VIDEO: Andrew Nembhard – Best 2019 PG in North America?
On the Canadian side, Andrew Nembhard is the clear cut best point guard, regardless of class.
But what about the bigger picture? The Vaughan, Ontario product could be the top PG in North America–on the U.S scene, Nembhard is still relatively an unknown…but not for long.
On the Nike EYBL circuit, in the first session he showed a full package against elite competition and against other guards that have speed, athleticism, grit and length. There weren’t any guards that were able to contain him. He and fellow 2019 stud Rowan Barrett Jr lead UPlay 16U to a 4-1 record after the first NCAA live period of 2016.
NCAA champs Villanova had coaching staff in the gym taking in the show. There will be several other major NCAA programs that will not only take notice, but pull the trigger with an offer in the near future.
Nembhard is playing up in age group and is handling his business in ways well beyond his years. College coaches will be intrigued by his pin point passing and ability to control the floor as he never gets sped up.
He’s going to see his name blow up in the next few months yet this will not phase him in terms of getting big headed and egotistical. Nembhard displays a humility that is rare for someone that is such a dangerous piece on the floor. His demeanour and approach to the game and his peers will remain the same. The maturity level and game preparation further sets him apart.
National team pedigree, Jordan Brand Classic selection, AAU stud and high school leader at Vaughan.
