2022 G Cooper Macaulay plays with a constant chip on his shoulder every time that he steps out on the floor.  The 6’4 G was an all-district standout during his sophomore campaign at Fort Worth Christian High outside of Dallas and the honor was no fluke.  He is headed in the right direction as he continues his outstanding play on the court and is making a case to be one of top guards in the Dallas area and beyond.

To simply say that he can shoot the basketball is an understatement.  He may very well be the best pure shooter in all of Texas.  He has a lightning quick release and can get his shot off against just about any defender.  He can step well beyond the three point as well as pull up for mid-range jump shots.  He has put a tremendous amount of time in improving his ballhandling skills and this has helped him be able to be more of a combo guard than in the past.  He sees the floor well and has not trouble finding cutting teammates slashing to the paint or getting rid of the ball in double teams.  He has a nice build that allows him to take contact and finish strong at the rim with either hand.  He is quick enough to beat defenders off the dribble and has the IQ and awareness on the court to always make the right plays. 

Defensively, his toughness and passion make up for he may lack physically.  He is a sound on the ball defender who sticks to his principles and does not take gambles that could cost his team.  He can keep guys in front of him as well as hold his own in pick and roll situations where he is forced to go in the paint against bigger players.  One of the best attributes that he holds is his ability to rebound the basketball at the guard position.  He boxes out well and has a good feel for where he is around the basket.  The fact that he is excels on the court only enhances his high GPA in the classroom which is what makes him a cannot miss recruit for program in the southern region.

There has been a recent uptick in schools that have put his name on the radar of prospects that they will continue watching into the spring travel season.  We fully expect for his recruiting to intensify and for him to be someone that will be on household name among the top players in the state of Texas.
