The Eurobasket U18 tournaments for Men have been completed and we have seen some very well-established players really take the stage at both A division. But this storyline will read a bit differently.
Thanks to the endless support of InStat Sports we wanted to take a look at a budding talent that over the 21-22 season played above 50 games including both NT U18 level as well as in Germany at NBBL and Pro B level for Ratiopharm Ulm’s Orange Academy as well as their talent team.
Tobias Jensen, this kid a 6’6 talent originally from Denmark really has a special skill set. Coming from a small basketball nation that is eventually going to keep growing with every season.
One of his coaches Alex Arias from the U18 Denmark NT program had the following to say about him:
” Tobias is one of the best talents I’ve ever seen.
With his size is able to do things that is not easy.
Specially his mobility in defense against small PG.
Pick&roll abilities and the way he is able to create his own shots.
I see him a lot of things that Lamelo Ball did when he was young.
His work ethic is amazing, great leader, first showing up for practice and last leaving the facilities.
Also his family is really into Basketball and the way they educate him is really good. “
