John Lucas IMSC 2021

Houston, TX – June 25, 2021 John Lucas Enterprise held his International Middle School Combine in Houston Texas. This event always attract really good young talent and this year there was no exception.

Most Outstanding Players

There were some good talent on display, however the most intriguing players were; 2025 6’4” SG Davion Hannah, Milwaukee Academy of Science (WI) who was arguably one of the best prospect in the gym. Hannah proved that he was above the rest of the competition all weekend. The 6’4” G/F showed an arsenal of skills and displayed it by scoring at all three levels. He has great vision and handles in the open court, to sum things up he is very skilled at this point in his process. Hannah checked a lot of boxes but there’s always work to be done. 2025 6’5” SG Hudson Greer, Lake Travis MS (TX) can give it to you in multiple ways; 3 ball, mid-range or dunks. One of the most skilled players in all of camp, Greer showed his offensive ability with a versatile mid-post game and unexpected bounce. He also showed his range on the perimeter disabling defenders making them play honest. He was able to take what was giving within the pace of the game. 2025 6’4” SG Shon Abaev, Miami Country Day (FL) was easily top 3 in the camp! His confidence to shoot the long ball made him very intriguing. Abaev is a big long guard who uses his size and shooting to be effective.  Would like to see him be more of a playmaker at times to keep the defense honest. Finally, we were very impressed with the way Abaev handled himself against the other players; he was not at all intimidated but showed he is amongst the top prospects in the country. 2025 6’10” Aliou Badara Diakite, Redemption Christian Academy (NY) is compressed with skill & talent! Still hasn’t reached his full potential yet but he showed flashes of what he will be. Diakite is not only long, agile and athletic but he’s able to finish strong at a high rate around the cup.  He also can handle the ball in the open court and get out in transition. Diakite is still raw in some areas but all the signs are there, he’s a definite prospect. 2025 6’6” F Sebastian Williams-Adams, St. John’s School (TX) displays size, length & a motor. He checks a lot of boxes at his age from post presence to rim protector. Adams is just scratching the surface, he showing he will be a force to be reckoned in the future. He showed his shot blocking ability and touch around the rim. Love what he brings to the game. 2025 6’2” G Kohlman Dutton, Woodcreek (TX) once in rhythm his abilities showed. He soaked up contact while finishing, defended either guard positions & started transition off his offensive rebounding. Dutton can get you buckets and his ability to create for teammates is significant. He just has to stay in attack mode from start to finish.
