Basketball Spotlight MDC 12U Top Performers Part 1 (By "Squirrel The World")

Luther Muhammad Helped KSK Win It All  

The Basketball Spotlight 12U Division was loaded with top ball players and squad. Here’s our first report of the top performers provided by our new evaluator “Squirrel The World”. 

MDC 12U Top Performers Part 1 

Luther Muhammad Guard (KSK)- A power combo guard in the mode of a Russell Westbrook already has the physicality to dominate opponents on the defensive end. Gets to the basket at will, once his jump shot becomes polished his stock will be as high as Apple.
Will Yarborough Guard (KSK)- Dynamic with the ball in his hands, this speedy combo guard is a very hard cover for most of his age. Great outside shot and plays an excellent floor game at such a young age. Already understands backing the ball out and getting his team set. Will is going to be a valuable asset to any team he’s on with his heady play. 

Razeyah Surrell Forward (Playtime)- True PF can make any team better with his consistency around the rim and rebounding. While most kids his age wait for the ball to come to him Mr. Surrell goes and gets it. This long arm rebound machine well keep coaches smiling as second chance shots became second nature with his relentless approach to attacking the glass.
Jamal Whittlesey Forward (ECE)- With a rare combination of speed and power Jamal could easily go around a kid or simply just go over them. He already has the physique of a high school junior and the where with all to know how to use it. This kid is just scratching the surface of his true position and potential. 

Chico Whyte Forward (Wall 2 Wall)- Excellent hands finishes around the basket with ease. Great feel for help side defense, when this kid matures, his off the ball defense will remind coaches of a young Theo Ratliff with the offensive fundamentals of any Georgetown center.
Judah McIntyre Guard (New Rens)- Excellent floor general, super quick with the ball in his hands. A pure pass first pg that commands the attention from his teammates and dictates the tempo at all times. This young man is a perfect extension for any coach. He possesses the leadership of a Mateen Cleaves and the bball IQ OF a Steve Nash. 

Nayshon Kane Guard (New Rens)- His smooth moves to the basket exhibits excellent body control. Knows how to draw and finish with contact. His unassuming athletic ability low’s his opponents to sleep and his quick first step puts his defender at a disadvantage. Reminds me of a young Billy Owens.
Dorian Hardy Forward (Riverside)- Being strong with the ball under the rim allows young Mr. Hardy to be an excellent finisher. Displays great court awareness as to when to kick the ball out and get solid re-post position after being double teamed. He has the touch of a two guard and the power of a big man once this kid finds his way ….. Sky’s the limit 

Jared Kimbrough Forward (Jersey Force)- Good touch polished around the basket, excellent rebounder and shot blocker. Jared uses a great lower base to power up on smaller competition. Cerebral with his post moves, this 12 year old will be backing down a big man near you in no time.
