AAU Team: New World
High School Team: Glenelg County
Strengths: Brathwaite is your typical undersized big man with a high motor. He is an athlete with a solid frame. He does not have a ton of offensive skills but his defense and work ethic will keep him on a lot of coach’s radars. He has good court vision and plays the game unselfishly.
Improvement Opportunity: Brathwaite has a lot of room to grow offensively. He needs to develop an elbow jumper to open up the paint where he can do the most damage. He can shoot the ball but does not do so confidently.
Projection: Brathwaite is a solid Division II or III player who never takes a play off. His motor and pursuit of the basketball in the paint make him a project worth developing.
