Powder Springs, Ga – A number of prospects elevated their games and caught the attention of our staff. Here are some of the notable players that stood out during the first evaluation period of April.
2020 Marcus Niblack – Showtime Ballers
Niblack can score the ball in a variety of ways, connecting on mid-range jumpers, nailing the deep ball or attacking the basket where he can finish at the rim. With his quickness and crafty handles, it is easy for him to create separation to get his shot off. Niblack dropped in 21 points in the 15u A-10 division championship game.
2019 Logan Pearlman – Florida Future
There were a few sleepers who made a name for themselves this past weekend. Logan Pearlman was definitely one of them. Logan started the first day of the Live Period by knocking down six three pointers and finishing with 26 points. Pearlman, who was not a one trick pony poured in 25 points and connected on five three pointers in his second outing. Standing at six foot four Logan can flat out shoot the ball. He can create his own shot with a few dribbles or sit behind the three-point line and knock down the set shot.
2019 Chandler Leopard – Alabama Basketball Academy
There were a handful of shooters at the first session of the Sweet 16. Leopard may have been the top shooter that our staff had a chance to see over the weekend. Once he gets in a rhythm he has the ability to reel off several deep three pointers in a row. What also makes his shot so deadly, is his quick release. Leopard didn’t need much space to get his shot off as he torched opposing defenses all weekend.
2020 Toneari Lane – Atlanta Xpress
Toneari Lane is a name that a lot of high school basketball fans in Georgia are starting to get more and more familiar with. The sensational freshman won Freshman of the Year in his region. He has a good combination of size and athleticism. Lane plays with a ton of energy on both sides of the court. He attacks the basket, finishes through traffic and does an excellent job of creating second chance opportunities on the offensive glass.
2020 Cameron Sheffield – Game Elite Tree
The brother of Stanford guard Marcus Sheffield is trying make a name for himself and get out his brother shadow, and he is currently on the right path. Cameron, standing at six-foot-two made a living getting to the free throw line at the Sweet 16 Session I. He squares his opponents up on the perimeter and attacks the rim with couple of dribbles. Once at the rim, he is able to absorb the contact and make the basket with either hand. As Cameron’s game, continues to involve and grow, be on the lookout for him to be the next great prospect out of Chattahoochee High School.
