Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2016 Top Combo Guards

Jamir Harris Performed Well On The Big Stage

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase wrapped up yesterday and it was a dandy. We will be continuing our Class of 2016 coverage with a look at the top combo guards.

Super Showcase Top Combo Guards (Class 2016)

Usual Suspects

Jamir Harris (Piscataway, NJ)- I’ve found Jamir’s true position which is a combo guard. He showed some explosive play yesterday by attacking off the bounce and going coast to coast. He blasted North Carolina for 22 markers. I think his ball handling will improve with on the job training. He should round out as a serious scoring guard down the road.

Raykem Felder (Brooklyn, NY)- The Bully muscled his way to some easy buckets and knocked down a few deep shots. He did get into a little trouble while penetrating too deep into the lane. I think he will eventually move to the point and he showed some floor general instincts when passing the rock.

Keith Washington (Sicklerville, NJ)- Washington glided to the bucket for points and hit his pull up off the dribble. Keith has improved his ball handling and seems to always be in attack mode. Before going to the high school level he might have to transition to more of a pass first type.

Brad Hawkins (Camden, NJ)- Camden is known for putting out tough guards and Hawkins might be the next in line. This kid defends the rock well and has a strong body that absorbs contact when finishing. Brad is a bona fide scorer. He averaged close to 15 points a contest.

Sa’eed Nelson (Pleasantville, NJ)- Nelson showed good promise chipping in 19 points in his final outing. It’s just amazing how he gets through the teeth of the defense before scoring a difficult shot. His leaping ability and athleticism is rare for his size.

Chris Lykes (Mitchellville, MD)- Lykes is a hard nose defender and even tries to snatch a rebound or two. On offense he hits the lane like a battle rocket and knows how to finish among the giants. Pound for pound he’s one of the toughest guards around.

Tyler Jones (Lawrenceville, NJ)- Jones has good size which allows him to see over the defense. I like his strong frame and his ability to score from different areas. He should be one of the top guards in the Mercer County area for years to come. I like his potential and smooth demeanor.

Fresh Faces

Alex Leder (Bethesda, MD)- We all know Leder can shoot but he showed me some improved ball handling and a lot of toughness in the fire. He plays the game with a lot of passion and has a good basketball IQ. I look forward on seeing a lot more of him soon.

Coby Davis (Upper Marlboro, MD)- Davis impressed me with his ability to score from the outside and on drives. He got into a little trouble trying to dribble through traps but he made up for by finishing off plays. He had a good showing.

Randolph Hunter (Lancaster, PA)- This is another tough guard from the Quaker State. He plays either guard spot and goes very hard on the defensive end. He’s extremely quick with the pill and a capable play maker.

Robinson Normil (Egg Harbor, NJ)- Robinson looked comfortable in this environment. I like how he uses the floater when driving the lane and the speed he shows in the open floor. He will definitely become a point guard soon.
