Tarkanian Classic - Las Vegas, NV - 12/18-19/2018
Michael is a true hybrid big; he has the size, strength, and athleticism to mix it up on the interior. He also has the ball skills, shooting touch and quickness to play on the perimeter as well. He is a matchup nightmare for whoever is in front of him on both ends of the floor. He likes to ignite the fast break with his ability to snatch down rebounds and push the ball in transition. He will drift on the offensive end if the ball does not swing his way on a regular basis. He is also not a great passer, typically waits until he gets in trouble before he looks for an outlet. While he is physically imposing, he does not use his body well in the post. Overall, he still has room to grow but I see no reason why he would not be an exceptional player at the college level when his time comes.

Really getting after it on the defensive end. Running the floor and hitting the jumper from the outside. Showing off his handle on the fast break
NBPA Top 100 - Charlottesville, VA - 6/11-14/2019
Moving well without the ball finding himself the beneficiary of a lot of drop off passes at the rim.
Chick-Fil-A Classic - Columbia, SC - 12/19-21/2019
Day 1 - Made C&S 3 from L corner. Block at the rim. Nice touch around the rim with contact. Make C&S 3 from the top of the key. Jumper is looking smoother since the last time I saw him. Nice lefty drive into jump stop and short jumper make. Blocks shot at the rim, gathers the rebound, pushes in transition and AST to streaking Terry at the rim. Make step-back 3 from the left corner. Displaying a little athletic ability as he almost caught 2 bodies on back to back plays.
Day 2 - Gathered offensive reb and put back for 1st basket of the game. Thunderous dunk off a baseline drive from the right corner. Explosive in the open court and showed nice touch at the rim. Easy dunk off drop step on the left block. Going to work on the interior with back-to-back post ups with face up jab-steps and head fakes for dunks.
Iverson Classic 2021- Bartlett - TN - 5/7/2021
Straight-line drive for easy R hand layup. Uses his strength to bully a smaller defender in the paint. Def reb push in transition, crossover past the defender at the top of the key, and finishes in the lane with a right-hand dunk.
