Interview with Algevon Eichelberger

27 Jul

It is easy to forget elite players in Michigan’s class of 2016 when they are overshadowed by a top ten nationally ranked player.  However, nobody should ever overlook Saginaw 6’6″ forward Algevon Eichelberger.  Algevon took the state by surprise last year by becoming one of the best shot blockers in Michigan, as a freshman.  Eichelberger has nice footwork and techniques that are unfamiliar for most big men and low post players at such a young age.  He is the definition of a blue collar worker, fighting for rebounds on both sides of the ball until he hears a whistle or has the it.  On the offensive side of the ball, Algevon in AAU has shown soft hands, and improving mobility compared to the high school season.  2-3 more inches in growth would do wonders for Eichelberger and make him a national prospect by the time senior year comes along.
