The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase 6th Grade Division had a ton of young talent. It gave us a great chance to take a look into the future. Here is our last look at the top performers from this grade level.
Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 3
Kyndal Riley Guard (Wilmington, DE) – Riley is a big guard that is a mismatch problem. Defensively he rebounds and blocks shots all game long. Offensively he can dribble, pass and score. Kyndal rips the rebound down and pushes the rock leading the break seemingly always making the right decision with the ball. He is like Lebron James at the 6th grade level and was one of the Top 3 players in the showcase. By the way Riley is really from the Class of 2028.
Tahir Connor Forward (Elizabeth, NJ) – Connor is a long forward that affects the game by playing to his strengths. He rebounds the ball and keeps it high so that smaller guards cannot try and grab the ball as he is finding his outlet. He scores on a lot of offensive rebound put backs. He showed the ability to put the ball on the ground and attack the rim. His next level of development will be to extend his range on his jump shot.
Jett Harrison Guard (Philadelphia, PA) – Harrison is a big athletic guard that has an advanced feel for the game. When he plays you can tell that he is examining the floor with his high basketball IQ and the game seems to come easy to him. Jett can do a little bit of everything on the floor right now. He is a combo guard that makes winning plays and as he continues to develop, we expect him to be one of the better guards in the region for years to come especially since he is a 5th Grader (Class of 2028).
Jeremiah Camara Guard (Reading, PA) – Camara is a big strong guard that is at his best attacking the rim. He has a good mid-range jumper of the dribble. His ball handling skills are good enough that he can be a secondary ball handler for his team. As he continues to extend his range out to the 3-point line he will be a mismatch problem for opposing defenses.
Wilson Udo Guard (Westchester, PA) – Wilson is a high IQ player that makes the right play to help his team win. He can handle the ball and we like his passing ability and unselfishness. Udo finished at a high percentage around the rim either getting all the way to the rim or using his floater game when a shot blocker was protecting the paint.
