2018 E1T1 Nike Premier Showcase

The 2018 E1T1 Nike Premier Showcase hosted some of the best rising talents in Florida. The Prep Insiders got our first look at some future potential prospects and we’ve profiled some of the event standouts, as there was an absolute surplus of guards in attendance. The depth of backcourt talent was absolutely off the charts, literally some players will have their chance on becoming legitimate prospects and more than a few have a chance to compete for a scholarship before it’s all said and done. Here’s a look at some of the players that made an impression:

Top Potential Prospects:

2024 6’5” Jayden Williams, Oak Soul (FL)– While a variety of different players rose to the occasion, Jayden Williams stood out the most, not only scoring points but putting together a number of high level plays.

An effective forward in the making with a variety of positive attributes, Williams displays a number of potential weapons that will help his growth. First and foremost, he plays hard and approaches the game with the right attitude. His handle and shooting stroke are both good and he has some natural craftiness about him too.

2023 6’3” Kevon Call, Orangewood Christian (FL) – Standing at 6”3’ Call is a big, agile combo-guard that plays on or off the ball. He’s plays with absolutely no fear, he competes and with future growth in height he will be tough to handle. He plays with an aggressive style and is strong has an OX!
Finishes through contact as he regularly did throughout the day, a few plays he was able to highlight his ability to impact the game on both ends.

2024 5’8” Julian Clarke, Orlando Christian Prep (FL) This guard is highly skilled with the ball in his hands at a young age. He has cross-overs, combination moves and a smooth stroke off pull up jump shots. Clarke easily broke defenders down off the dribble but still has to work on getting all the way to the rim. The OCP guard has good talent, he can easily be that player you shouldn’t forget. Clarke could become a high level player in a couple of years.

Standouts:

2025 5’4” Jalen Reece, Lockhart MS (FL) – This young 6th grade guard is a offensive workhorse who can make defenders uncomfortable trying to keep up with him. Reece showed a decent handle, good IQ and ability to knock down the open or contested three ball.

2023 5’8” Rolijah Hardy, McKeel Academy (FL) – made a viewing impact on us by displaying a good instinct to find scoring opportunities. Hardy is a tough competitor who impacted the games on both ends of the floor. His ability to create off the dribble with use of speed was impressive.

2023 6’1” Eiram Cuevas, Central Pointe Christian Academy (FL) has an unbelievable work ethic. Cuevas is a skilled offensive player with an excellent offensive feel for the game beyond his years. He already has the IQ, very coachable and a nice shooting stroke.

2023 6’3” Harvey Wilson, Corbett Preparatory (FL) – Wilson was one of the toughest players in the field. He got after it on both ends. The squared shouldered Wilson showed skill, got after balls, displayed abilities to handle the ball with limited turnovers.

2023 6’3” Sean Stewart, Lake Highland Prep (FL) – was able to get virtually anywhere he wanted on the floor. Stewart has great tools to become a good wing player. He’s a solid player and with added aspects to his game like finding sweet spots offensively, it will help take his game to the next level.
