Max Hrdlick has flown under the radar for the majority of his first 3 high school seasons, but he is starting to create some buzz around his name and was just rewarded with his first offer yesterday as North Florida pulled the trigger after Osprey Head Coach Matt Driscoll spoke with him last night. Hrdlicka is right around 6’6″ with legitimate perimeter skills and impressive athleticism. It seems like he may not even recognize his true ceiling just yet. Hrdlicka has not been exposed to high-level travel basketball, but he will be joining the Atlanta Timberwolves this summer, which is sure to help both his recruitment and development. Coaches are marking his name down heading into the summer and for good reason. Given his shooting ability, skill with the ball, and ability to play above the rim, expect a handful of other Division 1 programs to jump into his recruitment over the next few months.

Start by recapping your junior season- How did things go overall and how do you feel like you performed individually this year?
“I think things went well individually for me this season but we didn’t perform well as a team. I think it’s partly because we’re young and next year we’ll have the same team and be much better.
You don’t always get talked about a lot down in Brunswick, but you’re coming up to play with an Atlanta-based team this travel season. How do you think you’ll benefit from playing with the Timberwolves this summer? Why is their team a good fit for you?
“I think playing with the Atlanta Timberwolves will help me get more exposure and they’re a good fit for me because they emphasize team basketball and the coaching helps me a lot.”
What are you hoping to show college coaches this summer that will make them want to recruit you? What are your best traits that make you a good college prospect?
“I think something I can show college coaches this summer is that I’m a versatile player that can play multiple positions, and I have good court vision and can shoot the ball well. I think a main thing I can improve on is getting stronger.”
