Skylar White - 6'7 F - NMH

Northfild Mount Hermon
Class of 2013
Hometown: New York, NY

September 26, 2011 - From Hoop Group NE Report - "Highly skilled 6'7 wide-body from New York who mixes it up with an attitude in the paint.  Gorgeous shooting stroke with range out near the NBA three point line.  Gets out and fills the lane hard on the break...finished with several thunderous two hand crushes over the course of the weekend.  Handles the ball well and showed the ability to bust out with a rebound and lead the break, where he can create or take it down the teeth of the of th court and pull up over a retreating defense for a foul line kiss.  White's post-game is old school...he'll look to power up and get defenders on his hip before transitioning to his ambidextrous jump hook game in the lane.  Then he'll counter with a Dirk Nowitzki-style fade-away off one foot.  Defensively, White eats up space in the paint challenges shot attempts above the rim.  With his blue collar style in the lane, White got into scuffles all weekend, frustrating opponents into losing their composure and then calmly standing his ground as they threw tantrums.  White never lost his cool...these are the the type of scuffles that coaches like to see.  As a long as a player keeps his head, there's nothing wrong with pursuing a little confrontation out on the floor.  Pencil in White as a typical Ivy League plus prospect for NMH."
