NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.- Rivals.com got a good look at the Nike underclassmen playing in the 16-U division at the final session of the EYBL. Here is a look at some of the prospects that caught our attention.
Tyler Ennis (2013, CIA Bounce)
One of the top point guards in his class, Ennis has an exquisite feel for the position. He isn't an explosive athlete, but he changes pace and plays in between the beats. Beyond his feel for timely passing, Ennis is also a knockdown shooter and a terrific finisher of tough layups.
James Young (2013, The Family)
A well-put-together, 6-foot-6 left-handed wing, Young is quite an impressive prospect. He made some plays off the dribble and did some work on the glass, but the strength of his game looked to be his three-point shooting ability.
E.C. Matthews (2013, The Family)
Conversely to Young, Matthews did his best work attacking the rim off the dribble. He was elusive in the open court, but also effective attacking in the half court game.
Kendrick Nunn(2013, Meanstreets)
A terrific player and competitor, Nunn has that herky-jerky, left-handed game that is difficult to defend. He looked good shooting the ball from behind the arc but is most dangerous turning the corner and attacking the basket.
Devon Hall (2014, Boo Williams)
A physically impressive young prospect at around 6 feet 4, Hall made a variety of plays from his wing position. The left-hander looked comfortable shooting the ball, attacking the basket and passing off the dribble.
Jordan Bell (2013, California Supreme)
Athletic and 6-7, Bell is a promising small forward prospect. He took his game to the basket and put a lot of pressure on the defense as a slasher and an offensive rebounder. His length is a great asset on the defensive end as well.
Tahj Shamsid-Deen (2013, Atlanta Knicks)
Shamsid-Deen is small in stature but does he ever have a lot of game. The lefty has great command of the point guard position and moves easily between being a dynamic scorer and a clever distributor.
Nate Mason (2014, Atlanta Knicks)
Mason isn't the penetrate and kick player that his teammate is, but he is a smooth shooting combo guard with a feel for scoring.
JaQuel Richmond (2014, CP3 All Stars)
One of the better-looking point guards in the 2014 class, Richmond is a playmaking threat and a quality shooter.
Greg McClinton (2013, CP3 All Stars)
A bouncy athlete, McClinton has a knack for getting to the ball on both ends of the court. He has the makings of being a dangerous slasher from the wing as well.
Kelly Oubre (2014, Houston Hoops)
Another lefty, Oubre is a powerfully built wing at 6-5. He was strong on the boards, defended and looked to be a scoring threat.
Deshawn Munson (2013, St. Louis Eagles)
Munson appears to be the 2013 version of Dezmine Wells. Not a shooter, Munson is a physically dominant slasher who can finish and dish in the interior. He isn't the leaper that Wells is, but Munson's feel for passing the ball on the move is a special trait for such a powerful driver.
Nick King (2013, Memphis YOMCA)
King's game is still very much in the development stage, but he is oozing with long term potential. He has a broad skill set, length and athleticism.
Johnathan Williams III (2013, Memphis YOMCA)
Williams was playing out of position at the five, but the slender combo forward battled in the post and on the boards. He is at his best, however, making plays off the dribble where he can take advantage of his court vision and feel as a passer.
Joshua Hart (2013, Team Takeover)
A physical wing, Hart attacks the basket with a authority and can finish with touch. He is an impressive prospect with a solid all-around game.
