Another performance that deserves mention from the Virginia event was that of PF Craig Victor (New Orleans/St. Augustine), the No. 31 overall player in the rising senior class. His success at the loaded event shouldn’t come as a surprise as Victor is one of the nation’s more sought-after posts thanks to his skills up front.
No. 31 rising senior Craig Victor holds offers from UK, LSU and Ohio State, among others.
“I am best at making plays and defending the ball,” said Victor. “I have a good motor and I am a leader. [But] I still need to work on my ballhandling and make my jumper from 3 more consistent.”
Victor is drawing significant attention from a host of college hoops blue bloods, with the likes of Ohio State, Kentucky, LSU, Arizona and Oklahoma State among his bevy of offers.
Victor is a combination forward who goes about 6-foot-8 and 220 pounds. He is a strong, physical presence and is constantly in attack mode. Victor finishes with power on the break and makes plays off the bounce from the low wing and along the baseline. He has a nice midrange jumper from the short corners, attacks the offensive glass with urgency and is an impressive passer from the post. Victor also competes on the defensive end and can defend both forward positions with his size, strength, basketball IQ and competitiveness.
One of Victor’s biggest assets is that he affects the game in a number of ways, regardless of the competition. He’s a guy that college coaches can depend on to produce on both ends of the floor and contribute winning plays with consistency.
