ESPN Player Evaluations

Raatz Fence-Jan 11: DuPont Manual coach Stacy Pendleton says Kayla Styles is "only back to about 80 percent" from an injury, but the 6-1 forward is beginning to show flashes of the play that caught everybody's eye during her freshman campaign. Long, lean and athletic, she has the ability to run the floor with the guards as well as go inside and navigate among the bigs. Her play is effective around the rim and off the drive from the elbow. She can get off the floor with an explosive vertical, which helped her haul down 11 rebounds, including five offensive, against a talented Marion County team. There are times she still seems to be taking what the defense gives her rather than looking to create her own looks, but the ability to finish is there once she finds her attack. Her lean build isn't going to make her a physical presence on defense, but her anticipation, wingspan and agility give her the potential to be a lethal stopper, particularly in pressing and trapping situations. (Lewis)

Classic in the Country-Jan. 11: Played very limited minutes but showed flashes of the potential that was very obvious in the past. Keep watching. (Lewis)

USJN Chicago-Sept. 10: There is so much potential and attributes to love about Styles. Wing athleticism, forward length, the ability to run the floor in transition and the opportunity to pose mismatches all over the court. In this setting she had stretches of games where she simply looked disinterested and content running from 3-point line to 3-point line. We've seen better

Battle in the Boro-July 10: Size and skills combine with elite athleticism to make this 6-0 one of the most promising prospects in the 2013 class. Explosive with the ball and can be a factor on the perimeter and in the paint. Plays an aggressive game in creating both shots and passes with advanced individual skills. Finishes well with a floater and in traffic and can get to the line multiple times a game. A force on the boards from the wing and quick and physical defender. (Lewis)

USJN Midwest-July 10: As a rising sophomore, the 6-2 Louisville, Ky., native already has a physique that is ready for the college game. Besides possessing unbelievable natural athletic ability, she has great body control and soft hands which allow her to dominate on the offensive and defensive glass. Her offensive arsenal includes the ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the basket with minimal dribbling from the wing and from the low post she has very nice jump hook shot. Styles doesn't shy away from contact in the paint and has enough lateral quickness and length to effectively defend the perimeter. With offers already from Louisville, Purdue and the University of Kentucky you can expect to her name mentioned among the top wing players in the 2013 class. (Bodine)
