In terms of pure on-court production, there is not much that 2022 G TJ Caldwell of Faith Family Academy in Texas cannot do.  The 6’5 Dallas native is as smooth as they come with the basketball in his hands and always plays within his game.  His size and length allow him to play multiple positions on the floor, and this past season he took that next leap in securing his name as a national talent despite only scratching the surface of his potential.  

Offensively, he makes a living blowing by defenders from practically anywhere on the floor and finishing at the rim with ease.  He can put the ball on the floor with either hand and is athletically as gifted as you will find anywhere at his position.  His height pairs with his court vision allowing him to find teammates in the half court as well as transition for easy buckets.  His biggest leap offensively has been his ability to consistently knock down the three.  This is what makes him a legit three level scorer, and it will only improve over time.  The separation for him offensively comes from his energy on the offensive end of the.  He plays extremely hard and does not give up on plays while constantly attacking the offensive glass as well being the vocal leader for him team on the floor.  

The defensive side of the ball is also an area where he is special.  His long arms and aggressiveness give him the ability to guard multiple positions on the perimeter.  He reads the passing lanes extremely well and gets a lot of steals that lead to transition baskets for his team.  He is strong enough to switch off on some post players, and rebounds extremely well for his size.  While still filling out physically, he is a work horse who competes as hard as any recruit that you find nationally and that is why his name is one who getting attention from top programs in the region.  

His play over the 6-12 months has landed him offers from Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and SMU.  He also recently picked up an additional offer from Tulsa.  This list will only continue to grow in the near futures as programs are increasingly showing a lot of interest.  TJ plays for the Team Griffin grassroots travel program.
