Bagley III is the best forward in the country. He’s averaging 20.8 points, 10.2 rebounds on the season. Bagley is putting up 52 percent from the field and is showing touch around the rim. He is an elite finisher at the basket.

Bagley is one of the unique talents that protect the rim while also being able to hit the trail 3. In a game versus the LV Prospects, his touches were hard to come by and when he did catch it he was often doubled immediately. He kept his composure, fanned out of the post and eventually found his spot to make a big bucket in the last minute of the game. Bagley reminds me of Chris Bosh in terms length and skill set. He may be a slighty better athlete in the long term.

Bagley was impressive tonight with his high-low skill set. He started the game with a seal & spin alley oop dunk off of a high post feed. He has very good springs in his legs to rebound in the paint. He can handle in the open court and hit the high post jumper. His soft touch allows him to score over defenders in the lane. He finished with 17 points and 9 rebounds in a win over Putnam Vocational Academy tonight.

Bagley is a left handed forward who was willing to many of the little things here in this camp setting. He screened, rebounded and ran the floor at a high level. The left handed forward showed a soft touch on his jumper with range. Impressively he showed nice footwork with his back to the basket as showed reverse pivots and a rip-through in the lane.

Bagley III was impressive from start to finish. He reminds me in look of a young John Henson as a skilled option at the forward position. Bagley III showed himself as a potential swing forward who can handle the ball in the open floor and in the half court.
