When it comes to young talent Texas continues to have some dudes and being able to see what they can do at such a young age is kind of crazy but that is what we are getting from this group of kids. They have some players that are athletes.
Team: Southern Assault
Name to Know
6’2 C Christian Bell
Probably one of the most dominant 6th graders in the country. He has the length as defenders that are tall themselves only go up to his chest. How about him in a BLOB play? Well, the team just throws it up and he scores the ball. Christian is a cheat code. The thing that I like about his game already is that he has great fundamentals. He keeps the ball high on catches and rebounds. He outlets the ball and he runs the floor. He spends a lot of time at the free-throw line and he gets buckets.
Tre has some wiggle to his game and you can sprinkle some crafty dribbling and finishing as well. He has a good rip and go and he gets to the rim quickly to finish or dump off some good passes. In the open floor he has some good change of directions he can go to as well as some hesi fakes and dribbles. Good looking outside jumper with a high release.
It is so nice to see this youngster with such good footwork. He knows how to change directions using great low and balanced dribbles, he is always under control and he is a steady hand out there. He is not afraid to mix it up and play physical. He can dribble really well as he displays his handle with both hands and often times he can go behind the back and work defenders going downhill. Mid range shots are where he hurts teams.
Superior athlete with a crazy burst of speed. The kid catches the ball and he shoots out like a bullet. He knows how to move without the basketball and he is a big time ball hawk on defense.
Future big time CG in Texas, He has the size to do damage in the post and on on strong physical drives and he also has the handle and guard skills out in the perimeter. He can finish with both hands on either side of the rim.
Another strong CG that can play all over the floor. He is zone buster in the middle catching and dishing and fidning open players as he scans the floor. If you do not put a body on him , he will find a way to get a board.
This team is killing it right now and if they stay together they will have so much chemistry and they are going to be some bad dudes when they come up.
