The fact that Hawkins has gradually increased his skill set the last few times I’ve seen him, leads me to believe that more improvement is in store. His biggest area of improvement has been his finishing ability, as he has shown some advanced skill. Hawkins is good with straight line strong hand finishes as well as 1-2’s in transition.
Carr is a natural rim protector, who plays with good timing. Offensively his is a bit raw, however he has shown the ability to be effective catching and finishing in transition as well as when he is the low post. If he continues to develop his back to the basket game, expect his stock to continue to rise.
Brown is a unique offensive weapon, who seems to add a little more to his skill set every time I see him. Offensively he displays a strong handle, complete with several COD’s. With his ability to get anywhere on the floor, the guard can create for himself. More of a scoring guard, as he develops down into more of a PG, look for his stock to rise.
When looking at young bigs, it’s always important to start from the feet up. Shitu moves fluidly and is a dedicated rim runner. He is active on both backboards, having developed into one of the better rebounders in his class. His physical growth along with his signature skill make him one of Utah’s top stockrisers.

Hennix is highly skilled guard that has some advanced handle and finishing ability. In addition to his skill set he already has a strong frame, complete with lean muscle. He understands where to attack on the floor, and has already shown that he is capable of finishing through contact.
I only saw Campaign play once this summer however he was really, really good. I was impressed with his IQ, as the hybrid forward was able to facilitate from the high post effectively. he understands when to pass, the ball and when he needs to make the outside shot. his ability to play a point forward type will definitely raise his future stock.
