Here is the first look at the prospects from the event.

Jay Gibson (Cleveland, Tenn.) – Cleveland HS – 2018

Jay GibsonThe 6-foot-3 combo forward showed his skill and toughness this past weekend. The lefty showed his range on his jumper, which should translate to more scoring opportunities in the future. Gibson, who is well built, appears to have inches left to add to his frame in the future. All of these things add up to him being a prospect that our OTRHoopsReport.com staff will keep close tabs on for years to come.


Marcus Gilbert (Birmingham, Ala.) – Shades Valley HS – 2016

Marcus GilbertGilbert set himself a part at the camp as a ‘do-it-all’ wing. The 6′ guard handled the ball, defended and provided hustle plays on both ends of the floor. It is this type of mentality that will make him a productive player for his Shades Valley squad this year. He showed himself to be capable as well during the skill session portion of camp. He has good spring in his legs that allow him to burst past defenders who get caught leaning the wrong way. Watch his interview with Marques Burnett here: Gilbert

Bryce Williams (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Blackman HS – 2017

Bryce WilliamsOne of the more promising players at the workout was the local 6-2 wing from the Middle Tennessee area. Williams displayed a fine combination of athleticism and skill while working out with our trainers during the skill sessions. While the sophomore guard is currently slotted to play a wing for his current teams, he showed glimpses of possibly turning into a combo-guard long term. Currently Williams is a specialist at putting the ball on the deck, however he showed range on his jumper beyond the arc. If he can fine tune his stroke while adding confidence with his ball handling, he could turn out to be one of the better prospects in the area in his class.
