6’4 ’19 DeAngelo Elliott
The Elliott brothers are the heart and soul of this team, and DeAngelo was exceptional during this game, pushing the pace, operating off the dribble, and attacking the rim more than ever. With this squad, he’s extremely vocal and does an incredible job of leading by example on both ends of the floor. He should have a productive season and see a gradual uptick in his recruitment.
6’1 ’19 Devin Elliott
The point guard prospect possesses great quickness and touches the paint with regularity, able to break down opponents off the dribble and make plays inside the arc. He’s a willing passer with quality vision and a great overall feel for the game. Elliott is a capable shooter from midrange and beyond the arc, but is always looking for cutting teammates and ready to make the extra pass.
6’4 ’20 Amil Flowers
The most intriguing prospect in this contest was Flowers, who possesses solid ball-handling and highlight-reel athleticism. He has nice size for a wing prospect and could be poised for a very productive upcoming season. Flowers is the strongest two-way contributor on this team and understands how to make his presence felt without requiring the ball in his hands.
6’3 ’20 Maurice Hayes
Nobody was able to outwork Hayes on either side of the ball during this game; he sprints from end to end and relentlessly attacks opponents. He plays with great activity around the basket, able to secure and convert numerous second-chance opportunities. Hayes gets low on defense and knows how to bother opponents with his nonstop motor.
6’5 ’19 Jamal King
Thus far, King has been the most dominant player in this final slate of games, scoring however he desires while actively looking to get his teammates involved. He’s big, strong, and relatively versatile on both ends of the floor. King scores efficiently on all three levels and understands how to take advantage of his size against smaller defenders. He has a strong feel for the game and is able to easily switch between three positions on defense.
6’2 ’22 Jayden Young
As one of the youngest players in this game, it was encouraging to see Young manage the team and make smart decisions with the ball. He can knock down open looks and is capable of touching the paint pretty often. Young displays a nice handle and solid playmaking instincts, able to create for himself or others with relative ease. He’s a freshman and should be worth keeping an eye on throughout the coming years.
Greater Beckley Christian:
6’5 ’20 Jay Moore
The strongest contributor in this game was Moore, who showcased nice two-way versatility and was willing to burden the scoring load throughout the day. He gets downhill and attacks well, but also showed phenomenal playmaking instincts and willingly passed the ball ahead in transition. He displayed a quality feel for the game and took genuine pride in his defensive play.
6’5 ’22 Tommie Carter
Long, wiry, and brimming with upside would be the proper way to describe Carter, who was the most intriguing prospect on Elevation Prep. He’s very young and already knows how to make plays at a consistent rate. Carter is a pretty well-rounded athlete with solid versatility for his age.
6’l ’19 Jalen Walker-Crawford
The strong-bodied guard prospect made an excellent impact in transition today, scoring frequently and showing flashes of playing well above the rim. He’s a solid ball-handler and capable shooter. Walker-Crawford operates nicely within his role and provides great energy to his team.
6’4 ’20 Tyler McKinney
There’s no legitimate reason that McKinney doesn’t hold multiple offers at this stage in his playing career, especially given how reliably consistent he is. He scores efficiently and regularly from all levels, but has the rare ability to change his approach if shots aren’t falling. McKinney does everything on the floor, from rebounding to playmaking, and simply understands how to play the right way. He will make a college coach extremely happy one day.
6’8 ’19 Jaqwan Baylor
The big man prospect was able to impose his will on both ends of the floor, utilizing his massive frame to barrel down defenders. He showed touch around the basket and attacked the rim fairly often on offense while doing whatever possible to alter shots on defense. Baylor ran the floor with purpose and scored numerous times in transition.
