Team 4

Coach: John Royal

#4: 5’8 ’26 Traysn Clinkscales (Hillcrest)

Starting things off, we look at a player who did a lot of things well despite being the smallest camper on this team, Traysn Clinkscales. He’s a scrappy, young guard prospect with excellent quickness and a tight handle. Clinkscales is a capable penetrator and playmaker, yet knows how to cause problems for opponents as a spot-up threat. He’s a quality three-point shooter with the ability to consistently knock down shots off the catch. Clinkscales contains his assignment well at the point of attack and utilizes his high motor to regularly make hustle plays. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher around the basket. Coach Royal on Clinkscales: “Traysn is a good shooter and spot-up player with decent range. He’s slightly undersized but plays hard and accepts coaching well. Can work on moving without the ball.” Clinkscales enjoyed a solid showing at camp and has the tools to be a key piece for Hillcrest over the foreseeable future.

Next, we look at a player who frequently found ways to stand out as a leader on both ends of the floor, Bryce Peterson. He’s a tough, high-motor guard prospect with a nice IQ and unselfish approach to the game. Peterson is a capable shooting threat, but is at his best when getting downhill and attacking the basket—where he’s able to finish or set up others. He’s very quick, which allows him to cause problems for opponents and force turnovers at a healthy rate. Peterson is also a useful rebounder who displays a willingness to make hustle plays. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Royal on Peterson: “Bryce is a vocal leader and motivator. He’s got a great first step and uses his body really well on driving angles. Great attitude. Accepts coaching well.” Peterson proved to be an asset at camp and should be a definite focal point for Andrew Jackson going forward.
