ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.- On day two of the Nike Team Florida Fall Workout and Exposure Camp the sophomores and freshmen hit the court. A handful of high major prospects impressed, including freshman guard Kasey Hill.
Kasey Hill 6-foot point guard Mount Dora (Fla.) Bible School
An explosive point guard who excels at getting to the basket, Hill displayed exquisite body control on a number of high level finishes. He prefers to attack the rim at this point as his outside shot has less than a confident release, but over his career his range and confidence is likely to improve. There are questions about Hill's size and leadership abilities as a point guard, but there is no denying that he will be a high level scorer. As to the other questions, time will tell.
A promising prospect, Christian has a live and long body to go along with a developing skill package. As expected with a freshman, his shot needs refinement, but he has the ability to score in most any way from posting up to shooting from behind the arc. Christian is also an active defender and rebounder.
As an explosive an athlete as was in the gym, Croaker had a number of high level finishes at the rim. He gets tremendous lift on his jumper and has the potential to be a terrific midrange scorer off the dribble. He will also be a threat from behind the arc.
Quinten Payne 6-foot-3 small forward Fort Myers (Fla.) Bishop Verot HS
The younger brother of Iowa freshman Cully Payne, Quinten already has an offer from the Hawkeyes. Longer and more athletic than his older brother, Quinten made a number of athletic plays around the rim. He is an aggressive slasher to the basket and also showed promise as an outside shooter.
Clayton was the most productive low post player at the event. He knows how to use all of his 230-pounds and has nimble feet. He repeatedly finished against contact and also displayed a comfort level with the basketball facing the basket. How much he grows will likely determine what level he ends up as a basketball prospect.
Brendan Mooney 6-foot-5 power forward Altamonte Springs (Fla.) Lake Brantley HS
Looking an awful lot like Adam Morrison, Mooney ran the floor well and knocked down three-point shots. He has the makings of a high major face up four man.
Glen Feidanga 6-foot-6 power forward Gainesville (Fla.) The Rock HS
One of the top prospects at the event, Feidanga has an impressive combination of length and skill as a power forward who appears to still be growing. Quick to the basketball, Feidanga has sure hands and finished with control on the move. In the open court he showed some promising ball handling skills.
Mitchell was one of the longest and athletic prospects at the event. Over the course of the event, he found a comfort level and began to exert himself offensively. Like Feidanga, he was quick to the basketball and scored on the move.
