Top 8 Performers:
Malik Channer 2014 Strawberry Crest PG 6-0 200
May have been the best player in the gym. Solid build and very elusive with the ball. He showed great control in his drills, looked very composed in 5 on 5 play and a very very humble young man. He should be signed to a school real soon!
Brian Powers 2015 J.W. Mitchell High school PG 6-2 172
This is a scrappy player…wow. Good mid-range shooter. Good IQ and runs the floor well.
Anthony Gamble 2014 Newsome SG 6’3” 175
Gamble should have a phenomenal season this year at Newsome HS. He has good size for a SG and knows how to finish in the lane. Good up-side!
Lawrence Watt 2015 Mitchell High School SG 6-4 185
He may have dunked every ball he touched! High flyer and runs the floor well.
Dontez Hardy 2015 Middleton SG 6’0” 179
Under-sized to SG but makes up for in his athletic ability. He really can finish guys!
Kajuan Jones 2015 Robinson PG 5’5” 128
Fast, Fast, Fast!!! Ball handling was superb. Shows a lot of heart on the court against any competition!
Sam Harris 2014 Tampa Catholic PG 5’10” 167
This young man comes back to Breakdown to show he improved on his game. Since our last viewing, his quickness, defensive eye and hand coordination is off the chart. Good size, more controlled and gets to the basket.
