Player Evaluation

James, a 5’3 prospect from Texas, had a solid overall showing but will need to continue to work on his game to improve down the road. His bright spots on the floor with his game was getting to his spots and knocking down mid-range shots. He also had good early mechanics and a good release, just don’t rush it. He will need to continue to add more pieces to his game to be a dynamic player and continue to work on your handles and defense. Coach Kenny said “Become a leader. Must do your job and do what coach wants in order to lead. Always play hard and together. Be more assertive on the court. Enjoyed coaching you this week.”

Player Evaluation

Julian, a 5’3 prospect from Australia and part of the class of 2031, is a player that showed flashes of what he could be down the road but still has to continue to work on his overall feel and improve in areas. As far as his strengths though, he was able to finish strong around the basket and effectively, while also getting on the glass on both ends. He moved well without the ball, never stayed in one spot, and had a good feel with his back to the basket. Coach Harris said “Julian is a high energy player. He has a decent jumper and can finish at the rim. Sometimes, he gets a little selfish and needs to make the right reads. He needs to continue to work on his transition defense and on the ball defense. He has a great athletic ability and is still growing; great attitude as well.”

Player Evaluation

Camden Bulger, a prospect from Charleston, West Virginia and part of the class of 2029, is a big guard with talent, so it will be interesting to see how he continues to develop his overall skill set down the road. As far as his strengths, Bulger excelled in showing strong range in his game and excelling in catch and shoot situations, playing well off the ball. But he was also able to finish when the opportunities were there, using his big frame to his advantage and rebounding well for his position to create extra opportunities. Good solid framework with his game. Next in his development, he can continue to improve his ability to move without the ball, his back to the basket moves, footwork, quickness and his handles. Coach said “You are a talented player who is still getting to know the game and how to play along the perimeter. Improving shot from deep. Continue to work on your ball handling and improve your shooting from outside even more.  Not afraid to be effective in the post.”
