All-Academic Camp - Day 2 AM Recap
With the NCAA restructuring the recruiting calendar for the summer months, the All Academic Camp remains a staple on the calendar for high academic student-athletes and coaches. Located at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, the All Academic Camp welcomed more than 400 campers to be seen by over 100 of the most prestigious Division II & III colleges and universities in the country.
We will have updates here on New England Recruiting Report all weekend, along with live updates on Twitter and Instagram at @NERRHoops and @AllAcademicCamp
The following student-athletes shined on Saturday morning of the AAC:
Darryl Brooks II (Winchendon School, 2020)- Brooks is a physical lead guard who stay slow & explodes out of his dribble move to go by defenders. His physicality gets him to the foul line quite a bit. His quick hands were on display on the defensive end, causing disruption all over the floor.
Max Mitchell (Notre Dame- Fairfield, 2020)- Looking noticeably slimmer, Mitchell shot at a high level in his morning game set. His improved figure has him moving quicker & more fluid, and look for a spike in his recruitment because of it.
Parker Stone (Salisbury School, 2020)- Stone hits shots from inside out, on the move, and off the bounce. Being able to hit shots while moving in different directions is a key for any high school player transitioning to the college game. Stone also moves very well laterally and has a strong upper body.
Spencer Aronson (Catholic Memorial, 2020)- Aronson was in control, played at a good pace, and drilled 3's for the second straight game. One of the best shot-makers in the field, Aronson shoots with confidence every time and always thinks it's going in.
Jackson Leone (Darien HS, 2020)- Leone is a shooter who has developed into a more-than-capable driver because he is always under control. He plays off two feet in the lane, and can deliver the basketball where it needs to be. He gets his feet set in transition and is ready to shoot when the pass arrives.
Jack Staiti (Rivers School, 2020)- Staiti is a strong wing with broad shoulders who is still able to maneuver his frame inside and finish around (and sometimes through) defenders. He has several Euro steps that he uses depending on how the defense is playing him.
Carter Dummett (St. George's School, 2020)- A versatile wing who can post up or play the perimeter, Dummett's footwork on his pull-up has improved as a part of the expansion in his game.
Jayden Dummett (St. George's School, 2020)- The taller of the Dummett brothers, Jayden runs the floor exceptionally well and establishes early position. His game is more inside-oriented, but his post moves make him a threat to score inside whenever he touches the ball.
Dylan Both (Johnson Perry Christian, 2020)- Making the trip from Georgia, the big wing is tough inside. He is a shot-blocker on defense who is not afraid to challenge shots at the rim, and finishes when he gets the ball on the low block on offense.
Trace Gotham (St. Sebastian's School, 2020)- Long and lanky, the 6'5 Gotham continued his strong play from last week's Elite 75 and helped his stock among college coaches. Armed with sneaky bounce, Gotham finished a couple of hook shots on the move with his left hand.
Eli Feay (Fairfield Warde, 2020)- Standing at 6'6 with a longer wingspan than his height, Feay excels on the offensive glass. He keeps the ball high so the defense cannot swipe at it, and goes right back up for the finish with a quick second jump.
Gabriel Franklin (Hunter College HS, 2020)- Coming from Brooklyn, Franklin played as hard as anyone in the early game sets today. His handle is tight and is a good decision-maker, but his motor and ability to cut without the basketball stood out to several college coaches in attendance.
Joseph Manfredl (Regis HS, 2020)- The 6'4 Staten Island product has a compact stroke, gets his feet down quickly, and lets it fire. He was deadly from the corners in his morning game set.
