Day 2: 2019 John Lucas Elite Invitational Camp

Houston, TX – BAH had a full schedule last weekend with so many events going on in different states, we still managed to get to Houston, TX for the John Lucas Elite Invitational.  We’ve always looked forward to this weekend more than any others because of the drills, talent level, quality information provided by John Lucas, and the overall camp atmosphere.  As usual, we spent time watching and analyzing prospects, highlighting names and compounding notes for the future.  Based on our evaluations of campers on Day 2 this is what we saw:

JT Thor

2020 6’10” SF JT Thor, Norcross HS (GA) – This past summer, the Huntington, WV native joined the recent reclassifying frenzy, moving up and making  himself available for the 2020 college ranks.  This top caliber prospect holds offers from Florida, Arizona, KU, Maryland, UCLA, LSU, Kentucky and several other big programs.

After some breath taking plays, the thin but physical forward made it known he was one if not the best in the gym that day. Thor who is skillfully gifted stills needs to get stronger which most players need but this will help him absorb punishment in the paint. Thor is a legit force from the wing and especially in transition. The athletic prospect who’s known for high level finishes, can also stretch the floor and make plays off the dribble.  On Oct 4, 2019 Thor officially visits Kansas University, which is one of his final 5 schools(KU, OSU, UCLA, Georgia and Kentucky).

Daimion Collins

Atlanta, TX 6’9’ center, Daimion Collins of the 2021 class works extremely hard. Collins upside is tremendously off the charts and has so much room to add on to his game.   The Texas native, Collins plays for Team Griffin’s Nike EYBL team.  The long armed prospect has shown he has capabilities to block shots, finish at the rim and run in transition.  At this moment, Collins is pretty laid back on the floor and speaks with his game.  He plays pick and role situations well for a center and besides his natural talents, he is equipped with tools to be a really respectable prospect.   I see why Collins as people getting down to Texas.  look for a special high school season this year.
