Coach: Jon Mobley
#3: 5’0 ’26 Dawson Clapsaddle (Cherokee)
Starting things off, we look at a player that worked extremely hard and contributed well despite his lack of size, Dawson Clapsaddle. He’s a young guard prospect with a nice motor and team-first mentality on both ends of the floor. Clapsaddle showed his ability to knock down open jumpers along the perimeter while passing to open teammates at every available opportunity. He provided great energy on defense and did a quality job of making his presence felt on that end of the floor. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it’ll allow him to be more physically-imposing as a defender and rebounder. Coach Mobley on Clapsaddle: “Dawson has a great attitude and tons of heart. He needs to continue working on his shot selection and moving without the ball.” Clapsaddle enjoyed a solid showing at camp and could be one to keep an eye on, especially if he continues to work.
#6: 5’5 ’25 Jack Teesateskie (Cherokee)
Next, we look at a player that exemplified a ton of passion and intensity throughout camp, Jack Teesateskie. He’s a young, wiry guard prospect with a tremendous motor and the ability to make an impact without necessarily needing to score. Teesateskie looks to do whatever possible to give his team an edge, from hustling to rebounding to making the extra pass. Next in his development process is working to add strength, as it’ll likely make him a more consistent finisher and three-point shooter. Coach Mobley on Teesateskie: “Jack has a very big heart and is a tremendous hustle player. He’s pretty good defensively and forced some nice turnovers during camp. He can continue to work on his shot selection and ball-handling.” Teesateskie definitely showcased some quality flashes during camp and could be one to watch progress over the next few years as he prepares for the high school ranks.
#12: 5’6 ’23 Kehler Lamb (Franklin)
Moving onto a player that was arguably the main glue-guy for this team during camp, Kehler Lamb. He’s a fairly well-rounded guard prospect that showed his ability to affect all facets of the game while operating nicely within the team concept. Lamb understands how to impact the game without forcing the action and is capable of knocking down open looks along the perimeter. He hustled for rebounds, loose balls, and always looked to make the right play on offense. Next in his development process is working to add strength, as he will need it in order to be more physically prepared for the high school level. Coach Mobley on Lamb: “Kehler has a great attitude and showed his ability to accept coaching. He plays hard and was able to fill in the gaps nicely on both ends for our team.” Lamb enjoyed a nice showing at camp and should continue working to maximize his long-term potential.
#16: 5’7 ’24 Carson Brown (Weaverville)
Continuing onto a player that showcased a pretty intriguing array of tools throughout camp, Carson Brown. He’s a fairly polished guard prospect with a nice balance between scoring and playmaking. Brown typically works with the ball in his hands but showed a strong willingness to set up his teammates for easy buckets. Brown showed some nice flashes as a rebounder and defender, and understands how to utilize his motor to create havoc on that end of the floor. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to seize even more scoring opportunities as an off-ball cutter. Coach Mobley on Brown: “Carson is a good leader and passer. He can continue to work on his overall attitude and keeping his head up when closing out against the dribble.” Brown did a lot of things well during camp and could be one to keep an eye on over these next few years.
#25: 5’9 ’23 Cole Penland (TC Roberson)
Next, we look at a player that was able to assert himself quite regularly from beyond the three-point line, Cole Penland. He’s a strong-bodied guard prospect that plays with tremendous hustle and unselfishness on both ends of the floor. Penland has somewhat of an unorthodox shooting form, but was able to knock down a flurry of perimeter shots during camp. He looks to keep the ball moving as much as possible and understands how to make the correct play with or without the ball in his hands. Next in his development process is working on getting quicker, as it would make him a much more reliable penetrating threat. Coach Mobley on Penland: “Cole has a really big heart and provides a lot of hustle on the court. I would love to see Cole continue to work on his overall guard skills.” Penland did a great job of making his presence felt during camp and should continue working to prepare for his freshman season.
#31: 5’10 ’21 Drew Redmond (Christ School)
Moving onto a player that was clearly the best leader and most dominant two-way force for this team, Drew Redmond. He’s a smart, strong, quick lead guard prospect that simply suffocates his assignment on defense through positioning and physicality. Redmond is like a shot out of a cannon at all times, always amped up and ready to play incredibly hard every second he’s on the court. He rebounded, forced a ton of turnovers, and pushed transition play as well as any guard in the building. Redmond also knocked down jumpers at an efficient clip from all levels and set up his teammates nicely throughout the day. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him an even better finisher around the basket. Coach Mobley on Redmond: “Drew is an amazing player and team player with a great attitude. He showed the ability to finish on all three levels and was one of the top defenders that I saw today. Drew also made a point to get every one of his teammates involved.” Redmond was nothing short of spectacular during camp and could be poised for a productive upcoming season at Christ School.
#44: 6’0 ’25 Kadyn Turner-Scott (Greensboro)
Finishing up, we look at a player that possesses an exceptional crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Kadyn Turner-Scott. He’s a long, wiry wing/forward prospect with a nice array of skills and an advanced frame for his age. Turner-Scott showed his ability to score the ball from all levels while constantly applying pressure as a transition threat. He rebounded the ball effectively and was able to make an abundance of hustle plays to secure extra possessions. Next in his development process is working on becoming a lockdown defender, as it would make him an undeniably special long-term prospect. Coach Mobley on Turner-Scott: “Kadyn has a great attitude and obviously shows a desire to get better. His fundamentals are all there, he just needs to continue practicing and getting additional game experience.” Turner-Scott has all the tools to become a very useful two-way player and could genuinely end up being one of the top players from this camp in the future.
