of heart and hustle. He will shoot the gap and pick off passes most players couldn’t even come close to. Bragg is automatic from the wing spots behind the arc. He doesn’t force any shots and knows when to look for his shot within the flow of an offense. Bragg is great at poking the ball free from players and will look to send your shot into the bleachers if you beat him off the dribble.
