The Hoop States Top Private schools gathered at Greensboro Day School for a star studded summer showcase.
Greensboro, North Carolina– This Live Period event gives the Coaches, Scouts, and Media, an opportune chance to checkout some of the best prospects in the state under a controlled team setting.
6’3 2022 Jaden Bradley (Cannon)– Bradley looks the part of a high major floor general, he’s got the size, skill set and athletic ability big time programs covett. Bradley plays well beyond his years, he never looks rushed, Bradley is always poised and in control of the tempo.
Bradley has Elite court vision and he delivered timely, accurate dimes to teammates. Bradley is an unselfish star, he knows at any moment he can turn it on and get his. Bradley’s rebounding ability is an underrated part of his game in my opinion, he’s extremely active on the boards. On several occasions he skied for defensive rebounds and pushed the ball coast to coast, in transition Bradley is tough to stay in front of.
6’4 2021 Jarvis Moss (Cannon)- The other half of a talented Cannon backcourt, Moss showed a nice offensive aresenal. Off ball Moss shot the ball well, he’s a streaky shooter capable of heating up in a bury.
Moss’s three point shooting really busted things open for Cannon in their first contest, Moss also ran the floor extremely well and threw down a few rim rocking dunks in the process. Moss has good size and length at 6’4 currently in the combo guard mold, he’s more of a natural scorer but also flashed some playmaking ability.
6’3 2022 Jaydon Young (Greensboro Day) It seems Greensboro Day has formed a three headed monster in the backcourt, along with Carson McCorkle and Cam Hayes, Young helps add to one of the best returning backcourts in the state.
Young has a bright future and that’s obvious, but he’s also ready to contribute some big minutes right now. Young flashed nice versatility as another primary ball handler taking pressure off Hayes, Young also found looks off ball and knocked down tough shots. Young can spot up or get his off the bounce, he’s got nice size at 6’3 and should continue to add even more muscle as he develops. Defensively Young guards multiple positions, he’s physical and won’t hesitate to get in the opponents jumper, Young also showed he’s got ice in his veins, when the game was on the line Young came through for GDS.
6’3 2021 Trae Benham (Concord First Assembly) Benham is in for a breakout year mark my words, I’m expecting a major leap heading into his third prep season. Benham gave the Greensboro Day guards just about all they could handle, he put on one of the best shooting performances I personally saw yesterday.
Benham scores on multiple spot up attempts, and proved to have the snatch in the bag as well, Benham has a filthy step back and wasn’t shy about unleashing it. Benham has a quick fluid release with logo range, he’s constantly in motion looking to carve out space. Benham will utilized the entire floor and his teammates continued to find him, at one point it seemed the game was about to get ugly, but Benham sparked an inspiring comeback that had the hosts on their heels to the very end.
6’9 2020 Myles Evans (Ravenscroft) Evans was truly the lone bright spot for the Ravens in a tough first matchup in this showcase, as a unit this group never got the opportunity to established a rhythm. Evans did come to play, he was physical on the block and utilized his wide frame to establish position down low.
Evans has good hands and a soft touch, he also stretched the floor with his three point shooting. Evans connected on several shots from deep, he shoots the rock with confidence. Evans is also a force on the boards, he’s plays with a good motor on both ends of the floor.
