Class 2014 Player Profile: Jahyde Gardiner

Name: Jahyde Gardiner

AAU Team: Philly Aztecs

Position: Forward

Height: 6’3

Strengths: Gardiner wingspan allows him to be an efficient rebounder, shot blocker and inside scorer. He reminds of Joe Smith during his glory at University of Maryland. Jahyde also experiments with putting the rock on the floor and attacking from the wing. He has a chance to be a special prospect.

Areas Of Improvement: Gardiner will definitely need a few trips to the weight room to get stronger. Also to become a top flight prospect Gardiner will need to continue working on his ball handling and outside shot. He will be a good catch for any high school coach out there.
