Atlanta, Ga., – There were a number of teams from around the country that participated in the OnTheRadarHoops.com tournaments during the July evaluation periods. Many of the top prospects around the country participated in these events. Here is a look back at a few of the notable performers who emerged over the summer:

Miles Black – Atlanta Select

He is a true shooting guard with deep range who especially likes to shoot three’s from either corner. He has good confidence in his shot and is not afraid to take the big shot and he usually makes it. He’s also not afraid to slash from the wing and finish at the rim with either hand. Black has the ability to score in bunches, he posted multiple 20 point games this summer.

Carlos Marshall – Team Thad

Marshall is a strong built wing who over powers his defender gets into the lane and finishes through contact. Despite having the ability to get his shot off at any time, he picks his spots well and has the versatility to take whatever the defense gives him. He has several gears off the dribble and can almost lull a defender to sleep before quickly accelerating and blowing past him.

JD Notae – Infinite SkillzJDNotae

One of the better scorers that we had an opportunity to see during the summer, Notae can score in bunches. He shot the ball well off the catch or dribble. He can also create off the dribble where he was effective knocking down the mid-range jumper or finishing at the basket.

Tyrece Radford – Louisiana Elite

Radford has good ball quickness and is effective at lifting his defender with a pump fake. He has improved his playmaking skills and is better at driving and kicking the ball to an open teammate. He has a good stroke and deep range that forces the defense to stretch, opening all kinds of driving lanes for his teammates. He can really score in a variety of ways though and that is one thing that separates him from many of the prospects that we saw this summer.

Kailex Stephenson – Alabama Premier

He has a scoring mentality and can get it going once he gets into a groove. He displayed the ability to knock down floaters in the lane over post defenders with ease. Stephenson has the size, strength and athletic ability to be a multiple position defender if he makes it a priority.

Post players emerge this summer

Wyatt Hollmann – Showtime HoopsWyatt

Hollmann made a name for himself at the Elite 32 Session II, when he recorded multiple double-doubles and even posted a triple-double. Hollmann has very good passing skills and vision for a big man. He seems to have the most success when he plays as a face-up 4-man that has the ability to stretch defenses due to his shooting ability, with range that extends out to the 3-point line.

Ben Topp – PSB Select

He runs well and get up and down the court at a good pace. He has a nice touch in tight around the lane and also displayed the ability to step out and hit the open short corner jumper. Topp is a good post defender and is also alert on the help side.

Jordan Wright – D3 M.O.A.M. Elite Jordan

He brings great energy every time he takes the floor and impacts the game with hustle plays. He is an offensive rebounding specialist that has a good feel for the path off the ball. Wright has good touch in the lane and he was effective at attacking the basket from the high post area where he can get to the rim and finish with spins before he elevates over defenders.

Jaqavius Haynes – Game Elite

This 6-foot-6 forward caught the attention of many of the college programs that were in attendance. Haynes is athletic and active, he does a good job of blocking and changing shots around the basket. He showed the ability to rebound well inside and outside of his area. Haynes recorded multiple double-doubles during the Elite 32.        

De’Lazarus Keys – Florida ForceD

The big fella was effective catching at the mid-post and facing up where he showed his ability to knock down a 12 foot jumper or put the ball on the floor for one or two dribbles and get to the rim. Defensively he looks to stay between his man and the bucket while understanding help concepts for his teammates.
