  • Paolo Banchero sets five official visits

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Paolo Banchero, the 6-foot-10 Class of 2021 forward from O’Dea (WA) and Seattle Rotary, has set five official visits.

    Banchero will visit North Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, Tennessee and Gonzaga between late September and mid-January.

    Banchero won MVP honors at the NBA Top 100 Camp in June and has proven himself to be one of the most skilled and versatile forwards in the country, regardless of class. He lists Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons, and Blake Griffin as pros whom he emulates.

    “I’m kind a stretch, do-it-all ‘4’, and I can play the ‘3’ too,” Banchero said of his unique game. “I can kind of do whatever, play on the wing or play inside, but if it was up to me I would prefer kind of in the midrange, 16-17 feet out, and just kind of operate from there.”
