Gerard Mungo – “Whoodie” is an explosive combo-guard that can get anywhere he wants off the dribble. He is much more scorer than facilitator, but he affects the game in multiple ways. He is slippery while maneuvering his way to the basket and he has a variety of ways of finishing. He is quite potent in the mid-range area with the use of the two-dribble pull-up or he has that burst and length to get to the rim. Plays with the heart of a champion and is the consummate teammate. We believe that Gerard is still an under the radar prospects and he has played with elite talent for years. Due to his frame, athleticism, he must be considered major talent.
Anwar Gill – Gill is developing into an aggressive scorer with high skill and excellent athletic ability. With terrific size for the wing; he is shown the ability knocks down the three point shots with consistency on the break or catch and using screening action in the half court. When he puts the ball on the floor he can get all the way to the rim and score or find an open player. He has really good length and a great basketball body that should continue to fill out. His skill level is what separates him and the chip on the shoulder that tell him he will be one of the best when it’s all said and done.
Austin Allison – The 2nd 2020 playing up in the event; Allison is a true shooting guard that can make jumpers to the arc and straight line mid-range pull ups. He has a smooth confident stroke and is a good ball handler and passer as well. He must add strength, rebound more and become a better at getting his own shot but Allison has great upside and is capable of getting hot and putting up excellent numbers. A nice looking stroke and is very confident in his ability to make open shots and pull ups over defenders. Austin does a good job of running the wing on the break, coming off screen and spacing to the open area on dribble penetration where he is shot ready on the catch. Allison also has a good basketball IQ and can deliver the ball to an open teammate when he draws a second defender. He is a good straight line ball handler as well who competes and plays with toughness.
Jordan Hairston – This is a big time player who's managed to fly somewhat below the national radar. Loyal kid so he's stuck with his AAU team and teammates when he could have starred elsewhere. A competitive fire burns strong and the thinking here is that he's a Top prospect in the area now and long-term is more than realistic, impact point guard and sure-fire all-league potential. There's lots to like about Hairston; has size, speed, strength and a diverse offensive game to augment his court vision and natural playmaking abilities. A good, not great 3-point shooter, Jordan uses his speed to create chances off the bounce. His pull-up jump shot is a big weapon. As a creator, he easily gets into the lane and will finish or find shooters. Improving leader and shows savvy enough to dive to the post and abuse guards when its advantageous. Intelligent young man on and off the court and it shows in his play. Extremely important for his position is the handle and he owns a very unique and tight one.
Malik Anderson – A point guard prospect that has great upside. He has spectacular court vision combined with a high level of athleticism and a non-stop motor that is most apparent on the defensive end. He is shifty with the ball inside the arc splitting defenders and finishing with either hand at the rim or feeding the open man. Standing at 6’0 h he plays bigger than his height and does a good job of probing defenses and pinpointing his pass to set up a score or shooting a floater or mid-range pull-up. Has the potential/skill to be a scoring one but also the vision and IQ to be a big time facilitator. His drive game, passing ability, and versatility make Anderson a top prospect in 2019 and a major talent to watch.
Makhel Mitchell - While Makhel’s body and skill set continue to develop at a rapid rate, his long term potential and upside are undeniable. He has all the physical intangibles (extraordinarily long arms, strength, and improving bounce) scouts look for in a high-level prospect. He is an innate scorer who can work off the dribble out the 3-point line; but also play back to the basket and middle game basketball. In addition, he had a number of high-level finishes through contact while slashing to the basket off the bounce. He possesses a strong frame that continues to stretch out which includes big hands and feet that are not done growing. His physical tools are becoming elite status and he is still growing into his body. Versatility and ability to create his own shot off the dribble at his size make him unique in his class. His handle is a weapon and we just don't see that often with players at his age and size. He can be a facilitator at times with his increased understanding of the game. Add to the mix a steady rebounder that shows a nose for the ball coming off the glass.
