Body and athleticism
Combo guard with good college body for his position standing at 6-4 to go along with a 6-7.5 wingspan. Possesses a nice blend of speed and quickness which he showcases on both ends of the court. Uses his body well to create separation or finishes through contact. Lately he’s been putting a lot of work in the weight room to add muscle and strength to his frame. Increasing his body strength would help him to improve his efficiency driving down the hoop at the next level. Seems to have high motor.
Can shoot at all three levels, but more importantly he is not afraid of taking responsibility when it counts. Can create his own shot thanks to his good quickness and ball-handling skills that allow him to create enough space. Has a quick, relatively low release to go along with a good arc and nice range, jumps forward. Has the potential to be a consistent three-point shooter at the next level. Has room to improve his touch around the basket.
Position and offense
Intelligent guard who primarily runs the offense, he can be successfully used at both guard positions thanks to a combination of good off-ball movement and ability to shoot from the perimeter. Sees the court very well, showing very good organizational skills, being a willing and creative passer. Displays nice transition skills, able to speed up the tempo. Capable of changing paces and directions, he is expected to be a shifty and smart driver who knows how to draw fouls. Looks like he might be very effective in pick and roll plays at the next level due to his high level of court intelligence and passing skills.
Defense and rebounding
His +3 wingspan helps Bogac to be very effective on the defensive end of the court, where he comes up often with deflections or chase-down blocks. Has the physical tools (a good lateral quickness and a plus wingspan) to go along with the needed willingness to become a pesky defender at the next stage. Solid and active rebounder for his size and position with anticipation of balls out of his area.
Disciplined player with high basketball IQ and great work ethic. He’s been battle-proved in the USA already, winning the 2018 State Championship in Florida with Barnabas Christian Academy. He graduated in 2019 and this past season he spent in Turkey, playing in a local U21 league. Has received a lot of offers from the elite clubs in Turkey to turn pro, but prefers to go to college.
Low D1 rating but lack of video points him to D2, NAIA or JUCO schools. Turkish 6-foot-4 combo guard Bogac Karatepe looks ready to contribute at any school on Juco to D2 level thanks to a mixture of high basketball IQ and good organizational skills to go along with a nice deal of physical tools for his position and great work ethic. College coaches should take into account his two-year period, playing in high school in the USA in Florida on a strong team, winning the State Championship.
