I enjoy all our events at TBB but the High Academic Camp was something we’ve been wanting to do for years. Well, it happened and I feel it was a success. I took some notes and wanted to share my thoughts from the 20th. And speaking of 20, that’s the percentage the staff believe are D1 prospects that participated at the camp.
- Mitchell Holmes has a chance
-Hasn’t scratched the surface to his potential.
-Long, grows an inch or two every year, can put the ball on the floor in space and jumper has made noticeable strides
- Nick Donnelly showed on-ball skills
-Reputation for more of a catch n shoot but Nick mainly played primary ballhandler role and was effective
- Big fella Mekhi Collins is coming along
-Bouncy, rebounds, runs the floor and we expect Mekhi to have a big senior season with Faith Family
- Speaking of Big fellas, ’22 Caden Powell was impressive
-Has good length, size and is further along skill-wise than initially believed
-Buy stock, the price will grow
- I’m staying with the theme of post players
-’21 Cale Martens is a big man that’s fundamentally sound. Can stretch floor and score off either shoulder.
-Works at it
- Gabe Collins & Jacob Millhouse are available wings to take a look at
-Gabe shot looked smooth off the move, showed confident handle in half-court
-Millhouse is efficient
-Quick on making decisions, can fire it from way deep.
- Love the energy ’21 Jaden Flournoy brings
-Athletic, thrives as a slasher and has no problem mixing it up inside to grab a rebound amongst the bigs.
- Rytis Petraitis!
-Long, plays with motor as his size mix with shooting capabilities makes him a next-level prospect
-Air Force, DBU are making big push. Denver has shown interest.
- 2022 Perimeter player look
-Shooting at a high clip is attractive for any player and when Eli Valentino and making perimeter shots, he gives himself a chance. High IQ guard that can play on and off the ball
-Trey Blackmore can score in bunches.
-Reliable shooter from deep, crafty off the bounce.
-Davion Sykes has made big strides in his development.
-Growth spurt helped, but game has slowed down for him. Still a threat shooting from 3 and now does a better job attacking closeouts.
-Aaron Waggoner was very solid.
-Pass first guard with big-time feel. Thrives getting teammates involved.
- Finley Bizjack was steady
-Attacked in open court
-Possesses quick trigger on jumper which allows him to release off hard closeout
- First look at Hayden Bauer
-Wiry, long wing that is fundamentally stable
-Think there is good upside with him
- Justin Scott
-Has a bigger basketball frame
-Connected on shots from deep at a high clip.
-Could potentially become a D1 basketball player. A lot of room for growth
- Got a good look at Everson Armstrong
-Intriguing wing-guard that scored it in volumes.
-Good perimeter stroke
