“The Platform” held it’s first session in Winston-Salem NC last weekend, featuring some of the top AAU programs on the east coast. The event had teams ranging from sixth to eighth grade, and was a great preview to the AAU season and what teams will look like this spring.
There were so many standouts ranging from Virginia to Georgia and everywhere in between. There are still two more sessions, with one happening at U-Turn in Richmond on March 5 and 6, and one at the Virginia Beach Sportscenter April 15 and 16.
Here’s a look at part three of the standouts, looking at some of the top kids in the DMV area.
All of the games from the event are available on the CBG Live Network!
Neiko Mundey | New World 14U
Mundey was arguably the most talented player for one of the most talented teams in attendance, as his New World team went undefeated and he was the top scorer in almost every game they played. The 6’3” shooting guard has good size and a great feel for the game, he has a knack for scoring the basketball and can do it from all three levels, he plays with good pace and doesn’t get sped up and he makes tough shots from all over the floor consistently.
Parker Robinson | New World 14U
Robinson is another impressive player for this New World group, as he has good positional size at 6’2” for a guard and a complete skill set that makes him a dual threat player with the ball in his hands. He’s an excellent shooter who can knock it down consistently, he has good vision and playmaking ability and with his size he’s able to get in the lane and finish in traffic too.
Jaylen Collingworth | New World 14U
Collingworth is a very intriguing prospect moving forward in the DMV, as he has good size already and is very athletic for a player his age. He can play in the post and is often guarding big men but he’s also mobile and runs the floor, he can put it on the deck in straight lines and get to the rim and he has tons of potential moving forward on both ends of the floor.
Kem Danyiki | 6’2” WF | New World Neil 14U
Danyiki was the best player on the other New World team, and the way he moves and executes on the floor it’s easy to see that he has a lot of potential moving forward. The 6’2” wing is skilled with the ball in his hands, he runs the floor and gets to the rim with ease, he can make shots from multiple levels and he is a good defender as well.
Oladeji Olorungbohunmi | New World 13U
Olorungbohunmi is a very impressive player in the 13U bracket for many reasons, but mostly because of his size and the fact that he plays with a high motor at that size. He’s already pretty tall standing 6’5” and he dominates in the paint grabbing rebounds and using his frame to clear out space, he has good touch around the rim and good hands to catch tough passes and he brings it and gets high percentage looks over and over again with his understanding of how to move and get open.
Dwight Strickland | New World 13U
Stickland is another young prospect with good size for the New World 13U team that ran through the competition, and he has a good amount of versatility to his game already. He can handle the ball in transition and is a good finisher at the rim, he can make shots out to 18 feet and beyond and shows good form and good touch and he always finds ways to be productive across the board.
