3D Empire came into the NY2LA Sports Association this year a bit of an unknown group in the Midwest, being a newer program coming out of Texas. They left the Association this past summer with a lot of respect from teams in the area and in the league with the way they competed and the talent that was evident from a number of the players in the program. One of the top players in that program that really helped set a tone for his team game in and game out was 2020 point guard prospect, Baylor Hebb (Colleyville Heritage H.S. – Grapevine, TX).  Hebb is a major competitor and after a very strong AAU season, he has started to heat up with scouts among low-to-mid major Division I programs.

Hebb had some monstrous games in various tournaments/events during the grassroots season this year, including a big time 30+ point effort in the NY2LA Invitational, and 43 point outburst against Cooz Elite in the July GASO. His season at Colleyville Heritage has kicked off and Hebb has his eyes set on a couple big accomplishments, which include “getting first in District and earning First-Team All District,” the emerging Junior guard commented.

Hebb plays with a lot of heart, toughness and grit. His energy defensively proved infectious playing with 3D Empire. Beyond the effort, Hebb is now roughly 6’2” and 165-pounds, and has a nice skill set to mix in offensively. He can take defenders outside and knock down three’s without hesitation, or he can go off the dribble and drive strong to the hoop with some good quickness and burst. Hebb is outstanding in transition and made several plays both passing and scoring in that aspect of the game throughout the spring and summer. “I think my strengths are being able to score and to create for my teammates,” Hebb explained. He also mentioned really focusing on the physical aspect of the game now to improve himself, wanting to continue getting stronger to compete at the next level.

Hebb uses the doubters and those that have slept on him thus far as motivation to keep taking his game to higher places, but he is enjoying and honored to be getting the interest he is receiving from colleges already. He currently has interest from schools like Colorado State, UT-Arlington (UTA), UC-Irvine, Oral Roberts, Sam Houston State, New Hampshire, and Cal State-Fullerton. He has received an offer already from Abilene Christian. Furthermore, the 6’2” standout has taken visits to Abilene Christian (official) and Sam Houston State (unofficial). He had the following to say about each of those visits:

Abilene Christian: “I loved the atmosphere and how their program moved up from D2 about 5 years ago and how they keep getting better and better every season.”

Sam Houston State: “I liked their winning mentality and the success they have had.”

Hebb has another two full seasons of high school ball left and a whole AAU season left to continue to elevate his game and for more college basketball programs to get on board recruiting a guard who plays with a ton of toughness and competes non-stop, while also having the skill to make opponents pay for underestimating him.
