#OTRHoopsReport: Spring Standouts Part II – May 24, 2016
Wes Morgan was automatic from behind the arc at the Sweet 16 Session I.
Atlanta, Ga. – The Sweet 16 Session I & II was held during the April evaluation periods. This was a must attend event for college programs around the country, which featured some of the top programs in the Southeast. Here are a few of the notable performers from the Sweet 16.
Wes Morgan – (Charlotte, NC) – PSB Select – 2017
Morgan is a legitimate knock down three point shooter and it was on display at the first session of the Sweet 16. He has a high basketball IQ, spotting up on the fast break and his handles are good enough to get past defenders that try to guard him too close. Morgan has the ability to knock down multiple shots from behind the arc in hurry, this recent North Florida commit will be a player for basketball fans to keep an eye on this summer.
David Quimby – (Albany, GA) – Georgia Canes – 2017
Quimby is a lengthy 6-foot-4 guard with excellent vision but still has the mindset to take over games. He is smooth with either hand, can knock down the 3 with ease, and with him being so tall he was able to get any shot he wanted this weekend. His arms allow him to cause havoc in the passing lanes defensively and he thinks the game very well. He has picked up interest from VMI, Troy, and UNC-Greensboro.
Micah Johnson – (Tifton, GA) – Tift County – 2017
Johnson is a solid point guard that possesses the entire package offensively. He is the leader of his team and his team struggled when he wasn’t able to get it going early in a game Saturday. However you can’t keep real players down long as he was able to create his own shot and made clutch baskets in that same game Saturday to eventually win the championship in the “Big 12” bracket. He showed a nice mid-range game and has the IQ to know when to take it all the way to the goal or simply pull up for a 12-15 foot shot.
Keiodre Perry – (Covington, GA) – Team Affect – 2017
Perry is a lot like Quimby in the way they score however Perry is more of wing player that slashes more and gets his points in the paint than on the perimeter. He can be very active on the boards and his second jump after his initial misses are what allowed him to score 25 points in his matchup Sunday against Ware Prep Raiders. Good athlete that can shoot the basketball but will be known for getting into the lane more so than anything else. Perry has interest from Tennessee Tech and Middle Tennessee State.
Quentin Scott – (Houma, LA) – LT Rockets – 2016
This 6-foot-7 forward has the ability to play multiple positions, Scott impressed out staff with his perimeter skill set. He was great attacking the basket from either the short corner or the high post, where he can beat many players his size off the dribble. He rebounds well inside and outside of his area as well as altering shots around the basket.
On the Radar
Oscar Tsheibwe – (Charlotte, NC) – West Virginia Wildcats – 2019
His energy level and activeness is rare for a young post player as he is relentless on the defensive end of the floor. Tsheibwe, is a very good help side shot blocker that alters as many as he blocks and showed a good feel for playing without fouling. He post up well and provides the passer with an excellent target hand, where he finishes through traffic.
DJ Burns – (Rock Hill, SC) – Georgia Stars – 2019
Burns was one of the most productive post players we saw this spring, He understands how to post up and is effective with his back to the basket with seal or up & under moves. He is great at creating contact by using head fakes to get to the free throw line. Burns is a player to watch nationally in the 2019 class.
Sharife Cooper – (Atlanta, Ga) – A.O.T – 2020
Cooper is a true point who makes plays for himself and others. He has a tight handle, good court vision, and incredible passing ability. He has the ability to read the defense and make decisions while in attack mode. He has floaters and pull up jumpers in his offensive arsenal and is an outstanding pick and roll guard.
