The Blue Collar Sentinel: The Total Package Destroyer

Luke Shure @luke_shure , 6'7 , 175, c/o 24 of Union Christian Academy,AR is an extremely versatile wing that can flat out go. This explosive young stud can be a fierce triple threat scoring option with a consistent scorer while remaining efficient leader. Luke has a beautiful touch from outside but he can be a punisher off the bounce and on the offensive glass with putbacks. Luke doesn't force bad shots ever and with a high IQ makes the right plays to impact every game he is in. Luke can literally play 1-5 because of his great length, athleticism and speed. The total package. Solid ball handler and great court vision and reads the defense quickly and easily makes adjustments in a flash. Luke finds and exploits weakness and mismatches so well you almost wonder , how does he do that. He is a highly skilled lockdown defender to boot. Loves the challenge of locking up the best player on the floor. With those long arms and nice lateral speed he is a problem when you are his target. Luke thrives in tough matchup and pressure moments. Kid is clutch. His intangibles are off the chart. A coach's dream right here .

Last season Luke averaged 13 points, 9 rebounds,3 blocks and 4 assists per game. In the AAU session was more of a 3 and D player as that was the role the team needed. His favorite AAU highlight was playing in the UA Rise championship in Atlanta where he shot 43% from downtown. Luke's biggest improvements were learning to play at a faster pace,his ball handling skill, pushing the ball in transition, pressure defense the whole game, and being that guy in the clutch moments at the end of big games with the ball in his hands to make things happen to get that win. Luke's goal for the upcoming season is to lead his team to a conference championship.. With the bitter memory of falling short in the finals last year , Luke feels the job ain't done till they take that crown and propelling his team to a deep tournament run with hopes of ending his high school career on top going out with a bang.

What coaches should know is that Luke is gonna bring energy , grit and toughness every single minute. Never takes one play off. His high basketball IQ can fuel any team and will be an instant impact from day one.His offensive skill set wil, open up any defensive strategy being a trust dog on the defensive side in his own rite. . A trusted leader and an extension of the coach and the floor to facilitate with perfection getting his teammates great opportunities. Luke is going to punish defenders at will .You can put him anywhere on the cort and he will find gaps and seams consistently.. He is a difference maker. My assessment is Luke is a pure mid major to low D1 talent and a steal for any other division level. But most important to Luke is the fit and the culture despite the division level. Here is the consistency to compare . This season Luke is averaging 16 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1.3 blocks.
