The PrepHoops Oregon Freshman Showcase took place on Sunday and our coverage of the event continues. This week, we will take a look at our scouting notes for each individual roster, breaking down this huge crop of talent from around the Pacific Northwest, player-by-player. Here’s a look at Team Two.
Calm and cool presence handling the ball playing at the point. Made good decisions as you would expect from a coach’s son and didn’t force things when they weren’t there. Shot wasn’t falling in the action we watched but took good shots and had good form on his release. Played with confidence and like he belonged on the floor.
(2027 South Medford)
Lefty that played bigger than his listed height of six feet. Wasn’t afraid of going in and up against bigger players and was particularly good at breaking out in transition and finishing around the basket. Brought the intangibles of being a great teammate and was always cheering and encouraging them on.
Carter Morgan (2027 Camas)
Hustle guy in the context of the event. Put in effort on both ends of the floor which often led to garbage points offensively or turnovers on the defensive end. Solid ball-handler and passer who looked to keep the ball moving and played good team ball throughout.
Jack Fournier (2027 Mountain View-WA)
Has the physical maturity of an upperclassman and used that to his advantage. Overpowered defenders in the paint for points and was difficult to stop in transition. Decent looking outside jumper. Game is a bit unorthodox but gets the job done as he was one of the top bucket getters on the day.
(2027 West Linn)
One of the most productive players in the event, averaging a double-double in points and rebounds. Ran the floor extremely well and finished with multiple dunks in transition. Got the majority of his baskets inside but showed the ability to face the basket, create off the dribble, and hit mid-range jumpers. Long and lanky and will be a force at the varsity level with added strength and experience.
Long, strong, athletic frame, moves well on the court. Didn’t get a lot of opportunities to handle the ball but looked to get in positions where he could catch the rock and make a play, especially in transition. Used his 6-foot-4 height effectively on the boards.
Heady point guard that mainly looked to set up teammates at the event in the games we watched. Strong frame and used it to get into the lane and draw the defense. Good hustle on the defensive end.
Consummate floor leader that earned our MVP nod. Could get to the basket and score whenever he wanted to, but balanced that out with sharp passing, finding open teammates for opportunities. Didn’t shoot from the outside much but honestly didn’t need to. Tremendous communicator on both ends of the floor.
