Auguste is a long and athletic forward who has started to turn raw potential into more consistent production within the last year. The latest in a long line of skilled big men to come through the Mass Rivals AAU program, he was groomed by coach Vin Pastore to follow in the footsteps of guys like Michigan's Evan Smotrycz and Wake Forest's Carson Desrosiers, who were big but nonetheless extremely skilled on the perimeter.
With that foundation already in place, Auguste arrived at the New Hampton School and began to add a low-post game under the tutelage of head coach Pete Hutchins, incorporating a jump hook into his arsenal and gaining valuable experience playing under the boards in arguably the most talent-laden league in the country.
Now, while he's still far from a finished product, Auguste shows signs of being a true mismatch forward, equally capable of scoring and rebounding in the paint as he is shooting or driving off pick-and-pop action on the perimeter.
And when you're his size and capable of doing all of those things, coaches are only all too happy to wake up early to see you work out.
