AAU Team: Team Takeover
High School Team: Dematha High School
Strengths: Timberlake is a legit 6’6 point guard with incredible versatility. His brawny physique renders him an impossible guard when getting down hill where he uses his body to bully defenders and finish with contact. He passes well out of the screen and roll using his size to see over defenders and length to execute solid passes. On defense, he is equally imposing due to his strength and athleticism.
Improvement Opportunity: Shooting is Timerblake’s primary Achilles heel. It is difficult to determine if he lacks the ability to knock down the jumper consistently because he takes so few jumpers, which sometimes leads to over penetration.
Projection: He picked up offers from UNC and Vanderbilt during his most recent performance at Dematha’s summer league. Expect more high major colleges to come calling.
