Amber Skidgel – Archer HS (Lawrenceville, Ga.) — 2015
Position: Small Forward
Club Team: Georgia Metros
ProspectsNation.com Grade: 3 star
Committed College: Georgia
3/9/14 – GHSA Class 6A Championship Game – Brandon Clay
Skidgel has blossomed into a bigger wing player capable of knocking down the open jump shot. The combination of her size and skill essay on human nature make her a prospect who could contribute at multiple levels of play collegiately.
6/8/13 – EBA Super 64 Camp (Suwanee, Ga.) – Stephen Peck
Skidgel showed a different side to her game today. She showed to be a solid position defender and could hold her own vs. top shelf athletes. She even put the ball on the floor tough when the defense closed out long on her. She is a high IQ kid, which should accentuate her skills.
4/13/13 – PSB Pre-Season Shootout (Suwanee, Ga.) – Jonathan Hemingway
She has shown herself as a big wing and even really see her a 3/4 combo forward potentially depending on matchups. She moves well in straight essays online for sale lines, but lacks above average left to right mobility. On her shot, Skidgel has a high follow through and it is pretty when she catches it in rhythm. We would like to see her play with a PG that could set the table for her to see if that increased her production.
7-7-11 – AAU Nationals (Orlando, Fla.) – Keil Moore
Skidgel is a bouncy two guard/small forward option. She has nice elevation and form on her jumper along with solid ball skill. She has improved her game since last fall.
9/5/10 – Rising Stars Camp (Buford, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
She has both good length and is a bigger wing. We envision that Skidgel has plenty of essay about gun control room to mature physically and skill set wise. She is already showing a nice midrange game with a consistent follow through. That said she has a little swing in her shooting motion. She has good motor skill that lets her pick up footwork instruction quickly. She is still growing into her body though at game speed.
