Maryland bound guard Antony Cowan is scoring point guard that can flat get it going on the offensive end of the floor. He pushes the ball in transition and if he is not picked up he will be at the rim before his defender reaches half court. He can attack the rim with a great deal of speed and break tackles from reaching defenders in the lane and finish without any problem.
Romello White of Stackhouse Elite is an athletic finisher in transition and lob threat because he runs the floor at high speeds on a consistent basis. He hits the glass on both ends and is extremely hard to box out because of his great energy and effort.
Alex Reese of SE Elite had coaches lined up along the baseline the entire week of the Elite 32 Session I & II. Alabama, Auburn, and Vanderbilt had their entire staff on hand to watch the 6-foot-9 power forward out of Pelham, Alabama. He has the ability to put up big numbers in both points and rebounds scoring off the post feed or getting his own on the offensive glass. Reese does a nice job fighting for low post position; once he catches he can score going left or right shoulder.
The Wake Forrest commit performed with consistency at the Elite 32 Session II for the Karolina Diamonds. He showed willingness to keep the ball moving in the half-court allowing class of 2016 teammate Ty Graves to get plenty of touches. This scoring lead guard pushes the ball in transition and is a threat to take the outlet pass coast to coast or shoot the three off the dribble without hesitation.
On the Radar
Junior guard Alex O’Connell of Milton High School is an athletic scoring guard who can play multiple positions. He is quite potent in transition where he can attack the rim or deliver a nifty assist. O’Connell will visit Clemson on September 5th followed by a visit to the University of Georgia on September 12th.
Georgia native Kevon Harris recently transferred to West Oaks in Florida. This 6-foot-6 forward caught the attention of many high major programs this summer. Harris is a strong and physical wing that plays with great energy and is in attack mode at all times.
Legacy Charter forward Nicholas Claxton will be a player to keep an eye on in the 2017 class. He plays with tremendous energy and effort on both ends of the court. He has a great deal of upside with his best basketball days ahead of him due to his impressive athleticism. Claxton attracted the attention of South Carolina, Missouri, Southern California, Clemson and Georgia after his performance in the Elite 32.
Alabama guard Cam Horton caught the attention of many mid major programs during the July evaluation period. He is first and foremost a scorer and he can hurt the opposition in many ways. He’s at his best in transition where he attacks the basket with reckless abandon.
Januad Notae of Newton County High School in Georgia was the talk of many coaches after a strong showing at the Power 24. He showed he can run the team from the point guard position or play off the ball and assume the scoring responsibilities from the shooting guard spot.
Texas native Mongo Cornett attacks the boards with aggression on both ends, and points usually result from offensive rebounds and put-backs. He also has good athleticism, which allows him to get out and score in transition. Roberson plays the game with great intensity and displays the toughness necessary to compete on the interior.
