Roddy Gaymon III is the perfect example of a young athlete always on the grind trying to perfect his craft. Gaymon has been on the middle school hoops scene for almost two years now and is turning heads with his play. He was selected as a top 20 all star at both the MSHTV Showcase and NYAA Camp. He is nationally ranked as one of the best players in his class by multiple organizations including Bballspotlight, NYAA, Coast2coastpreps and Global Grassroots.
This upcoming weekend Gaymon will be participating in the CP3 National Middle School Combine, it is an opportunity he is extremely grateful to receive.
“I am excited to receive instruction from some of the most accomplished basketball minds in the world.” Gaymon said. “Thank you Mr. Chris Paul and the CP3/Jordan brand for the opportunity to compete.”
The 12-year old from Pennsylvania models his game after Boston Celtic point guard Kyrie Irving. Gaymon’s game is built on quickness and ball handling, he is not afraid to go after defenders because he knows nobody is going to steal the ball from him. Gaymon is also always looking to get his teammates involved like a true point guard. His ability to drive into the lane and find the open man is impressive for someone so young; he also has great vision in transition.
Gaymon’s scoring ability isn’t something defenders can just overlook either, his jumper is smooth and can create off the dribble, he can also finish around a crowded rim.
