Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2015 Top Power Forwards

Trevaughn Wilkerson Dominated The Super Showcase

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase concluded on Saturday. We gave you some top performers from the rising 7th Grade class, now it’s time to look into the Class of 2015. We are going to get things started with the power forwards.

Super Showcase Top Power Forwards (Class 2015)

Usual Suspects

Trevaughn Wilkerson (Sicklerville, NJ)- Wilkerson was by far the best post player in this event. He dominated each game out and even showed his grit in the big time matchup versus Horace Spencer. His touch near the hoop and his footwork has shown improvement. Now he’s needs to work on his face up game while extending his range.

Horace Spencer (Montgomery, PA)- Spencer is still a little raw but his size and athleticism cannot be ignored. He towers for rebounds and rejections. On the offensive end Horace needs to develop his post moves, touch and foot work. His potential is enormous but the skill work will be required to reach it.

Timothy Delaney (Mullica Hill, NJ)- Delaney had his moments of dominance. His skill set is there and once he matures physically he will be a real problem for opponents. The scary thing is that he stands 6’6 now but has more inches to grow.

Fresh Faces

Roy Kane Jr. (Norwalk, CT)- Kane is very long and can finish off plays. He’s still in the development stage but could be a good prospect because of his length and athleticism. I think we will be hearing a lot from this kid in years to come.

Terquin Mott (Philadelphia, PA)- Mott is a strong body that maneuvers well in traffic. He probably will end up moving to the wing which means his ball handling will need to improve. We will be paying close attention to him this year on the circuit.

Darren James (Dayton, NJ)- James best basketball days are ahead of him. He stands 6’5 but once he grows into his legs he might finish close to 6’9. Right now he needs to work on skill development and getting stronger.
