Increase his handles
Improve his shooting mechanics
more off-the ball game like coming off screens.
He doesn't look very dominant vs those guys.
Just an example, Jordan Farmar looked dominant when he used to play for Taft and he was going up against tougher competition than your cuz game in game out.
Your cuz looks pretty good but not near dominant, like Jordan Farmar and other top recruits look like playing in highschool.
Maybe that's unfair because Farmar was a high school All American, but your cousin does not stand out compared to other high school ballers I've seen. Rose and Farmar and other top highschool PG prospects used to just murderously dunk on 6'8+ dudes at high school level and blow by people with pure athleticism, not even having to cross them up or anything.
Nothing about your cousin's game right now makes me think "wow, this guy is going to the next level."
He is not blowing by people with insane quickness, he isn't destroying kids off the dribble, his shot has poor mechanics, and he does not have amazing power or hops for a guy his size.
What would you say his strengths are?
