2021 6’7 Alex Rush (Tennessee Tigers 17u): Rush is a power forward that works really well with his back to the basket, facing up and creating off one or two dribbles, or even showing off his mid-range shot.  Liked his feel for the game around the basket. 2021 6’7 Sam Specht (Tennessee Tigers 17u): A young man that has the size to compete down low, which he showed at times as well but also a...
