Player Evaluation

Aikulola, a 5’1 prospect from Texas and part of the class of 2029, had one of the best attitudes on the court for his team and really worked hard. There is a lot of potential to his game and it will be exciting to see how he continues to develop as a player. He had a good overall offensive game, scoring in a variety of ways, scoring well around defenders and getting to the basket, and really playing hard on both ends of the ball. Scrappy young man that left it all out there. Next in his development, he can continue to work on his movement without the ball and continue to make progression in his game. Coach said “Joshua is a very nice player with a whole lot of potential and upside. Very coachable and a great teammate.”

Player Evaluation

Castro, a 5’0 prospect from Florida and part of the class of 2028, has a solid package to his game as a guard and a good base and mindset for the game. He operated better inside the arc and showing his mid-range game more but also was strong as an on-ball defense, getting into defenders and creating havoc as well as transition defense. Moved really well without the ball in his hands. Next in his development, Castro can continue to work on his ability to finish, his handles and making them stronger, and making a bigger impact on the boards. Coach Cooper said “You are a guard with a nice catch and shoot package. I would like to see you shoot off the dribble more and also be more aggressive in shotting the basketball when you have an open shot. Be assertive as a point guard and get your teammates involved as well.”

Player Evaluation

Cecil, a 5’8 prospect from Australia and part of the class of 2028, was one of the top players at the camp for his age and he showed why. Plays with such a feel and IQ for the game and can be a dynamic playmaker on the court.

Coach Crenshaw said “Jayden has a very high ceiling. Great basketball IQ, he was far and above one of the best players in his division. I would like to see a little more rotation on his shot and continue to work on operating against players with length. His is a fantastic playmaker, sees the floor really well, and knows how to be effective.  He has a high ceiling, and it was great coaching him.”

Player Evaluation

Williams, 4’10 prospect from California, has a great attitude for the game and that immediately stood out to his coaches. He is a young player that will only continue to add more to his game and develop, and will do so because of his attitude and work ethic. Williams though is a quick guard that was able to make his impact more on the defensive side of the ball, being aggressive in transition and a pest on the ball. He always played with maximum effort while he was on the court. Next in his development, Williams can continue to work on his overall offensive skillset, adding more and developing his shot, and being more aggressive on the offensive end. Coach Harris said “I love your attitude. More time in the gym and continuing to watch basketball will only help your game. Keep working and your time will come.”

Player Evaluation

Oliveros, a 5’1 prospect from Texas, really shined in his role as a complementary player and doing what is needed for his team.  He was effective when he wasn’t in the spotlight, playing off his teammates, doing what is needed in areas, and being strong with making good passes, finding his teammates, making his presence felt defensively, and doing all the little things as well. Next in his development, Oliveros can continue to work on his overall scoring capabilities and his ball-handling. Coach Jackson said “James does very well if he is not the primary or secondary scorer. He plays solid defense, is a good passer, and attacks the boards. He has a good attitude but needs to be more vocal. He does not nee to be the primary ball-handler and really excels in being that glue-guy on the court for his team.”

Next in his development, he can continue to work on his transition defense, moving more without the ball, and the use of his off hand. Coach Bush said “Learn to control pace but also to create in more and different angles. Talking more to help get your players in position. Taking the role of leadership on your shoulders. Transition defense and learning matchups will help you go further. Also, learn to use the mid-range. Work on 1-dribble pull-ups.”

Player Evaluation

Miller, a 4’10 prospect from Texas, was a true energy type guy that coaches love to have on their team.  He has a quick first step that allowed him to get by defenders and make plays. He was also explosive in penetrating the defense and making his impact felt in on-ball defense, off-ball defense, and in transition defense. Read the floor well and was aware throughout and tried to make those hustle plays as well. Next in his development, Miller can continue to work on moving without the ball better as well as continuing to fine-tune his shot. Coach Reynoso said “Your energy on defense, it is where you really stood out.  Offensively, your first step is quick and explosive. Work on finishing around the rim more and work on improving your jumper as well.  Need to continue to be active in help side defense and staying even with the ball.  On offense as well, continue to move without the ball and how to read the defense.”

Player Evaluation

Lewis, a 4’0 prospect from South Carolina and part of the class of 2031, is a young prospect that excelled in areas and should only continue to develop. His areas of strengths were his team play and mentality, his attitude towards the game, and his effort. He also shined in areas that involved his on the ball defense, showcasing his passing abilities, and his quickness on the court. Coach Brewster said “Mason has heart and effort which is something that can’t be coached. He listens well and makes suggested adjustments immediately. He is very young and still learning the concepts of the game, as he can continue to work on his ball handling, his shooting form, and his passing and catching. Becoming more confident in these areas will only boost his overall confidence as a player. He is super quick on the court but can continue to work on his footwork and defensive stance.”
