6’3” Curtis Houston
Beckley IJN (WV)
Houston is a big-bodied point guard, who has all the tools in his kit. Where he shined the most was with his pace, his ability to get to his spots and touch the paint when he wanted. As a big-bodied guard, he showcased a nice floater game as well as 3-point touch. He is a consistent performer in every setting we have seen him and is one who should be looked at as a Division 1 talent.
6’2” Amir Nesbitt
Miller School (VA)
Nesbitt has continued to be a steady performer, and player since he was a freshman and sophomore. He has continued on that path this year at the Miller School, acting as a secondary ball-handler and, most importantly, a shot-maker. Nesbitt has touch that extends beyond the 3-point arc, he knocked in an array of one and two dribble pull-ups and he displayed the ability to initiate offense in the half-court. A lot to like with this D1 prospect.
5’11” McQuade Canada
Wyoming East (WV)
This was our first viewing of Canada, and we walked away very impressed with his ability to do a lot of things on the floor. He ran the team with a flashy, but efficient, handle. He showcased a very quick crossover dribble and knocked down shots at every level, with his ability to create space off the bounce. When the game was on the line, Canada shined his brightest, making shots and creating plays. He is a scholarship level player, one who had a great showing against a very good team.
6’8” Kevin Siakam
Beckley Prep (WV)
Siakam is the cousin of Pascal. He is very strong, with a great frame and good length. Siakam did his damage around the basket, showing his motor to fight for boards and also protect the rim some. When the ball was above his waist, he showed good hands and he had a nice touch going over his left shoulder, however, he was most effective catching the ball in the dunk spots. Norfolk State and Hampton have offered, that feels right.
6’1” Andrew Shull
Shull is a killer, he’s been a killer all summer and he continued in his killing ways here in this event. Leading his team to a 2-0 record, Shull really shined with his 30 point outburst against pre-season Top 100 ranked ISA Osborne Academy. Shull scored the ball at every level, showcasing floaters, mid-range pull-ups and deep 3s. He plays with total confidence and is a winner. Wingate has offered and is making him a priority. Others would be smart to jump in.
