Grad Year / Position: 2016 – Guard
School / Hometown: Cartersville (Cartersville, Ga.)
Committed College: Undecided
The strength of Archer’s game, at least in the camp setting, continues to be his ability to hit the open jumper. He has the size and skill to play either back court position. However, his value centers around being a shot maker. Going into his senior year, we expect him to make a big impact at Cartersville High School.
Archer impressed our staff with his blend of size and skill at the camp over Labor Day weekend. He has ball skill to be a lead handler and the vision to put the ball in teammates hands at the right time. What separated Archer from other guards at the camp was his size. He has the length to be able to match-up with wings and be able to defend his position at most spots on the court. Add in the fact that Archer is a solid jump shooter and it all equals a guard with the tools to make noise this season.
