Dysart High School's talented and gifted 6-foot-9 senior post Mikel Beyers is a nice talent for the future. This week, Beyers decided to sign with Mesa Junior College - looking to develop as a player and raise his college recruitment in hopes of landing a four-year scholarship for the future.
This week, after looking over numerous opportunities at other junior colleges, Beyers decided to sign with Mesa Junior College.
Beyers was an underrated prospect in big-time proportions as a senior, and is coming off a stellar senior season for Dysart High School. This past high school season, Beyers put up terrific numbers - averaging 17.2 points and 11.7 rebounds per/game. He also shot 82% from the free-throw line on the season, while leading Dysart to a 18-8 record on the season.
We caught our first glimpse of Beyers in this year's recent Arizona Spring Showcase, organized by tournament director Chad Groth. I came away very impressed with this young man's ability and potential for the future.
Beyers is definitely among the elite overall prospects in the state's 2017 Class, although he went almost unnoticed this high school season. While still a sleeper prospect, this young man should blossom in the future.
Congratulations to Beyers on his signing. He is definitely one prospect that college coaches should keep a close eye on for the future.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Beyers is a serious talent with excellent length of body and a nice overall skillset. He has excellent potential as a player, as he is long and rangy, and has a very good ability to shoot the basketball with unlimited range on his shot. While his length and size suggests that he is a post player, Beyers enjoys playing on the perimeter and in the open floor, where he is able to make plays with the basketball in his hands, and also finish plays well above the rim. He is a good ball handler and passer for his size, that likes to advance the basketball up the floor, and also runs the floor like a guard. Beyers is also a good and active rebounder that rebounds outside of his area on the floor. He is a solid defender but needs more focus in this area to maximize his potential. An excellent shotblocker with very good timing. Solid lateral quickness. He still needs to mature physically and get a body, but once he does, watch out. Beyers is a big-time talent with a very bright future.
