AAC Day 3 Recap
Day 3 featured some new names to emerge on the scene at the All Academic Camp. The following stood out on the final day of games at Brandeis University:
Tommy ONeil (Vermont Academy, 2019)- The lefty has become more and more physical as his confidence grows. He initiates contact on both his drives and his post moves, and he grabbed tough, contested rebounds throughout camp.
Andrew Hartel (Cape Elizabeth HS, 2019)- Hartel first impressed at the Elite 75 Academic Experience in March. He is continued to improve, and excels in areas that bigs his size will need to concentrate on at the next level, such as rolling hard, setting good screens, and hedging hard on ball screens.
Greg Lawrence (Greens Farms, 2019)- The lefty finishes inside through contact & can elevate and finish above the rim in transition. He also showed an improved, more fluid shooting stroke and range out to the 3-point line.
Oliver Milledge (Greenwich HS, 2019)- The 6'8 post is a very good passer out of the post, both to the ball side and weak side. In the morning game on Day 3, he showed shooting range out to 17 feet, as well.
Brett Bischoping (Suffield Academy, 2019)- At 6'7, Bischoping consistently showed his willingness to fight for position inside. Whether it be boxing his opponent out or moving his feet to get deeper position on a post-up, the California native is not afraid of contact.
Pierce Pendergast (Bayport Bluepoint HS, 2020))- Pendergast is an intriguing prospect because of his bounce and length. He is smooth to the basket, and if he improves his jumper his stock amongst academic schools can really take off.
Elliot Harris (Cambridge Ridge & Latin, 2019)- The 6'2 guard has a compact shot and an efficient floor game. He doesn't try to do anything he can't do, but plays tough and with a little bit of an edge to him. He sees open driving lanes quickly and uses one move to get past his defender.
Sean Ingoglia (Salisbury, 2019)- The incoming Salisbury wing stands at 6'5 with broad shoulders and a good frame, but even more room to add more muscle. He has good ball skills in the open court, is physical, and works hard on the boards.
Zev Katz (Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, 2019)- The 6'2 guard plays with a lot of energy and is a solid all-around offensive player. He makes good use of his jab step, and has very good touch on his jumper (midrange and out to the 3-point line).
