“For me, recruiting has been a great process,” Affolter said. “I know what I’m looking for. I want to get to know the coaches, and I like the coaches who really try to get to know you. It’s about building a relationship.”


Strong, sturdy perimeter player with a great stroke…Big and strong enough to battle inside against similar sized players…Reads the game well and has a good feel…Lateral speed needs work…Stat sheet stuffer.
