Kadyn Betts of Pueblo County in Colorado has been quietly flying under the radar in the class of 2023, but recently he has cemented himself as one of the top players in the state.  The 6’7 playmaker is a nightmare matchup for defenses that have to prepare for him.  It seems that each game that he plays, he is improving in a new area of his game.  His work ethic along with hard work in the classroom are just a few of the reasons why he is just scratching the ceiling in terms of potential. 
He possesses a unique ability to consistently make plays on the court.  Whether it is coming off screens and hitting mid-range jump shots or putting the ball on the floor and blowing by defenders, he seems to always know when it’s time to make something happen.  His biggest area of improvement that he has made so far is consistently making open long-range shots.  If he continues to improve in this area, he could end having one of the purest strokes in all of Colorado.  His length and confidence give him the ability to get his shot off against most defenders his age.  His ball handling skills are still improving but he does possess the skill set to put the ball on the floor with either hand or drive to the basket.  He is always in attack mode and on the offensive end of the floor he is as polished of a recruit that you will find out there.

Defensively he plays the passing lanes very well in terms of getting steals and causing deflections.  He is sound on the ball and can keep his opponents in front on him.  He will need to add some bulk but currently is tough enough to play in post situations against players who may physically be stronger as of now.  He can guard multiple positions on the floor and is great in situations where he must switch off and play against smaller guards.  He is also a very sound rebounder who understands positioning and boxing out and can start the transition break and create opportunities for his teammates.  His play this past summer has drawn attention from Division one programs that want to get in early and land his commitment.
He currently holds offers from the likes of Northern Colorado, Colorado St, Montana St, Akron and Nebraska-Omaha.  We fully expect for this list to continue to grow over the next 12 months as he heads into the high school season and travel ball season next spring.
