#TheFutureIsRAWE: Diego Brito

Diego Brito is an absolute leader, in every sense of the word.

The 2026 Montverde Academy point guard has amassed an impressive resume both on and off the court. Diego gets it done in the classroom, boasting a 3.7 GPA coming into this school year with an interest in sports management.

Aside from that, Diego has no issues showing his humanitarian side.

On a family trip to the Dominican Republic, Diego saw the struggles of youth in the area who shared a love of playing sports, but didn’t have shoes to play them in. Moved by the sight, a then-12 year old Diego returned home to clean at least FIFTY pairs of kicks to send off to the country. Everything from flip-flops, to loafers, to Nike Air More Uptempo’s were included in the bunch.

It’s fitting that he included a classic basketball shoe, because his on-court game has begun to flourish over the last couple of years.

This 5-foot-4 righty has been receiving some of the best coaching out there from five-time GEICO National Championship coach Kevin Boyle of Montverde, Byron Lane & his Florida Bayhawks travel squad, and Tim Ryerson of “STUDENTathleteWorld”.

In a 12-game stint at the “Center of Basketball Development” this past year, Diego averaged 14 points, three assists, and three steals. He was invited to the “Dominican National Selection Combine” in New Jersey, as well as this past June’s “Portugal Basketball Festival” for a U-17 team.

Next-level coaches have already started commenting on what type of player Diego is becoming.

“Diego does a great job controlling tempo as a PG,” one college coach stated. “He has a great feel for the game and understands the balance between getting teammates involved, and scoring. He’s a three-level scorer and a willing defender with good instincts and quick hands.”

An overseas coach echoed the same.

“He has an excellent IQ for basketball, great ball-handling in both high and reduced spaces (this is not easy), passing skills, and good shoot technique,” the Spaniard coach said. “He seems to be also smart on defense, and shows a brilliant anticipation capacity.”

Watch out, because between winning the “MVP Eagle Award” for his league at Montverde, being invited to attend camps at Youngstown State & Southeastern University, and training in Dallas with pro-skill developer Gilbert Abraham, Diego is being surrounded with all tools, teachings, and motivation to become a force within his 2026 class.

Look out for the rise, because it’s on the way.
