Heading to another gym, we hit the road to Wiinston Salem on Wednesday to check out the post grad teams, both the purple and black team, at Winston Salem Christian. These are two teams that have talent that D2 and D3 schools will surely want to keep an eye on and look at.
Let’s dive into the two teams, as these are a few names that caught our eyes.
6’6 Kenny Hodges: Probably the best athlete on the team and one that schools could really work with. Hodges looks to rip off the rim each time, showcasing his power and strong feel at the rim, while also using that same athleticism on the defensive end. Can defend multiple positions on the court but is one that coaches can work with on more on the offensive end.
6’3 Lovell Smith: Smith has good size at 6’3 and is a sneaky athlete on the court. He showcased that on multiple occasions, whether it was closing out on defenders or bringing that same sneaky power at the rim.
6’3 Parker Grant: Grant has nice size and length that allows him to play multiple positions on the court. Showcased the ability to handle at the point guard but also play off the ball.
6’0 Price Tramel: A smaller guard but one that showed the ability to create off the dribble, showcase his feel to find his teammates, and one that can spot up and shoot the ball well. Love his confidence on the court.
6’0 Richard Law: Law is one for programs to really keep an eye on. He brings a strong build but is one that clearly shows that he can knock down shots from the perimeter. Has a great feel for the game and has a polished game. Plays calm and showed he can play on and off the ball.
6’8 Tavis Bridges: Underrated for what he does on the floor but this is a mobile forward that plays long, moves well, rebounds the ball, and can be a shot-blocker as well. The young man is always working on his game, continuing to expand his game and feel. He will be playing on the national team.
6’2 Adam Thomas: Guard/Wing prospect that plays hard on both ends, can stretch the floor with his perimeter shot, and really runs the floor well on both ends. Brings a lot of energy to the table. Able to create for himself, and showcase his speed in the open court.
6’4 Seydina Dieng: Liked his energy on the court in what he was able to provide. He impacts the floor in many ways, whether it was attacking the basket, stepping out, bringing a motor to the floor, and attacking the glass. He plays with effort on the court.
6’3 Zay Kesler: He is a gifted athlete that has a lot of bounce to his game. He can play multiple positions on both ends, guarding and rebounding his position. Kesler also has an inside-out game with a consistent jumper. He brings a lot of energy to the court.
