Post Meekness Payne Soaring Late

<div class="themidad">One of the top available prospects in Arizona's 2018 class is AZ Compass Prep's 6-foot-8, 210-pound unsigned senior forward <strong>Meekness Payne</strong>.  Coming off a very good season for his prep program, Payne turned his sights to the NCAA spring evaluation period over two weekends, and played exceptionally well in two different events over the period.</div>
<div></div>
<div>This past weekend, Payne had his best performance of his young career.  While playing for <strong>Alvin Gentry Elite</strong>, the team traveled to Indianapolis to take part in the <strong>Terrific 24</strong> event by <strong>Elevate Hoops</strong>.  In the event, Payne ranked as one of the event's top overall individual performers in the event, as selected by the event's staff.</div>
<div></div>
<div><strong>North Carolina A&T</strong> head coach <strong>Jay Joyner</strong> has expressed serious interest in Payne as of late, and more division-I programs are now beginning to inquire about Payne, as there are few division-I prospects left and even less sure-fire talent still available.</div>
<div class="themidad"></div>
<div class="themidad">While Payne has really developed as a player over the past year, while playing against some of the nation's top talent, his college recruitment has been lackluster for a player of his abilities.  Payne is an athletic combo-forward prospect with a very high motor.  He also has some serious upside for the future with nice potential.</div>
<div class="entry">

Payne is a versatile prospect that is a winner, and does the intangibles for his team to be successful.  He rebounds outside of his area, guards the best frontcourt player on the floor, gives up his body for his team to win and plays much bigger than his size suggests.  I love this young man's attitude on and off the floor as well, and young players can learn a lot from him.

</div>
Payne's best aspect of his game though is that he is an excellent defender that accepts challenges on the defensive end of the floor.  He can guard each of the frontcourt positions on the court, and does not mind defending bigger post players either.

I will continue to follow Payne's recruitment closely and bring you updates as they continue to develop.

<strong>Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: </strong> Payne is a versatile forward prospect that is able to play much bigger than his size suggests.  His athletic frame allows him to play as stretch-4 man, and also defend all three frontcourt positions on the floor.  He is a winner, and does the intangibles for his team to be successful.  He rebounds outside of his area, as a result of his extreme activity on the floor.  He has developed into a combo-forward prospect, and can help a team with his versatility on both ends of the floor.  He is a very good shooter with range, and is an effective three-point shooter.  Payne's best aspect of his game though is that he is an excellent defender that accepts challenges on the defensive end of the floor.  He can guard each of the frontcourt positions on the court, and does not mind defending bigger post players either.  A winner.
