Luke Coughran is a name that is getting a lot of buzz in the greater Houston area in terms of elite prospects in the class of 2024. The 6’2 G who plays for Katy Tompkins High School just west of the greater Houston area is a matchup nightmare for defenses who have to face him. It seems that each game this past summer he was able to get a little better in all aspects of his game and he does not seem to be letting up anytime soon. He seems to be just scratching the surface in terms of potential. 
His range starts from the moment he crosses half court. Simply put, if you do not close out properly against him, he will get his shot off with ease. He is one of the most confident players that you will find. His size and frame allow him to play the primary ball handler or switch off the ball. Whether it is coming off screens and hitting jump shots or putting the ball on the floor and blowing by defenders he seems to always know when it is time for him to make a play happen. He has been steadily improving his ball handling and has gotten a lot better in the open court finding teammates for transition buckets. He stays in attack mode when he is off the ball and understands how to get open off screens and create situations for himself to get easy buckets. Overall, offensively for his age he is as polished of a player that you find in the state of Texas and beyond. 

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 of him. He will need to add some bulk to his frame which will come over time and help with defensive rebounding and positioning. He can guard multiple positions on the floor and is great in situations where he must switch off and defend smaller and quicker guards. Although the winter season has yet to get under way, he has already made a name for himself regionally and his stock is going to do nothing but rise once travel ball opens.
