Summary

Caleb Murphy is a quick guard that has great ball-handling skills. He is very dynamic in the open court using his handle to explode past defenders. He is also very good in the half-court when it comes to breaking down defenders in one on one opportunities. He is very long and has a wiry strength which helps him finish at the lane through and around contact. Caleb can be nonchalant at times and his entire game will decline, but when he is on, he is a tough cover for the defense.

Notes

Tip-Off Classic - Lawerenceville, GA - 4/19-21/2019


Quick off the dribble in the open court, has the ball on a string, and gets to the basket with ease. Stays low to the ground and changes pace and directs without resistents. He doesn't have great vision but will locate a teammate in the lane. He needs to continue to work on his passing as he creates opportunities when breaking down the defense. 


Adidas MDC - Emerson, GA - 5/25-27/2019


At this event, Caleb didn't play well in the first half. He had poor ball control and could not finish well in the lane. During the second half of play, Caleb exhibited his skill of knocking down mid-range jumpers and finishing through contact in the lane. 


Georgia Top 100 - Powder Springs, GA - 6/21/2019


Played and showed extreme ball control and great ball-handling skills for the point guard position. He got anywhere on the court.


Hawks Naismith Holiday Classic - Norcross, GA - 12/13-14/2019 


Attacking the paint and finishing at the rim. Creating off the dribble getting to his mid-range pull-up. Drew the task of defending Sharife Cooper, did a great job of using his elite length to contain him. Showed the ability to be an elite wing defender moving forward in his career.
