All Academic Camp - Day 2 AM Recap
As coaches from all over the country continued to file in to Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, the action picked up in the morning session. The following players stood out in the morning of the second day of camp:
Owen De Graff (Choate, 2017)- De Graff is a lefty stretch-4 who shoots extremely well. A very smart player, De Graff was able to come up with tough rebounds in traffic for his squad today, as well. He should have a big season for the Middlesex Magic this summer & Choate next winter.
Isaiah Godwin (Brooks School, 2017)- The point guard got to the hoop at will in this morning's game. Playing for Wright Way Skills this summer, Godwin displayed a series of acrobatic finishes at the rim and the ability to change direction in mid-air. He loves to push the tempo and is always in attack-mode.
Thomas Shaughnessy (Needham HS, 2018)- Coming off a very strong spring, Shaughnessy is making the claim to be one of the toughest guards in New England. He played the role of a distributor today, but he is poised to have a big summer with the Middlesex Magic.
Malik Pouncey (Commonwealth Academy, 2017)- Pouncey is a shooter who gets a lot of arc on his shot and has a high release point. He showed the ability to finish in different ways on his drives to the basket.
Thomas Binelli (Bergen Catholic HS, 2017)- The NJ resident has a compact jumper that he can get off against anyone due to his high release point. At 6'8, he is someone the defense has to locate early, or he can really get it going from deep.
Miles Gordon (Kent School, 2017)- Gordon is a guard who makes the extra pass. It is evident he has a good feel & understanding for the game, and it shows by him making his teammates better. Gordon will be a big part of a Kent School squad that is looking to have a big winter in the NEPSAC.
Francis Uzorh (Cushing Academy, 2017)- Uzorh is an active forward who was a beast on the boards this morning. He is relentless & tough in his pursuit of both defensive and offensive rebounds. The Cushing big man also has the feel to kick the ball back out for an open 3-pointer for one of his teammates instead of taking a bad shot in traffic.
Adam Hess (West Lake HS, 2017)- Another player making the trip from California, Hess has made shots from all over the court all tournament so far. He's able to get his shot off without much separation.
Javaris Hill (Lynn English HS, 2018)- Hill fights inside and is active on the offensive glass. He is a tough matchup inside because of the tenacity that he plays with. Hill also blocked a couple shots from the weak side in his morning game.
Chenbin Huang (West Lake HS, 2017)- The 6'3 guard does a little bit of everything. He runs the floor well and can finish with either hand on either side of the rim. He also knocked down a couple of deep 3's.
