One of the elite prospects in Arizona and America's 2020 Class of prospects is Bella Vista Prep's 6-foot-7, 195-pound rising senior wing Addison Patterson. Fresh off helping lead his program to a national title on the Grind Session this past season, Patterson is now tearing it up on the Nike EYBL Circuit while playing for the heavily-Nike sponsored Team Why Not.
A native of Canada, Patterson moved to the state of Arizona last summer to attend Bella Vista, and it was a major get for the Scottsdale-based program. Patterson is a superb talent that is well beyond his years in his play. A skilled 2/3 prospect that also is capable of playing the point position as well, as needed. He seems to do everything well, as he is an excellent shooter of the basketball with range on his shot, and also has a very good mid-range game - a lost art form.
He is a very good ball handler and passer that sees the floor very well, and is capable of making players around him better - something he should develop a great deal over the next year. He is deceivingly athletic as well, which is a very nice attribute. An active and good rebounder for his size, and a strong finisher at the basket and in the lane. This young man has it all, and looks to be a serious national prospect in America's 2020 Class.
Here is a highlight video of Patterson, while playing for Team Why Not on the Nike EYBL Circuit.
