It’s camp time! Time to separate yourself from the pack. Here are my standouts from Day I of camp:
2020 6’0 Landon Sutton #49
Landon displayed his shot-making ability yesterday. He knocked down threes, mid-range shots, and pull jumpers in transition. He is a smart cerebral player, Sutton understands his spots on the floor. His poise was very impressive, he made the game look so easy.
2021 6’2 Jamarien Dalton #81
Smooth young player, he plays at his own pace and can affect the game in multiple ways. He can facilitate, rebound, defend, and score. He is a luxury to have on your squad because of his versatility. Each game he showcased something different, camps are typically a “get in where you fit in” setting. Jamarien does that perfectly.
2021 6’4 Akhiris Holden #100
At 6’4, Holden athleticism is very impressive. He is wiry, long, and active. Holden made his presence felt around the basket, literally trying to dunk everything and attacking the offensive/defensive glass. His vertical catches defenders off guard because you would not expect Holden to throw it down on you from the baseline dunker’s spot like he does.
2022 5’10 Reid Carrier #28
Reid was top 5 in scoring yesterday at camp. He averaged 18 pts throughout 3 games, and I did not see him force a single shot. His IQ is very high, as he always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Yesterday, the jumper was falling for Reid consistently but he displayed some playmaking ability. I’m looking forward to see what Reid brings to the court today.
2022 6’3 Julius Reese #89
physically Julius is mature for his age, he has good size at the guard position. He is tenacious and a competitor, Julius plays with a purpose. I love his “go get it” mentality when he is on the floor, he stays aggressive all game. Reese uses his strength to get in the lane and make plays. Once his jumper begins to click, he will be a true problem for defenses to stop.
