Top Performers(No Order):

Tyson WardTyson Ward  Jr.  6’1”  CG  Tampa Prep:  Showed much improvement since last year.  Ward has grown about 3″ and looks very aggressive offensively.  Ward, a lefty was able to break defenders down and give himself separation with his ball handling skills.  Looking forward to watching him grow as a leader on the court.  Lots of upside!

RJ PalmerRJ Palmer Sr.  6’5”  SG  Wharton:  Gifted prospect with lots of energy and athleticism.  Palmer’s rebounding skills helped him to initiate the fast break and finish above the rim in transition.

Lawrence Watt  Sr.  6’4”  Mitchell:  A versatile player and good decision maker.  Played well within his game and he wasn’t scared to attack the opposition.  Very athletic with a nice mid-range jumper.  He showed a lot of energy during drill sets.

David JonesDavid Jones Jr. 6’1” Leto:   Efficient PG.  Under the Radar kid with tons of talent.  Shows balance, a skill set and was crafty in the open court.  Jones was a surprise talent. Keep an eye on this guy!

Maurice Moore  Sr.  6’4”  Jefferson:  Good player and a competitor.  A hard guard for defenders because of his size.  Gets into the lane and likes the pull-up jump shot.  Moore is continuing to develop has a player.  Becoming a better player off the ball will be his challenge.
