Cream of The Crop Standouts Part 2

We dive into part two of our recap of the Cream of The Crop Camp. There wasn’t a lack of talent in the building as texasboysbasketball.com projected close to 25 players having a chance to play division 1 basketball. Who led the camp in block shots? There are some talented rising freshmen out in Fort Worth and more as we breakdown our top performers.

Aruna Zuberu, 2022 PF/C: A big with great length and upside. Lead the camp in total blocks as he played the role as a rim protector. Offensively Aruna is coming along and has made strides since the staff has last seen him.

Keyonte George, 2022 CG:  A talented scoring guard that carries elite potential. Has the ability of becoming a national name throughout his high school career once he locks in on a consistent basis.

RJ Jones, 2023 SG: After the first game – where RJ Jones shook off the jitters, he was a productive player for his team. He made shots from deep and is a crafty finisher around the rim.

Rashon Miller, 2022 Wing-Forward: Miller has widened his game as the forward from Plano Senior exceled as a slasher as he finished on a consistent basis through contact.

Jerrale Powers, 2022 SF/PF: Powers is a tough, rugged forward that clocks in and gets the job done. Powers runs the floors, cleans up on the offensive glass and showcased a nice game from 12 ft in.

Jourdyn Grandberry, 2022 SG: Albeit just walking the halls of a high school campus, Jourdyn Grandberry is a “sleeper” as he relentlessly attacked the basket and finished making shots on tough angles. Length, athleticism and skill make him a promising prospect.

Corey Henderson, 2022 Wing: Henderson was a threat in the open court. He embraced contact and put pressure on opposing guards.

Devin Vincent, 2022 SG: A strong guard that punished smaller guards inside and knocked down shots when he was open. Vincent has a nice inside/out package and definitely showed he belonged in the top 20 Game.

Sam Akinelere, 2022 Wing: A powerful, athletic wing-guard that put together a couple of highlight-reel dunks. Akinelere was a handful when he got downhill as he was a top 10 performer in the camp.

A’Doris Semien, 2022 PG: A steady, quick guard that knows how to play. Semien was beating his man off the dribble and finding the open man on drives.

Cam Amboree, 2022 PG: Amboree displayed great range on his jumper and did well in the pick and roll. Can be a very solid player on the defensive end with more effort.

 

Outside the Top 20

Payton Chism, 2023 CG: Chism is a strong, tough guard that hit shots from deep. He committed to the defensive side of the ball and was solid on the glass.

Davion Sykes, 2022 PG: A crafty, savvy guard that is intriguing. Could be a “Late Bloomer” and we will keep our eye on Sykes.
