Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp 7th Grade Top Performers Part 3
Gavin Murphy Guard (Connecticut)- Murphy is known for his shooting ability which was on display but we saw some other intangibles that caught our attention. His ball handling helped him create space for himself and plays for teammates. I loved his poise and willingness to take charge in the game. He stepped up big on this stage.
Adisa Molton Guard (Ohio)- The Ohioan showed his quarterbacking skills in a shoot first atmosphere. His craftiness and basketball IQ helps get anywhere on the floor. He understands spacing and how to stay out of traps. His drive, draw and dish game will keep future coaches smiling for ear to ear.
Rashad McCormick Forward (North Carolina)- McCormick is oozing with potential and should reach it once he adds some strength. He has the mindset and length to make plays but his body isn’t strong enough to finish off every play his mind sets out to. But this is a plus in his bag because once everything comes together it should be a real problem. I like his aggressive approach and willingness to make offensive plays off the bounce.
Akil Watson Forward (New York)- Watson is a wing that’s oozing with potential. He can put in on the floor and create from the wing position. He has enough handle to get past smaller defenders and score in traffic. He has some good court vision and finishing ability. He’s a prospect to really keep an eye on near future.
Caleb Crawford Guard (New York)- You have to love this kid’s heart during this weekend. He was playing with an injury and still stepped up to give it his all. He showed scoring prowess despite not having all his explosiveness. He’s just a natural ball player at heart.
Benjamin Lyttle-Murrain (New York)- Benjamin is a strong point guard that looks his best going downhill. Once he squares his shoulders and attacks his extremely difficult to slow down on this level. He also possesses some point guard instincts that allows him to complete plays after breaking through the frontline.
Chris White Jr. Guard (New Jersey)- White has some razzle dazzle in his game when it comes to breaking down defenders. He has a good hesitation move combined with a deep crossover. When he gets pass the first line of defense he scores at the tin or with a mean pull up jumper. He was an impressive fresh face.
