#OTRHoopsReport – EYBL Saturday standouts – May 26, 2015
CP3 post Harry Giles dominated the competition Saturday at the Nike EYBL Session Four.
Minneapolis, MN. – The Nike EYBL provided the stage for the nation’s top talent to compete against each other. The three day weekend provided many local observers as well as fans from around the nation a glimpse of many top 100 caliber talent. Here is a look at some of the players that took advantage of the stage Saturday.
PJ Washington (Frisco, Texas) – Team Penny – 2017
Washington has continued to improve his offensive game, showcasing his ability to play along the perimeter to stretch the defense. In the high post he attacks the rim and scores easily when he has an angle. Washington can rebound in a crowd on both ends and he also does a good job of using his strength to control low post position.
Jarred Vanderbilt (Houston, Texas) – Houston Hoops -2017
Bouncy is one word that could describe Vanderbilt. He is an active frontline player that has great size and length. He runs the floor like a wing and finishes plays above the rim with ease in transition. Vanderbilt is more comfortable facing the basket where he is a threat to knock down the mid range jumper with time and space.
Raquan Wilkins (Atlanta, Georgia) – Georgia Stars – 2016
At 6-foot-4, this high energy wing took the ball to the basket strong and aggressively which is the strength of his game. Wilkins played a major role in the Georgia Stars win over the City Rocks Saturday afternoon. He was relentless on the defensive end of the floor, forcing turnovers and diving on the floor for loose balls to create second chance opportunities on offense.
Harry Giles (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) –CP3 – 2016
Giles may have been the most impressive player that I saw on Saturday. Giles has excellent skill, he can shoot the jump hook or turn around in the post with either hand and finish over defenders. He can also play along the perimeter and comfortably knock down the deep ball or attack the basket.
Martins Igbanu (Atlanta, Georgia) – Southern Stampede – 2016
This 6-foot-9 post is a big and physical presence on the interior. Saturday night he came up big in a win over the Alabama Challenge. He is a load in the paint and was hard to be stopped once he caught the ball underneath the basket.
John Petty (Huntsville, Alabama) – Alabama Challenge – 2017
This 6-foot-4 guard has the ability to score in bunches. Saturday he showcased the ability to score at every level. He plays the game in an attack mode offensively and is always a threat to shoot, drive or pass the ball.
