Fortune will battle on the interior. She is both a shot changer and a blocker who will rebound as well. She’s getting better and less mechanical. Overall, Fortune is rounding into a solid center.
7/8/13 – FILA Nationals (Suwanee, Ga.) – Stephen Peck
Fortune used her size well around english literature essay the bucket to finish in traffic. She does a good job of keeping the ball high on rebounds.

Fortune is not using all of her potential athleticism in this showing. Her length is her greatest attribute at this point. She made a few face 10′ shots but hasn’t grown into her body just yet.

For a young post, Fortune has great tools though she hasn’t put it all together yet. We like what she can be in the future, but as of now she isn’t consistently tieing it all together. Think essay writing on my hobby Alyssa Rice (OH-14) in terms of her length/style of play right now.

It looks like Fortune has grown about three inches since her last eval. She was solid here and is making plays from the high post and has great length. When she grows into her body watch out.

Fortune has a long, lanky frame for a post her size but is not skinny. Her skill set is that of a hi-lo post. She caught three times at the FT line, pivoted and hit the post underneath. It appears that she hasn’t been shown post positioning. She catches high help with ged essay and keeps high on the rebound.

She an athletic post player with good size. Lean but athletic looking frame. Just a play-maker. Reacts to a defense and can make some adjustments with her combo of skill and athleticism. Can put it on the floor and face up.
