Nicholas Claxton (Columbia, S.C.), Legacy Charter / SC Raptors – 2017
Committed College: Georgia
Date: June 18, 2016
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: NBPA Top 100 Evals (Charlottesville, VA)
Claxton is a slender framed option at the power forward spot. In that way, he has more of a prototypical wing player look with a frontcourt friendly game. Claxton was effective here tricking opposing defenders around the rim with his ability to finish with his left hand at the basket.
Date: May 15, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Bob Gibbons (Suwanee, Ga.)
Claxton is a left handed 4/5 player standing at 6-10. He has range to the arc. He is active in the land as he flashes the ball and aggressively finishes around the rim. He is equally active on the defensive end where he contest shots in the paint.
