Below you'll find several standout players who we believe helped their recruitment stock moving forward. Check back next week for more updates.
I love the maturity that Brady plays with; he is always under control and never allows the defense to speed him up. He also does a good job of using pump-fakes and jabs steps to get his defenders off balance.
Bobby plays with a high motor, which allows him to compete against bigger players on the interior for rebounds. He is also very athletic, which can cause trouble for the opposing team as he looks to elevate and finish over the top of you.
Newton played with an extremely high motor, score off the bounce going downhill, and finish plays at the rim. He is also able to make pull-up jumpers and wing 3's constantly.
Combo Guard, who does an outstanding job of running the team but can score from the Point Guard position, can get to the rack and make jumpers, good defensive player, tough competitor, and volume shooter.
An athletic scoring guard who shoots the ball well from behind the arc and gets to the basket off strong straight-line drives.
A combo guard that can create for himself off the dribble with a nice pull up mid-range jumper to go along with floaters in the lane.
Face up 4 man, who uses his body in the post and scores it well on the block, can finish on the rim with loud dunks.
Sneaky athletic guard with big shot-making capabilities doesn't mind rebounding the ball and locking down on the defensive end.
A long wing that excels in catch and shoots or the one-dribble pull up from behind the arc, with athletic ability.
With good size, a very good low post threat showed range by stretching out and draining jumpers on various occasions. A threat to score anywhere on the floor.
Downhill aggressive guard, with a smooth shooting stroke from the mid-range and behind the 3pt line. He can play either guard position but excels as a shooter.
He showed tremendous versatility as he finished in the lane in transition while also going to the post when smaller guards defended him. But I was most impressed with his ability to find and create scoring opportunities for his teammates in transition and the half-court.
Parrish Johnson || Kell || 6'4 CG || C/O 2023
Shot the three-ball very well, went 4/8 (50%), and showed he could also have a nice in-between game with his ability to make certain shots on the pull-up, good handles.
A heady point guard that looks to create opportunities for his teammates. He likes to use his strong frame to keep defenders on his hip while attacking the basket and does an excellent job of getting into his defensive stance to disrupt the other team's offensive flow.
Very crafty guard in the lanes, using a series of ball fakes to keep help-side defenders off-balance after beating his defenders off the bounce. He also is a good shooter from behind the 3pt line; you have to be aware of him at all times.
He played hard every possession on both ends of the floor, he defended multiple positions, but I was most impressed with his ability to get in his stance and guard smaller ball handlers. He also showed some offensive versatility as he knocked down a couple of runners/floaters in the lane, went into the post, and scored with his back to the basket.
Until next time…
