DMV Preps Selects Hunter Dickinson & Terrance Williams as Co-MVPs of the Coach Francis Classic
Hunter Dickinson is a true center with great size and tremendous upside. He has drastically improved at running the floor and his mobility is tremendous for a 7-footer. He has excellent hands and finishes drop off passes and clear paths above the rim now.
He has become an explosive and powerful finisher with both hands around the basket and his good hands allow him to catch tough passes and turn them into baskets; his board and full court dribble that finished with the dunk was a highlight of the weekend and featured in Finest Magazine.
We also noticed Dickerson has developed a good left shoulder hook with a high release and is gradually developing his right shoulder as well. He is an excellent area rebounder especially on the offensive end and is also a above average on ball shot blocker.
Physically he is becoming more and more immovable in the paint as his frame continues to fill out. Hunter is also a big man who takes to coaching and has shown great improvement over the course of his young career as a result DMV Preps is proud to name Hunter Dickerson (Team Uptown) Co-MVP of the 2016 Coach Francis Classic where he dropped 18-points, to go along with 10-boards, 2-assist, 1-block on 9-14 shooting even knocking down a few from distance!
What can be said about Terrance Williams that hasn’t been said; Williams is quickly developing a chiseled frame and physique through hard work and has a great combination of power and finesse again through hard work you are seeing vastly improve agility, quickness, and fast-twitch action.
He proved he can step out and nail the 3-point shot or go inside and impose his will. He's explosive around the rim dunking over 6’9 centers in game action proves that and he uses his thick frame and some unique hang times on drives to convert in traffic. He is a terrific rebounder in traffic due to his instincts and power and the front court is still wear he bread is buttered but you see as a rising freshman what is in store for the next 4-years.
Always remember we are talking about a top national prospect in the frontcourt; the wing development will be an added versatility piece that will make him one of the most versatile in the DMV. His work ethic no doubt lead us to believe that ultimately the high level inside/outside combination he will become will have many college coaches intrigued and calling for years to come – special kid and special player any program would be lucky to have.
DMV Preps is proud to name Terrance Williams (Team Uptown) Co-MVP of the 2016 Coach Francis Classic coming in with 18-points, 10-rebounds, on 6-10 shooting.
