2022 Prospect Spotlight: Nathaniel Knight

by George Courtney | Posted on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Success can blossom and thrive from determination, motivation and hard work. A great example of this type of success story is AZ Compass Prep’s 6-foot-6 rising junior Nathaniel Knight. Nathaniel has hit huge growth spurt physically, and has really developed his basketball skills over the past few years.

I first saw him as a middle-schooler who did not get a lot of minutes on his middle school team. Nathaniel observed his older brother have success, which ignited an addiction to improve his game.

Knight is a 6-6 wing prospect who is coming off of a successful sophomore campaign, where he averaged 17 points and 13 rebounds per/game. He also averaged 2 blocks per/contest. Nathaniel has attained huge growth in his development thanks to his trainers, legendary Central Arizona skills trainer Chris Hurst and New York AAU coaching legend Paul Suber. He improved his athleticism, ball handling, vertical leap, jump-shot and finishing ability.

Scouts and our Arizona Preps' staff observed him in action at last winter’s Pathway New Year’s Invitational Tournament in Maricopa, AZ. Nathaniel led his team to the semi-finals with a phenomenal performance. He stood out with his ability to attack the rim, leaping ability, raw athleticism, mid-range jumper, perimeter shot and long-range shooting.

His best attribute is his aggressive willingness to attack the rim. He is not afraid to slam-n-jam in traffic, which intimidates defenders.

We are excited to see the progress of this prospect moving into the fall.
