Class of 2020 guard Maddie Scherr of Florence, Ky., caught the attention of the evaluation staff before she ever stepped foot in a high school game.

Brandon Clay’s takeaway: The Midwest Showdown (May 2017)
Scherr is a elite option at the point position in the making. She’s grown to a legitimate 5-9 and filled out as well since last summer. She’s bigger physically than her class of 2018 teammates Mykasa Robinson and Seygan Robins already. Scherr showed in Cincinnati that she’s capable of playing a play ahead of the game even on Premier’s top EYBL team. It appears that she’ll be the cornerstone of the team for the next two summers after this loaded 2018 class graduates out.

Jonathan Hemingway’s takeaway: EBASuper64 National Showcase (June 2016) Scherr was one of the top 2020 point guards in the building at the Super 64 Showcase. Her size, skill and ability to score allowed her to standout above many of the other prospects. Her ability to shoot sets up the rest of her game. Defenders must honor the range on her jumper, which opens up space for Scherr to attack the lane. The rising freshman is far from a shoot first (shoot only) point guard. She is a willing passer and can get her teammates involved after she has drawn the help defender.
