AAU Team: Louisiana Elite
High School Team: Huntington Prep
Strengths: Brakefield is a versatile lefty who can do a little bit of everything. He has a soft touch in the paint and finishes well with either hand. He runs the court well making him an open target for lobs on the fast break. Equally impressive is his aggressive play on defense where he chases down defenders and times the weak side help very well for blocks. His length and athleticism also allow him to guard multiple positions.
Improvement Opportunity: He could improve his half court dribble drive moves to create more scoring opportunities for himself. He could also improve his passing ability.
Projection: Brakefield is already one of the top 20 players in his class and schools are taking notice. He has Kansas, LSU, Oregon and a ton of other major offers on the table.
