Evolving from a young kid with hoop dreams to one of the most underrated prospects in the class of 2024, his story is one of relentless dedication, unwavering commitment, and a burning desire to leave his mark on the game he loves.

Can you tell us about your journey as a basketball player, and how you’ve evolved over the years to become one of the most underrated prospects in the class of 2024?


I’ve been playing basketball since I was 5 years old, I’ve always wanted to get far with basketball and my main focus has always been improving my skill set, and winning as a team.


With your brother already playing at Maine, how has his experience influenced your own path in basketball, and what lessons have you learned from him?


He 100% has influenced me with wanting to get to that next level and follow with what he has done, he has taught me a lot, like just putting my head down and work as hard as you can, and find different ways to overcome challenges that I may face.


Being a 6’9 power forward, what aspects of your game do you believe set you apart from other players in your position, and how do you continue to refine those skills at Polaris Prep under Ray Kim?


I feel like being able to play inside as well as being able to stretch the floor with my shooting and my passing ability has helped set me apart from other players at my position. I refine my skills at Polaris by getting in the gym with Coach Stef in the morning, and getting a lot of reps in the gym with Coach Ray after school is finished.


As someone who’s been described as “slept on” by many, how do you stay motivated and focused on reaching your goals despite the lack of recognition from some scouts or analysts?


I’ve heard that a lot, but that doesn’t change my mindset about anything, I know what I am capable of, and I believe that things will fall into place if I keep working hard.


Looking ahead, what are your aspirations for your basketball career, both in terms of college basketball and potentially beyond?


I’m looking to get to the next level and help contribute to winning in any way I can once I get there. After that I have to see what options I have. I would love to continue playing as long as I can, and I will continue to look for the right fit for me.


 

And there you have it, folks, the tale of Ewan Steele, the diamond in the rough, the unsung dynamic prospect of Canadian hoops. Despite the naysayers and the doubters, Ewan remains steadfast in his pursuit of greatness. With the guidance of his brother and the mentorship of Coach Ray Kim at Polaris Prep, he continues to refine his skills, hone his craft, and defy the odds.


So, to all you scouts, analysts, and college coaches out there, pay attention! Ewan Steele isn't just a name on a roster, he's a game-changer, a difference-maker, and the future of basketball. Whether it's on the collegiate stage or beyond, this young phenom is destined for greatness, and we can't wait to see him soar to new heights.
