Dayton, OH. – Flyin to the Hoop has established itself as the nation’s most prestigious tournament on an annual basis. The 13th edition of the event was no different. With over twenty-five Division one graded prospects, please believe that we walked away with plenty of knowledge. Here is a look at a few of the individuals who stood out Saturday.
Luke Kennard – (Franklin, Oh.) – Franklin – 2015
Kennard has been great this year scoring multiple 50 point games on almost a weekly basis. The 6-foot-5 sharp shooting guard is a future Duke Blue Devil. Saturday night he showed why he is amongst the best players in the senior class. Kennard is a confident shooter with good size, which allows him to shoot over smaller opponents with ease. Every shot he takes looks to have a chance to go in. There is no question he stretches the defense better than most. When he heats up, he has the ability to go on a run to knock down five or six deep ones in a row. Kennard finished with a game-high 47 points in a close win over Montrose Christian (MD).
Josh Jackson – (Southfield, MI) – Prolific Prep – 2016
Many have regarded Jackson as one of the top players in the junior class. We have him listed at No. 4 in our BrandonClayScouting.com Elite 60. Jackson is a pure scorer who is capable of getting buckets from anywhere on the floor. He is quick off the bounce with a tight handle and he has great body control in the lane where he can finish either above his man or around multiple defenders. He has a quick trigger and shoots over smaller defenders with ease. Jackson is an underrated passer who uses his length to see over the defense where he delivers the ball right on target.
Jalen Coleman – Indianapolis, IN) – La Lumiere School – 2015
An Illinois signee, Coleman was terrific in the second half and extra period helping La Lumiere to hang on for a win over Prolific Prep out of California. Coleman is a big time scorer who beat the defense in a variety of ways Saturday night. One of the most impressive things about him is that while he is such a pure scorer, he does so without overdoing anything and allowing the game to come to him. Coleman finished with a game-high 30 points which included (2) big three pointers late in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
