Scouting Report on Isaac Traudt

There is a lot to like about 2022 Isaac Traudt’s game. He’s a rangy 6’8″ small forward that can run the floor, finish at the rim and hit the 3-point consistently. He also boasts a 4.0 GPA. We breakdown his game…

Height: 6’8”
Class: 2022
Position: SF
GPA: 4.0
AAU Team: Lincoln Supreme
High School: Grand Island (NE)
Stats (sophomore year): 17ppg, 6rpg, 2apg, 48% from FG, 38% from 3pt FG.

Strengths: Isaac is an interesting prospect. His height and length with his ability to shoot NBA-range three-pointers will lure in the coaches. We don’t have actual measurements on his wingspan but it has to be 7’+. He was forced into more of a ball-handlers roll this high school season which has done wonders for his overall recruiting stock. A 6’8″ wing/forward that now can break a defender down on the dribble is intriguing. Isaac does a great job of going North-South end-to-end and has soft hands to be efficient on the break…he gets a lot of points in transition this way. Isaac is an above-average shooter on the dribble or pass. He is extremely crafty at getting his shot off and in the same shooting form from his shoulders-upward while his body and feet aren’t always in the right position. It’s tough for defenders to adjust to that given his length. His ability to finish at the rim with either hand is high level, given the fact that he does it in a variety of ways: absorbing contact and finishing, up-and-unders, dunking, and more. He does all this equally well going both ways. He is a good rim protector on the defensive end and rebounds well in his space.

Improvement Opportunity: He is a bit raw but his development should improve with more skill work and agility training. He has the handles and footwork in place…it is taking it to the next level that will see his stock continue to rise. He has a slender frame that works fine for a smaller class in Nebraska, so he’ll need to add some muscle to defend in the paint at the next level. He has a high basketball IQ… so things like offensive moves with the ball, passing to the low post, and seeing the floor more like a guard should come with more work.

Projection: High Major with improved development

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
