Arizona Preps Q&A: Robert Davis

by Chris Monter | Posted on Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

NBA scout and draft expert for many years, Chris Monter (Monter Draft News) has joined the Arizona Preps' staff, and recently hit the road on behalf of Arizona Preps to cover some of Arizona's top prospects. In the process, Monter covered and featured the Arizona travel programs in participation - interviewing their top prospects and evaluating their play during the competition.

Robert Diaz, a 6-foot-1 senior guard, shined as a member of Team Harden 17-and-under AAU program this spring and summer. Diaz played at San Juan Capistrano (CA) Jserra Catholic High School, where they lost to Capistrano Valley, 57-50, in the playoffs. Arizona Preps recently caught up with Diaz to learn more about his summer play and college recruitment.   

Arizona Preps: How pleased are you with how well you played this spring and summer? 

Robert Diaz: I’m pretty content with how I’m playing. I think I could be doing better, but I’m pretty content.

Arizona Preps: What schools are you hearing from right now in terms of your recruitment?

Robert Diaz: I have no clue. I don’t think that I have any.   

Arizona Preps: I was reading an article about you and was impressed that you are righty, but you play basketball left-handed. How much do you think that helps you as a player? 

Robert Diaz: It helps a lot, because most people are right-handed. I just like being different. 

Arizona Preps: What things are you really focused on to try to continue to improve yourself as a player? 

Robert Diaz: My ball-handling and my decision-making and my defense, for sure. 

Arizona Preps: What would it mean to play Division-I basketball? 

Robert Diaz: It would mean a lot. That’s what I’ve been trying to do this whole time. That is the only reason why I am playing basketball, to get there. 

Arizona Preps: Has it made it tough the last year with COVID that coaches couldn’t come watch you play? 

Robert Diaz: I’ve just been working out and still playing. It don’t really change anything I’m doing.
