Shaqquan Aaron is the Metro League Player of the Year

Aaron plays at Rainer Beach High, the same school that another former Cardinal Terrence Williams went to. The 6’7″ wing is averaging over 21 points per game and helping his team to a 22-0 record. Williams also averaged 21 points per game his senior year.
A player with a very high ceiling, Aaron is a tall wing with very good length and athleticism. He handles and passes the ball very well, and in the open court those two areas of his game stand out. Aaron’s handle and athleticism help him create his own shot. He’s an improving three-point shooter, although his shot is an area of his game he’ll have to keep improving. Aaron also needs to get stronger and focus on the defensive end.
I wrote a piece earlier this week after his 27 point night, about how he is exactly what Louisville needs next season. Read Story Here.
