Chet Holmgren performed well at yet another event this AAU season. The class of 2021 big man was one of the toughest prospects to match up against at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. Holmgren’s inside and out game was on full display and was efficient while doing it as he had a 22.8 player efficiency rating. He broke down his game and the latest with his recruitment.
Q: How would you like your game described?
A: “I’d like to be described as a big wing, I like to bang down low, but that’s not all I can do,” he said. “I like to step out, stretch the floor and put the ball on the floor when it’s needed and knock down shots.”
Q: Maryland has done a good job recruiting you so far. Do they compare you to anyone?
A: “Maryland compared me to [Bruno] Fernando, who is going to the draft this year, and a guy on their team they call ‘Sticks’, said Holmgren.
Q: Which schools have made you a priority?
A: “Purdue has made me a priority since the beginning of the sophomore year,” Holmgren said. “Texas, Minnesota, Tennessee and a few others.”
Q: What is it going to take for a school to land you?
A: “I just have to build a great relationship with the coaches and I have to see myself being there for a while,” said Holmgren. “They have to have great facilities, great strength coaches and nutritionists to build my body and things that will bring my game to the next level.”
