Coach: Greg Harmon
#60: 5’5 ’23 Mason Trombley (Northwest Cabarrus)
Starting things off, we look at a player that showed a willingness to do whatever possible to get involved in the action, Mason Trombley. He’s a smart, slightly undersized point guard prospect that knows how to communicate and maximize his offensive touches. Trombley can initiate offense, operate without the ball, and knock down perimeter jumpers at a respectable rate. Next in his development process is working to become quicker, as it would make him a more reliable penetrating threat. Coach Harmon on Trombley: “Mason plays with great effort and is very coachable. He can improve on moving without the ball and working on the consistency of his perimeter jumper. He handles the ball well. Mason can continue to work on strength and quickness. He proved to be a wiling passer but can still improve on help defense and transition defense.” Trombley gave great effort throughout his time at camp and could be a prospect to watch progress over the coming years.
#72: 5’8 ’23 Gavin Stinson (Oak Grove)
Next, we look at a player that stood out nicely with his motor and intensity on both ends of the floor, Gavin Stinson. He’s a young, wiry guard prospect with solid defensive instincts and the ability to make his presence felt at the point of attack. Stinson typically works without the ball and finds success as a cutter or spot-up threat. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it will make him a better finisher through contact. Coach Harmon on Stinson: “Gavin plays hard on both ends of the floor and gives great effort at all times. He’s a very unselfish player that is very coachable. He can continue to improve on strength, quickness, and the overall consistency of his perimeter jumper. Gavin can get better at finishing around the basket and developing his off-hand. He plays defense with great energy but can still work on moving without the ball offensively.” Stinson worked very hard during his time at camp and could be a player to watch going forward, especially if he continues to work.
#80: 5’9 ’23 Casian Richard (Winston-Salem Christian)
Moving onto a player that was arguably among the top young floor generals on display, Casian Richard. He’s a smart, quick, pass-friendly point guard prospect with the ability to play fast or slow, depending on his surrounding cast. Richard highlighted nice scoring efficiency from all over the floor and was able to touch the paint basically whenever he desired, which led to numerous layups and assists. Next in his development process is working on his overall defensive intensity, as he has the necessary ability to become a quality defender. Coach Harmon on Richard: “Casian plays unselfishly and displays good court vision. He gambles at times on the defensive end and can improve with his help-defense. He has a quick first step and dribbles/passes well with both hands. Casian is very coachable and plays with great effort. He can continue to work on finishing in traffic and moving without the ball on offense.” Richard continues to better and better with each viewing and should be ready to run a high school team sooner than later.
#93: 5’11 ’23 Jordan Moody (Greensboro Day)
Continuing onto a player that made his presence consistently felt as an off-ball defender by jumping into passing lanes, Jordan Moody. He’s a quick, young, high-motor guard with useful creation skills and the ability to score pretty well in the midrange area. Moody is a willing passer with nice vision, which he utilizes effectively in transition or the half-court. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more scoring opportunities as an off-ball cutter. Coach Harmon on Moody: “Jordan plays good help-defense and is very coachable. He can improve on his shooting, as his shot can be inconsistent. He can work on moving without the ball on offense. He has a great attitude and plays with great effort. Jordan can improve his finishing at the basket and overall on-ball defense.” Moody enjoyed a solid showing at camp and could be a prospect to keep an eye on over the coming years.
#102: 6’0 ’23 Zikei Wheeler (Jay M. Robinson)
Next, we look at a player that showcased a blossoming, fairly well-rounded skillset during camp, Zikei Wheeler. He’s a smart, unselfish guard prospect with quickness and the ability to attack the basket with regularity. Wheeler finishes well with both hands and knows how to set up others when getting downhill. Next in his development process is working on his consistency as a perimeter shooter, as it would complement his penetration game nicely. Coach Harmon on Wheeler: “Zikei handles the ball well with both hands and is a strong driver when going to the basket. He needs to improve on moving without the ball and can continue to work on his presence as a rebounder. His shot could become more consistent but he plays with good effort on both ends of the floor. He’s a team player and willing passer. Zikei can continue to work on off-ball defense and finishing at the basket in traffic.” Wheeler did a lot of things well, particularly for his age, and should be one to watch throughout his continued progression.
#115: 6’2 ’20 Jayden Krause (Choctawhatchee)
Moving onto a player that made a lasting impression with his ability to make the hustle plays on both ends of the floor, Jayden Krause. He’s a long, strong-bodied wing/forward prospect that plays bigger than his size, makes his presence felt on the glass, and can defend multiple positions. Krause can knock down the open shot but found most of his scoring through second-chance points and transition play. Next in his development process is working to become a more consistent perimeter shooter, as it would take his offensive game to another level. Coach Harmon on Krause: “Jayden plays hard and with good effort. His jumper is inconsistent at times but he plays with great energy on both ends of the floor. He doesn’t mind doing the dirty work and goes after every loose ball. Jayden communicates great on defense and defends well on and off the ball. He’s very coachable and moves well without the ball offensively. He can continue to improve on finishing at the basket and developing his off-hand.” Krause worked hard throughout his time at camp and could be a solid late addition for the right program at the next level with continued work.
#121: 6’2 ’20 Deangelo Gladden (Phillip O’Berry)
Continuing onto a player that really stood out with his motor and sheer defensive prowess, Deangelo Gladden. He’s a strong, quick, fairly athletic guard prospect that plays extremely hard on both ends of the floor and naturally finds a way to affect all facets of the game. Gladden is a tough rebounder with an excellent nose for the ball. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher and overall ball-handler. Coach Harmon on Gladden: “Deangelo plays with great effort on both ends of the floor and is always in good position for help defense. He boxes out and rebounds with consistency. He’s willing and able to defend multiple positions. Deangelo’s jumper is somewhat inconsistent and he could look to attack the basket more often. He’s very coachable and displays a great attitude. Deangelo can continue to develop his off-hand and ability to move without the ball offensively.” Gladden enjoyed a quality showing at camp and could be a solid late addition for the right program, especially if he’s willing to work.
#136: 6’5 ’20 Colin Radcliffe (Living Water Christian)
Next, we look at a player that is capable of taking over a game or operating within his role, Colin Radcliffe. He’s a big, athletic, fairly versatile wing prospect with creation skills and the ability to score from all three levels. Radcliffe utilizes his size well on both ends of the floor to defend, rebound, and mix it up offensively. Next in his development process is working on his overall consistency as a scorer, as he’s shown the ability to take over and operate as a focal point. Coach Harmon on Radcliffe: “Colin is very coachable and plays team basketball but must improve on moving without the ball and work on the consistency as a shooter. He can improve his on and off-ball defense as well. Colin gets to the basket but can continue to work on his finishing ability. He handles the ball well with either hand and passes the ball well. Colin could also work on developing his post moves.” Radcliffe continues to showcase all the tools to become a very successful player at the next level, wherever he should ultimately end up.
#142: 6’6 ’22 Zavion Bianchini (McDowell)
Finishing up, we look at a player that is truly just beginning to scratch the surface of his long-term abilities, Zavion Bianchini. He’s a long, strong, fairly athletic forward/post prospect with solid toughness and a quality two-way motor. Bianchini consistently fought on the glass, moved without the ball, and ran the floor in transition. He’s only going to continue to get better with time and repetitions. Next in his development process is working on his consistency as a finisher, as it would make him a much more reliable interior presence. Coach Harmon on Bianchini: “Zavion is very coachable and plays hard. He needs to improve his on and off-ball defense. He’s a great team player that plays with good effort but must work on rebounding the ball and developing his overall post game. Zavion can work on getting stronger physically and developing his off-hand. He runs the floor well in transition.” Bianchini highlighted a lot of tools at camp and could be a prospect worth keeping an eye on going forward.
