LEBANON, Tenn., – With high school season around the corner, many players are looking for a last tune up to prepare for the long season ahead. The CoachHemi.com Fall Workout provided the highest level of skill training possible led by Christian Simmons and a team of experienced trainers. The one day workout also provided the players on hand an exclusive inside exposure opportunity provided by The SUV TV, which captured the entire event. Here is another look at the prospects from the event.
Keishawn Davidson (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Oakland MS – 2019
It takes a special combination of skill and poise to be the youngest player in the gym and to make a positive impression. That is exactly what the 5-foot-6 point guard did last weekend at the Fall Workout. He took instruction with ease and executed as well as many of the older players in the gym. In game play he converted that skill work into good decision making and proved to be a capable handler. He will be a player that we will watch grow for years to come in the Middle Tennessee area.
Jordan Jeffries (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Blackman HS – 2015
The 6-1 wing impressed trainers and evaluators alike with his athleticism and his ability to elevate. Although not one of the tallest players who will ever step out on the court, Jeffries is the type of player who will rebound well from his position. That type of explosiveness also translates to the defensive end as he projects to be a player who can defend multiple perimeter positions on the court. He showed flashes of being able to turn the corner on the offensive end, especially by being able to put the ball on the deck. If he can iron out his jumper, he could help Blackman make a run for another state title on both ends of the floor. Watch his interview with Marques Burnett of the SUV TV here: Jeffries
Taylor Vanderbilt (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Smyrna HS – 2015
Vanderbilt is a left-handed lead guard from the Middle Tennessee area. Although the 5-10 guard may have lacked the length that other guards on the court had on this day, he made up for with a strength and explosiveness on both ends of the court. Vanderbilt is very good with the ball in his hands and showed aggressiveness to attack the lane and make plays off of the drive. He also showed a smooth release on his jump shot off of the catch off of the bounce. Look for him to make noise in District 7-AAA this season for the Bulldogs of Smyrna.
