There are some players across Michigan that have made statements about their game so far this summer. Zylah Carter is one such athlete. She’s a talented perimeter player that seems primed for a big senior season. Let’s get to know Carter as a player and prospect.
GRASSROOTS / AAU PROGRAM
Attacking the basket – She can get downhill and get the ball to the rim.
Creating space for open shots – Her aggressiveness offensively opens things up. Defenders will sometimes sit back waiting for her to attack, leaving space for her to pop off a jumper. She can also use her handles to give herself space.
Passing / Finding open teammates – She has an instinct for finding open teammates. She plays with her head up and on a swivel.
Talking on both ends of the floor – She’s a vocal leader that does a great job communicating with her teammates.
AREA FOR IMPROVEMENT
Don’t force it – Be a little more patient and let the game come to her. She makes the right plays, just needs to settle in and trust her instincts.
“My goals as of this year is to keep improving on all my weak points in the game, and to be recruited with a full ride scholarship.” – Zylah Carter
WHAT SHE’S LOOKING FOR IN A SCHOOL / PROGRAM AT THE NEXT LEVEL
