2021 guard Aryan Arora models game after CJ McCollum

Aryan Arora is a 15-year old combo guard from Tuxedo Park, New York. Arora is a freshman at Dwight-Englewood School, he finished up he first season of high school basketball in which he averaged 17.5 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds per game.

Youth1 first wrote about Arora when he was in 7th grade competing against the likes of Zion Harmon, Ryan Conway and Noah Farrakhan. Arora’s game has matured a lot since then, he compares his game to CJ McCollum of the Portland Trailblazers.

“I like to think of myself as a shooter who can get to the cup and also distribute the ball.” Said Arora.

Arora also looks up to James Harden of the Houston Rockets for similar reasons.

“He’s another player who can break down any defender in front of him and score or get the ball to his teammates.”Arora said.

For the upcoming season Arora wants to work on his physical strength and get his body ready to compete with division I players. He also has visions of winning four straight league championships, a state championship and a Bergen County Jamboree championship.

After high school Arora would like to play his college ball at the University of Miami. Playing division I basketball is something all high school basketball players dream of but is not an easy task. Arora is well aware of this and working on his game seven days a week, whether that is lifting weights or getting shots up in the gym.          

Off the court Arora uses his free time to give back to the community.

“I enjoy volunteering at hospitals and schools, I enjoy giving back and helping others.” Said Arora.  “I also love to help younger kids improve their skills in basketball, seeing the passion they have for the sport is priceless.”

Arora will be playing in multiple Hoop Group tournaments over the summer; it’ll be fun to see how he grows as a player in those crucial first two years of high school.
