Murfreesboro, Tenn. – The CoachHemi.com Showcase provided a great opportunity for over 40 local players get exposure to a national scouting service and multiple local schools. Players worked within skill sessions and competed on live-streamed games. Several players improved their games and gained college interest in early March. Here is a look back at a few of the top performers that competed at the showcase.
2014 CoachHemi.com Showcase Recap Part II
Jy’lan Washington (Smyrna, Tenn.), Stewarts Creek HS – 2015
Of all the players at the camp, Washington is the player who showed the most amount of upside in the future. The 6-foot-7 forward is a player who has the ability to affect the games on both ends of the floor. His ability to alter shots on the defense makes him a player who can anchor the lane for his team. On the offensive side of the ball he is player who can finish plays above the rim. However, he has the athletic ability to eventually blossom into a swing forward that can play both facing the basket as well as in the lane. Look for Washington’s game to blossom as he heads into his senior season.
Montrael Nabors (Lafayette, Miss.), Lafayette HS – 2014
Nabors is an athletic point guard who specializes in making plays. The 6-1 guard showed his ability to create with the dribble to gain scoring opportunities for him and others during the March showcase. After a year of physical development Nabors will be able to absorb contact from defenders while also being to impose his will on the drive to the bucket. Long-term Nabors is a lead guard who can be a floor general while also being a legitimate scoring threat on the floor. He most recently visited East Mississippi Community College while also garnering interest from Walters State since competing at the showcase.
Spencer Garner (Scottsboro, Ala.), Scottsboro HS – 2015
There is always room for player like Garner on the floor. The 6-3 wing is a player who can be productive without touching the ball. He is a blue-collar player who sets screens and plays tough on the defensive end. However, he is very efficient when he does have the ball in his hands. He shoots a high percentage from the field both off of the catch and the dribble. His length and skill combined make him a prospect that will make an impact at the next level. He has already gained the interest of a variety of schools regionally after having a great junior season. Look for him to continue this success into the spring and summer months.
