Joe Davis

Josh Clyburn, a 6’7 PF of Victory Christian (NC), has a nice build, runs the floor well and is
more athletic than he shows. He also knocked down a three and a short turnaround jumper.

United Faith

Peter Jurkin, a 7’0 2012 C, was very impressive. He had a sensational game. Jurkin’s frontcourt
counterpart, 6’8 PF Hanner Perea was said to be a “30 million dollar Lottery pick walking
around” by a top high major assistant coach. If Perea was a 30 million lottery pick then Jurkin
looked the part of a hall of famer. All jokes aside, Jurkin played at another level. Jurkin is a super athletic shot blocker that runs the floor like a deer. One series, Jurkin had three blocks sprinted to the other end and hammered one home in Dwight Howard esque style. All game long he was active and involved in every possession.  Shaun Wiseman, Jurkin’s coach, informed me that Jurkin is his correct age and that being the case, he should have a shot to developing in a top 5 prospect in that class with repeat performances of such.

Hanner Perea, a 6’8 2012 PF of United Faith, had a solid game as well. Not matching the hype during the first day as I had hoped, he still looked great. Perea is a Columbia import that is very long and athletic. He is able to rebound the ball and push it up the court with 2-3 dribbles. He also showed a few nifty back to the basket moves. The second night he showed a nice jump hook as well as a drop step combo move to an authoritative slam. He played much better the second night.

Paris Roberts, a 6’3 2011 SG, is quick and a good passer. Roberts is a SG that deserves D1 interest and is solid role player for the D1 laden United Faith.

Allerick Freeman and Patrick Rooks, 2013 prospects for United Faith, both played major minutes for their squad. Freeman displayed a nice outside shot and a good understanding of the game for a young prospect while Rooks showed good speed in the open floor with the ball and the ability to finish at the rim in traffic. Rooks is an excellent passer that sees the floor well.

Kadeem Green, a 6’8 PF of United Faith and Missouri signee, also pitched in a solid effort. Green is a long and athletic prospect that should thrive under Missouri’s fast paced system. He fits the bill of being able to push the ball up the court and finish in transition.

Ian Miller, 6’1 2010 Florida State PG signee, was his usual self. He scores in bunches from all over the court and did well setting up his teammates.

Tony Parker, a 6’8 Miller Grove (GA) 2012 PF, has improved since last year. He showed a feathery touch, has an excellent frame and uses his body impressively while being able to run the floor pretty well for a guy his size. High Major Prospect.

Donte Williams, a 6’9 2010 PF of Miller Grove (GA), is another good athlete that runs the floor well, rebounds and is a good shot blocker.

Nemanja Mikic, a 6’8 2010 United Faith PF, is a long player that shot the ball very well from deep. He hit the three with great consistency and also showed the ability to pump fake and knock down the deep two, as well as come off screens and be a knockdown shooter. Has pretty good footwork and is a decent defender

Word of God

Joel Kindred, a 6’4 2010 wing, has very good ability scoring the ball on the break with his athleticism and finishing ability. His shot is not broke but it does need further refinement and is improving year over year. He will land at D1 level once the year is over.

CJ Leslie, a 6’8 2010 Combo forward, is super athletic and blocks everything. He had an off game the first night but mixed in a nice drop step dunk as well as showed off some of his guard skills on the perimeter. His shot seemed to be off but he normally is able to knock down a few jump shots a game. Some tend to disagree, but when CJ plays with High Emotion, as during his second game, he tends to be playing his best and will bring his team back. The same can be said with Xavier 2011 commit
Dezmine Wells. An assistant coach from the other team got into Dez’s ear and he went off for 10 point spurt all while letting the opposing coach know he was the root for the outburst.

Dezmine Wells, a 6’5 2011 SF Xavier commit, is built like a linebacker but is able to corral an impressive physique with superior athleticism between the lines. He played the point for Word of God for a good portion of the game and is a very active defender. Next step, developing a consistent jumper and he could be a top 10 player in his class.

Bishop Daniels, a 6’2 2011 SG, is an explosive leaper who seemed to be still recovering from a knee injury. He knocked down 2 three pointers which points to his improving outside shot. Daniels is a high major athlete with an improving skillset.

Jacob Lawson, a 6’7 2011 PF of Oak Ridge Military Academy, is a supreme athlete with tons of upside. He has a very good frame, runs the floor well and is at his best finishing in transition high above the rim. He hit a 17 foot jumper but other than that his offense seemed to be a bit raw. He was coming off an injury. Lawson seems like a good kid.

Javonte Mayner, a 6’1 Georgia State PG signee, is an excellent shooter, handles the ball well, is fast in the open court and employed a nice pull up in his game.

Anthony Stitt, a 6’0 PG from Butler HS (NC), is very quick guard that scores at the rim well and has a nice pull-up jump shot. Stitt’s cousin plays at Clemson.

Adonis Harrison, a 6’4 2010 athlete of South Gwinnett HS(GA), has an excellent motor and is a definite D1 athlete. He seems to be very raw but knocked down a few mid range jump shots. Said he was looking into JuCo.

Malcolm Mathews, a 6’8 2013 South Meck (NC) C, is very long and thin prospect who will be a player to follow if he can manage to progress player wise. He played major minutes for his high school squad. Matthews hands are average at best and he is very raw but he will show a flash here and there. Mathews is able to block a few shots here and there but alters many more.

David Moore, a 6’5 2012 prospect of South Meck (NC), is long and thin. Moore employed a nice turnaround hook in his arsenal.

Ryan Harrow, a 6’1 NC State PG signee, was his usual self. He displayed excellent handle, a knock down a few outside shots and showed his great passing savvy. He once employed the Larry Bird touch pass on the break. Looks as if he is getting stronger, he still needs to still bulk up some more. Harrow should be an immediate impact guy for Sidney Lowe and the Wolfpack.

Reggie Arceneaux, a 5’8 2011 PG of Olympic HS (NC), had a break out weekend. Throw size out of the picture, Arceneaux is a player. Arceneaux has a High Major game at the point guard spot if you throw size out the window. He is very quick, and an excellent passer that sees the floor very well. The well built point guard gets to the rim well but sometimes he tends to drive too deep into the teeth of the defense. Arceneaux gets anywhere on the floor he wants to and shot the ball well from deep over two days watching him, more so the second day than the first.

Gmitri Rice, a 6’1 2010 SG of Walton HS (GA), is a prospect with very good athleticism. Known to be very raw offensively, he knocked in 17 footer and a three. Great lineage from Glen Rice. Perhaps the stroke will come later.

Braylon Williams, a 6’3 2010 combo guard, is another athlete from Walton who has Division One potential. He has a good build and is a solid outside shooter.

Adrian Rodgers, a 6’3 SG of Centennial HS (GA) , is a quick guard who can knock down the three ball as well as hit the pull up jumper and pitch in a floater when needed. He has good handle and does not try to do too much.

Jeremy Burgess, a 6’4 SG of Centennial and Mercer signee, is a bigger wing that has a decent shot as well as good ability in getting to the basket.

Jeremy Ingram, a 6’3 2010 PG of East Meck, handles the ball pretty well, has good quickness and shot the ball pretty well from deep.

Jay Canty, a 6’5 Xavier 2010 SG Signee, flashed an array of drives and knocked in a 3. He has excellent potential as a wing at the next level.

Deandre Tillman, a 6’7 2010 PF of Queens Grant HS (NC), is a long lefty with nice touch. He is active on the glass and blocked several shots.

Donte Simmons, a 6’2 2013 SG of Olympic HS (NC), had a great looking stroke and played some solid minutes for his high School.

Griffin Pittman, a 6’1 2011 PG Queens Grant, is a D1 caliber point guard with good speed and quickness. He more than held his own in his matchup with Reggie Arceneaux.
