Sundays are always good days for plenty of basketball and there was a ton of it at Hoop Exchange Showcase. With team and individual showcase going simultaneously you had to keep your eyes open. Here is what we saw.
Trent Robertson Durant HS
Showed his capabilities to knock down the 3 ball and defend the perimeter.
Marcus Hill Armwood HS
Such a soft touch around the rim. He reminds you that the mid-range jumper is not a lost art.
Devin Harris Jesuit HS
Big body PG with good body control. his frame and quick first step gets him to the basket with ease but would like to see him shoot the outside jumper a bit more.
Prince Ali Pines Charter HS
Good Player with a high ceiling for growth. Very allusive with the ball can switch speed tempo well. He Deserves to be ranked.
Haanif Cheatham Pines Charter HS
Solid combo guard with great transition moves to the basket. Just being a soph., he will continue to amaze collegiate scouts.
Samson Nnaji Tampa Bay Christian
This guy is a BEAST!!!! Strong, active and dominant in the paint. A man among boys, a no-nonsense player that can spin off big men with no problem.
Daishon Smith Eagles View Academy
Nice jumper, quick and athletic. More of a SG guard in a PG body(6’0″) but it makes no mistakes about his abilities.
Alex Owens Oldsmar Christian
True Big Fella….. He definitely knows where the Block is and how to use it.
We also liked:
Malik Channer Strawberry Crest HS
Can run a team, and handles pressure well. Knocks down the open jump shot.
Lance Tajada Blanche Ely HS
Eric Turner Eastside HS
Alain Allard Osceola HS
Morris Marshall Columbia HS
Becoming a household name in the area. Shows he can compete at a college level. Started off slow but picked up his game play as the day continued. He will blow by his defender and create for others.
Cj Mcgill Wharton HS
He’s fast and aggressive for a PG. Nice Lefty Jump shot.
