I made a pit stop in the birthplace of the Indy 500 and these young prospects were driving and kicking it into gear at a high level. Here are some of the top names in pole position this weekend.
Cody Evans | Grand Park Premier
Evans is a massive threat in the 2-man-game with an excellent touch from range. His ability to catch and shoot in space; pulled his opponents out of the paint, made for great ball movement, and turned good looks into great looks for teammates. The versatile big man crashed the boards on many occasions to extend possessions for Grand Premier Park. When smaller players switched out onto him he rolled for easy layups and “draws and kicks” to open teammates. To his advantage, this left opponents swiping and fouling.
Anderson Neach | Greater Purpose Athletics
Neach is a stealthy scoring guard who proves to be elusive off the ball and off the dribble. He wields a silky smooth release, and ball skills to create his own shot within the perimeter. The witty deep threat was a task to keep up within the half-court as well as in transition. Neach is a witty deep threat whose off-ball movement is next level ready.
Tishawn Clemmons | Team Illinois
Clemmons is a combo guard who can score it on all three levels of the floor. He’s a threat on and off the ball, and a focal point of the offensive attack for Team Illinois. The offensive threat; spaced the floor with timely threes via off-ball movement, hit rhythm threes using his secure handle and made next-level reads when the defense committed to him. Clemmons poured in 21 points vs a tough All-Area Basketball club.
Jabari Washington | Pride Basketball
Washington is a stocky guard who filled the scoring column in various ways. His size and speed were on display and proved to be a matchup nightmare. His offensive threats included; a crafty ball handle that enabled him to get downhill, next-level awareness and court vision, and a smooth and consistent jump shot given the space. The three-level scorer led the way for Pride Basketball.
Devin Craig | Grand Premier
Craig is a lights-out shooter who only needs a sliver of space to nail them from range. The steady sniper proved to have a high IQ during the times that teams attempted to run him off the line. He did well finding cutting teammates, knocking down steady mid-range jumpers, and securing skip passes to shooters when the defense was forced to rotate towards the ball. Craig’s ability to heat up when shooting threes in the corner was impactful for Grand Park Premier.
