Colten Kresl used the #EBAAllAmerican Camp as a platform to showcase his talents in the past two years. The class of 2017 guard showed why he picked up an offer from Northern Arizona and gained the attention from many other West Coast schools this year.

Kresl is a super smooth guard who can get his jumper at nearly any moment. His crafty ball-handling and superb footwork keep defenders off balance, which sets up the rest of his game. Kresl projects to be a point guard at the next level, because of his skill and vision with the basketball. Since the 6-foot-1 guard has the ability to knock down the long range jumper at a high percentage, he can also spotlight on the wing. Kresl’s challenge moving into his junior school season should be focused on becoming more efficient. Sometimes the talented guard can go stretches where he presses the issue rather than letting the game come to him.
