Orlando Super Live Recap Part 1
May 2, 2017
Last weekend in Orlando, FL we got a moment to check out some of the top performers at the 2017 Super Live. This is part 1 of 2; here we’ll review what we saw from the upper class men.2018 PF 6’7″ Dandre Johnson, Florida Press – Johnson was one of the best post presence in the event, he was just too agile and big to be controlled at times at the Super Live. He showed his offensive game displaying his ability with extra passes in the post and he was at his best when running the floor. His Jump shot was decent and actual post play was ok. However, he should be a bit more patient with plays when posting to free up shooters and draw double teams at times. Johnson looks to be a good low to mid-major big.
2017 SG 6’5″ Dwaine Williams, The Nations Basketball – Williams can find ways to produce offensively. He found ways to expose teams defenses with his scoring abilities. From pull up jumpers, plays in transition and defense to offense plays, you must respect Williams’ talents. Overall, he had a strong weekend and we’ll look for a commitment soon. Williams just had a official visit with D2 Adelphi.
2017 5’11” PG Jordan Samuels, College Bound Ballers – Samuels was the best looking PG in the event. The way he attacks his defenders and how he stays in competitive mode was impressive. A true pass-first point guard, Samuels can make others around him better. His overall play led us to pay attention. At 5’11”, his size could be a factor in his recruitment for high division schools, but NAIA and D3 should see a great value on what Samuels can bring to a program. He has an offer from Palm Beach St. plus interest from Clinton(NY) and Southern Maine.
2017 6’4″ SG Shaq Ferrol, Chobee Nation – This is my 2nd viewing of Ferrol, he was a standout at Super Live. The Chobee Nation guard was one of the best scorers at the event. He made statements over the weekend, going for 22 pts against the Florida Suns. He always made motions to the basket and teams made sure he was guarded. Ferrol Attacked the rim, he was consistent and reliable.
2017 6’3″ G/F Demetrius Clark, Chobee Nation– With Coach McGreal of Penn State-Altoona watching, Clark put on a performance dropping 22pts against the Florida Suns. He did damage in many spots on the floor, showed how productive he could be in many stat categories. He made a impressive imprint on a few coaches that were there to see him.Player we also liked:2017 Eddie Davis, The Nations Basketball2018 PG Josh Candelario, MTE2017 SG Damien Marquez, MTE2018 K.
