Kai Sotto meets with Tigers coaches in visit to Auburn University
by RANDOLPH B. LEONGSON
9 HOURS AGO

KAI Sotto made another unofficial visit to a Division I NCAA school.

The 17-year-old center this time soaked in the atmosphere in Auburn University, roaming the Alabama campus with his father Ervin.

The 7-foot-2 Sotto met with coaches Bruce Pearl and Wes Flanigan as the Tigers showed interest in securing a commitment from the UAAP Season 81 Juniors MVP from Ateneo.

Auburn has been in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament for the past two years and reached the Final Four last year.


NBA legend Charles Barkley is the most prominent product of the Tigers, leading the team to their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 1984.


This is Sotto's third school visit after earlier spending time in Kentucky and Georgia Tech. He also had a talk with DePaul coach Dave Leitao late last year.

Sotto is currently training with Atlanta-based The Skills Factory, and is set to play for Mighty Sports in the 2020 Dubai International Basketball Tournament later this month.

Kai Sotto gets reality check as Basketball Without Borders run draws mixed reviews
by RANDOLPH B. LEONGSON
JUST NOW




KAI Sotto's run in the Basketball Without Borders Global Camp this past 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago netted him mixed reviews, with a lot touting his impeccable work ethic while also raising quirks in the 7-foot-2 center's game.

Jonathan Givony, ESPN's draft expert, cited the Filipino prospect as one of the standouts in the camp where the top 64 high school standouts from 34 countries participated.

"Likely the most-hyped prospect to ever come out of the Philippines, Sotto doesn't turn 18 until May but has been on the radar since the FIBA World Cup at the U17 and U19 levels in each of the past two summers. Sotto has generated some buzz in the U.S. after joining a prep school in Atlanta last year," he wrote.

Givony noted that although Sotto was able to turn heads in the drills, he failed to translate those success in the afternoon scrimmages.


"His performance at the BWB camp was somewhat inconsistent, as he looked like one of the most talented prospects in attendance in the morning drills each day but struggled to make his presence felt in the games," he continued.

"Sotto has gotten into better shape since arriving to the U.S. and possesses a versatile skill set for a player his size: scoring in the post with either hand, handling the ball impressively, good court vision and range on a jump shot that extends beyond the three-point line."



Givony furthered: "Sotto didn't look ready for the level of physicality and intensity he encountered in the camp scrimmages, as he was scored on at will by stronger players, looked lethargic getting back on defense and settled for too many low-percentage shots. Sotto did show nice timing rotating for blocks thanks in part to his massive 9-foot-3 standing reach."

Lucky for Sotto, it's still early in his journey as he returns to The Skills Factory in Atlanta to further hone his athletic gifts as he continues to pique the interest of colleges in the United States.

I Agree po..gawing motivation ni Kai ang experience na ‘to para lalo pa niyang palakasin at pagbutihin ang kanyang basketball skills para maabot niya ang kanyang pangarap.

At ang opinion ko naman dun sa above article; ang mga participants sa basketballl without borders ay galing sa ibat-ibang countries na mga all star caliber, kaya expect ang walang chemistry sa paglalaro kasi may kanya-kanyang agenda ang mga young basketball players na gustong magpakitang gilas sa mga nba basketball scouts..kaya sa palagay ko po di rito masusukat kung sablay po ang isang player (in general) sa 3 day basketball camp na 'to...mapabilang lang sa ganitong event ay ibig sabihin may sinasabi ang isang player kasi pangalan ng bansa ang kanilang nire-represent..kung eto'y isang basketball tournament duon natin bigyan ng tamang analysis at judgement.... :-)
