Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2016 Top Forwards

"Hail" Ceasar Adim Shined At The Super Showcase

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase took place today and it was a huge hit. We have loads of material to cover and we look forward to profiling the participants. First, let’s take a look at the loaded 2016 Class and begin with the forwards.

Super Showcase Top Forwards (Class 2016)

Usual Suspects

Ceasar Adim (Boston, MA)- “Hail” Ceasar was totally dominant during this event. He exploded through the lane and finished easy at the tin. Adim is very comfortable pushing the rock now and switching directions on a dime. His final two games he posted 22 points and 24 markers respectfully.

Terrell Turner (New York, NY)- Turner might be the most improved player in the region. Today he displayed his ability to run the floor and finish. He averaged 18 points an outing and near 10 rebounds. He had a great showing at this primetime event.

Nwanacho Nwana (White Plains, NY)- Nwana charged the basket very strong and under control. He's so quick off his feet and it allows him to sky over taller post players. His motor is very high and that’s something that coaches on every level love. This kid is all heart.

Khalir Johnson (Wilmington, DE)- Johnson was the tallest player in this age group and he used it to his advantage. His scored near the basket and blocked a few shots. His offensive game is still developing but in a few years his name should ring bells in Delaware.

Christian Ford (Hamilton, NJ)- Ford got the chance to handle the rock a lot and he looked fine. He was able to attack from the baseline and score in transition. Once he gets his outside shot a little better he will be a legit wing player. I like his potential.

Jakeem Sturgis (Beacon, NY)- Sturgis was one the best athletes in the building. He’s very active on the floor but can get into a little trouble over dribbling. He’s good at getting out on the break and playing recover defense. He’s an energy player.

Fresh Faces

Jordan Haywood (Spring Valley, NY)- Haywood played good defense on Adim in game one and also chipped in on the other end. He’s a matchup problem for some of the taller forwards because of his quickness. I think his forward days are numbered.

Kwame Camon (Alexandria, VA)- Camon muscled his way to points and rebounds. The southpaw is a hungry rebounder and pounded the glass all day. His turnaround has good touch but he should work on extending his range for the future. Developing more ball handling skills also could help out his stock.

Stay tune as other forwards from this class will receive individual profiles.
