The state of Michigan has produced some of the best guards nationally over the course of the last few years and much attention has been spent focusing on the class 2022.  Flying under the radar of sorts is G Elvis Machul Jr who had a very impressive spring and summer travel season. He has his eyes set on being a can’t miss guard out of the state and is working to put it all together.  The scary part is that with his unbelievable work ethic and drive, his ceiling is unlimited.

Standing at 6’1, he is a good size for an elite level point guard. He is nearly impossible to stay in front of in the half court and has the kind of toughness that coaches at the next level love to have in their program.  He is an elite ball handler who can break defenses down off the dribble and get to the paint from anywhere in the half court.  He sees plays before they happen and delivers passes with precision to his teammates.  He seems to always know how to put them position to score the ball and feeds off being the leader on the floor.  He has put in a lot of work on his three-point shooting and has become a legitimate three level scorer and is one of the most complete guards that you will find in his class.  He has a very quick first step and has a great understanding for the game and high IQ for his age.  He has a high motor and is always in attack mode and never takes any plays off.  

Defensively he is just as good as on the offensive end.  He takes pride in taking on the best player on the opposing end and shutting him down.  He has good instincts on ball and is constantly picking the pockets of guards who put the ball in front of him.  He also plays the passing lanes very well and gets a lot of steals that lead to easy transition buckets for his team.  He rebounds the ball well for his size and has great fundamentals in terms of boxing out.  He sets the tone for his team and is the ultimate leader on the floor as well as in the classroom.  He has put himself in position to be a highly sought-after prospect and uses each day to add a new piece to his game.

His play on the court this past travel season for the talented UTS Elite showed his skillset against some of the best travel teams in the country.  Division 1 programs have begun to take notice and have made him someone that they will be playing close attention over the next 6 months as he continues to improve on the court and excel in the classroom.
