BrandonClayScouting.com Player Evaluations

Date: June 11, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

DeSousa is a mobile forward who can score on the move. Rebounding, defending and scoring around the basket sum up his game.

Date: December 22, 2015
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: City of Palms (Fort Myers, Fla.)

DeSousa is a power forward with legit size / shape around the rim. He runs the floor well in transition and is an elite specialist rebounding the ball in the lane.

Date: December 18, 2015
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: City of Palms (Fort Myers, Fla.)

DeSousa is an athletic power forward with strength and skill to finish. He showed the ability to score in the high post and in the low post. He has bounce to finish above the rim and to be dominating rebounder.

Date: May 3, 2015
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Bob Gibbons Invitational (Suwanee, Ga.)

DeSousa played primarily in the lane this weekend. He has incredibly long arms with the ability to rebound and finish effectively amongst defenders. His offensive skill set is not quite polished yet, but he is an explosive athlete. His build and athleticism put me in the mind of Daniel Giddens, an Ohio State signee in 2015. His free throw is far ahead of Giddens right now.
