“I feel like I did good. I should have been more aggressive offensively but it was a good learning experience and I’m ready for next year.”
Having viewed Drew extensively this Summer, he’s a face-up post prospect that beats slower defenders off the dribble and runs the floor well in transition. In the paint Timme is able to score with his back to the basket with plus footwork and a nice jumphook over his right shoulder.
“The biggest strengths of my game are my offensive skillset and being able to score and handle the ball anywhere on the court.”
Currently holding offers from offers from the likes Texas A&M, Oklahoma, TCU, Oklahoma State, Creighton, Purdue, SMU, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Illinois, Baylor, Utah State, Kansas State and Gonzaga, Drew is a priority recruit on the national level.
