Guy, a 6'2 guard, is a highly versatile talent who can play both on and off the ball. Guy is a stellar shooter who drops shots with both range and accuracy.

Guy saw his recruiting stock explode nationally this past spring and summer on the travel team circuit with Indiana Elite where he played up with the 17U team.
