Player Evaluation

Furney, a 6’1 prospect from Indiana and part of the class of 2024, is a player that was able to shine in certain situations but also has room to develop as a player in others. Where he was able to shine was his ability to play off the ball and look for his shot. Good release and use of his off hand, as well as making good reads and moving his feet well. Furney has good speed to his game and was such a competitor on the boards; very impressive in that area. Next in his development, he can continue to work on his range and shooting off the dribble, as well as his off-ball defense. Coach Hankins said “Jayden is a great player, just needs a little more patience with decision-making. Try and score more in the mid-range and work on your back pivot movement. Know your personnel. Great rebounder and team player.”

Player Evaluation

Julien, a 6’3 prospect from Utah and part of the class of 2025, is a forward that had some strong moments all throughout the camp and really came out to compete, while showing and developing more of his game. At his size, he had his moments of not only playing and bringing a great attitude and willingness to learn, but also was strong in using his size to attack the boards, play hard on defense in transition, and moving well without the ball. Next in his development, Julien will need to continue to work on his overall feel for the game, as well as creating for others. Coach Wilson said “Julien has a good frame for his age and one to build upon more. He has a great attitude for the game. The areas that he can continue to improve on is his ability to be more active on both sides of the ball and being aware of what is going on the court more. He also can help get others involved more, which would help his overall feel for the game.”

Player Evaluation

Carpenter, a 6’1 prospect from Indiana and part of the class of 2025, was tremendous throughout the camp and was one of the top prospects at the camp; get familiar with his name because you could be hearing it more. There weren’t too many faults in his game, especially with a player at his size and ability to do so much on the court.  Carpenter showed a mature game along with a great feel/IQ, as well as his smooth offensive game in scoring and using his size on the defensive end. There are still a few areas he can continue to improve such as his footwork and his transition defense, but Carpenter was quite strong throughout. Coach King said “Mason, you are a great player who can score and get others involved but my thing is when you are not shooting it well as you like, don’t second guess yourself, take the open shot. Be confident with them and trust your skill, your hard work in the gym, and any good coach will live with the results.”

Player Evaluation

Wright, a 6’1 prospect from Indiana and part of the class of 2025, showcased how effective he can be off the ball and get to his spots, excelling as a catch and shoot type of player. Whether it was inside the arc or from three, Wright got to his spots and showed his confidence in knocking down shots with a smooth release and good mechanics. He also had very good court awareness to go with his game. Next in his development, he can continue to improve his ability to put the ball more on the deck and create as well as his overall impact on the defensive end. Coach Kidd said “Your spot up jump shooting game is good; work on shooting off the dribble more and finishing with your off hand. Focus in more on the defensive side and learn how to work your man to your help. Develop your body to bang better in the paint with opponents as well.”

Player Evaluation

Henderson, who is a 5’7 prospect from Texas and part of the class of 2025, was the definition of a player improving throughout the weekend and was ultimately one of the top players for his team at the end of the weekend.  He left it all out there on the floor, as he really showcased his hustle throughout on both ends of the floor as well as really be an excellent shooter from all levels.  He excelled with his shooting mechanics, his use of his off hand, his ability to penetrate and finish, and moving well without the ball.  Next in his development, Henderson could continue to work on his quickness and presence on the defensive end. Coach OJ Matthews said “Jonathan actually progressed each game. At one point, he was my best player. He has the ability to improve even more!  Henderson could continue to be more vocal and continue to get stronger, but college ball should be an option for him for what we saw.”

Player Evaluation

Wilkas, as 6’2 prospect from Indiana and part of the class of 2026, started out slow but really impressed towards the end of the season as everything started to come together for the young man. With his size at an early age, he was able to find ways to be effective, making strong passes and being a team-player, attacking the glass and creating second-chance opportunities, or moving without the ball and finding opportunities to score. Next in his development, he can continue to work on expanding his range on his shot as well as his overall impact on the defensive side of the ball. Coach Lofton said “You can be a really good high school player. You have good size and although most of your shots didn’t fall, you have a solid platform for shooting. You have to continue to work on your defense. I love your team energy as you are; very positive with your peers.”

Player Evaluation

Gerges, a 6’1 prospect from California and part of the class of 2026, brought good size to his position and it will be interesting to see how he grows and develops, to see what position he could ultimately play.  He was strong in several areas, whether it was stepping out and showing his shot-making ability with range or mixing it up and getting downhill to finish at the basket. He really was able to operate from so many levels offensively and continued to have a strong impact on the defensive end as well. Next in his development, Gerges can continue to work on his off hand usage and continue to fine-tune his overall game. Coach Allen said “I believe you are one of the top 9th graders at the camp. You showed that you can score, rebound, and pass the basketball. It was a joy coaching you at the camp.”

Player Evaluation

Ursihch, a 6’3 prospect from California and part of the class of 2023, was another glue-type guy on the team; someone that could do the little things on the floor, mix it up and fill up the stat sheet, and do the dirty things that are needed for the team. He played with a great attitude and embraced his role, but showed to have a smooth release on his shot, was able to create and make his defenders respect getting inside, played hard on the defensive end, and attacked the boards. Next in his development, Ursich can continue to work on his shooting off the dribble and in catch and shoot situations, as well as moving more without the ball. Coach Betts said “Glue guy, two-way player who can guard multiple players and hit corner threes. Needs to become a more consistent catch and shoot player. Cut and screen more instead of being another body on offense.”
