Tyshawn Archie, a 6’2 G out of Houston, TX poised to prove one thing, and that is be one of the top guards in the state of Texas. Archie is quietly improving his game and could very well be mentioned with the likes of the top players in the city when all is said and done.  His skill set along with his poised demeanor are just a few traits that makes him so special.  His biggest attribute may be that he does not ever shy away from the big moments.  The brighter the lights, the bigger he plays, and he just is just getting started in terms of upside and potential.  

He is the ultimate package from the guard position.  He has a natural feel for the game and makes plays whenever it is asked of him.  His ball handling skills and lightning quick first step separate him from many players in his class.  He has above average court vision and can see plays before they happen.  He is at his best in the open floor distributing passes to open teammates as well as getting to the rim and finishing at the basket.  Although still improving his jump shot, has shown a lot more consistency in his mid-range shot as well as behind the three-point line.  He is comfortable playing off the ball and uses screens well to get open and is always in attack mode making it exceedingly difficult for opposing teams to plan for.  

His size and speed allow him to keep people in front of him on the defensive end of the floor.  He anticipates well and gets in the passing lanes leading to steals and easy transition baskets.  Archie is the ultimate competitor and does not take plays off on the defensive end.  He positions himself well to get defensive rebounds and is not afraid to go in the post and play physical in situations where he may face stronger opponents.  His all-around play on the court has begun to pick up attention from schools in the state and they are paying close attention to his development. 

This past season during the spring and travel season he played for the talented and well coached Team Temple squad out of Texas as they made their first rounds in the talented NY2LA national circuit.  He was able to play against many of the top programs in the country and display his skills.  We fully expect for his recruiting to take off in a big way as he goes into school ball and should be one that coaches play close attention to.
