2016 Player rankings refresh: No. 5, Thon Maker

Thon Maker (adidas)
Thon Maker (adidas)

Height: 7’-0”

Weight: 220

Wingspan: 7′-2″

Position: PF

High School (State): Athlete Institute (CAN)

Club Team (Affiliation): Canada Elite (Under Armour)

Our Take: It remains to be seen if and when Maker will be seen at the college level as he’s had a penchant for moving between high schools and AAU teams, but as a skilled big man who can contribute inside or outside on the offensive end, Maker has few peers in the 2016 class. Early comparisons to Kevin Durant are mostly folly, but notwithstanding artificially inflated expectations, Maker has shown to be a long, lanky prospect who realistically only has upside that few others match nationally. With a unique combination of size and versatility, Maker is an elite player with plenty of potential.
