2019 prospect Adriel Linares is a very talented 6-9 185 power forward with great athleticism and underrated all-around game. He plays for Sunnybrook Christian Academy he is an elite defender with great court vision and he is a handful to guard in the open court they call him Bonez. His athleticism has been on full display being known as a powerful dunker forcing some to make business decisions before challenging his rise to the rim. I talked to Linares about his recruitment for stock risers.
