(BASKETBALL WAREHOUSE - LARGO, FL) Basketball WareThis was one of the most intense intimate workout camps I’ve intended. The talent from top to bottom was top notched. I was very impressed by the talent and the structure of the camp by Reginald Burke and his staff. This was a high intensity and well organize camp. The players seemed to bring it from the door.
Below is a breakdown of the camp attendees:
2020 Jamille Reynold Lakewood 6’10 240 PF/C
The big fella started slow but once he got motivated, he showed why Central Florida is excited about his commitment. He has very good athleticism and a great body. He’s punishing around the basketball and attacks the basket with authority. He showed he could pop out and knock down the three ball. He’s very active on the defensive end and contest everything in the paint. When he gets to college his game has a chance to really flourish.
2022 CJ Hawkins Jr. Berkeley Prep 6’6 200 WF
He’s a crafty lefty, with a good upside. He has a very good motor. I like his mid-range game and he’s a very efficient scorer around the basket. He still needs to work on his skill set. He’s also a very good student and a very high character kid.
2023 David Delancey Somerset Academy Pembroke Pines 6’4 168 CG
He showed advancement in his game and that he’s ready to play with big boys. He can handle the physicality and isn’t afraid to mix it up in the paint with big fellas. He’s still learning how to be a lead guard and this may have been his best showing for me at that position. He still needs to play with a better pace and stay out of trouble.
2021 Charles Crews jr Bayshore Christian School 6'3. 190 G
He’s a big physical guard that knows how to score. He’s more effective when putting pressure on the defense and getting to the cup. He can knock down the three ball, but sometimes settles to much on it. He played decent defense but with his size can be a lock down defender. He needs to continue working on his decision-making skills.
2021 Matthew Lentz Durant High School 6'6" 195 F
He’s long with a nice stroke and plays within himself. He played well last weekend, but not great. He seemed to be in and out the games. I like his potential and see him stay aggressive. He has a very nice ceiling, its up to him if he wants to reach it.
2021 Michael Trigg Seffner Christian 6’5 F
He may have been my favorite player in camp. I loved his work ethic and his motor. He’s a phenomenal athlete that plays with a reckless abandon. He stays on attack mode and will punish you at the rim. He can defend almost every position on the court. He definitely needs to work on his skillset. I was informed he’s also a high-level football player.
2021 Jaylen Wharton Durant High School 6'8" 170 F
He’s a little light in the seat, but I like his motor and how he ran the floor. He’s has a nice touch on his jumper and when open more then not knocked down the jumper. He must get tougher and get mix it up a little more.
2021 Modibo Sanogo Central Pointe 6’9 240 PF/C
The big fella got hurt, but before that you could see his promise. He runs the floor and understand the value of using his body and getting to his spot. He’s good round the basket and plays within himself. He must stay healthy and get in shape. He has a lot of potential, but we all know it’sabout developing that.
2023 Eiram Cuevas Central Pointe 6’3 170 G
He has the most important skill set that you need today. He can flat out shoot the ball. He has a sweet shot that even when his misses still looks good. When he put it on the floor more than not, he was successful. I would like to see him do that more. I love his pace and IQ. I like to see him be more aggressive on defense. The young man has the potential to be special.
2022 Anthony Davis Blake High school 6’4 206 G/F
He’s a skilled wing that plays better in the open court then a half court set. He played good on and off the ball defense. He filled the lane on the break and finish at the rim. He had a decent mid-range game, but struggled from deep. I really liked the energy he played with.
2022 Emanuel Sharp Blake High School 6’4 200 G
He is a flat-out scorer, that doesn’t look the part. He’s not a great athlete and doesn’t blow by you. He’s very crafty with the ball and plays with a great pace. He scores at all three levels and it’s hard to speed him up. He has no problem scoring in traffic and against much taller players. He has excellent court vision and drop dimes in traffic. He’s a good help defender, but I definitely like to see him play more aggressive on the ball.
2023 Tristan Gross Calvary Christian 6’2 140 G
He didn’t have a great camp shooting the ball, but having watched him a lot, I can tell you that’s not a norm. His stroke looked good but his shots just didn’t fall. I liked that he didn’t try force shots, knowing he was off. He must get stronger. Once that happens, with them having to honor his deep shot, he’ll be allowed to get to the cup and finish with contact.
2022 Joshua Watkins Brandon High 6’5 155 G/WF
I really liked his athleticism. He ran the floor like a greyhound and finished above the rim. He’s a very good rebounder from the wing and plays solid on ball defense. I really like how he played help defense. He definitely needs to work on his ball-handling and range on his jump-shot, for a chance to take his game to another level.
2021 Deon Brown Bayshore Christian School 6'2 170 G
He’s an undersized shooting guard that was very solid. He didn’t play great, but he made good plays on both ends. He knocked down timely shots and played solid defense.
2022 Tony Livingston Seffner Christmas Academy 6’6 245 F
This young man is very talented. He’s physical and moves well for his size. He scores at will around the basket and has a nice stroke on his jumper. He plays with an edge and sometime it works against him. If he can get his emotions in check and understand how to make his teammates better, he will have chance to be really good.
2023 Kjei Parker Kathleen Senior High School 6’ 180 G
I really like this young mans game. He played way beyond his years. He played with great pace and a sweet stroke. He made very good decision all camp. He played with a nice pace and a very high IQ. He should make an immediate impact on his high school team this season.
2021 Ramses Melendez 6’6 Central Pointe 175 W
I was very impressed by this young man. He can score at all three levels and is already blessed with NBA range. He can play off and, on the ball,and has very nice court vision. He has a real smooth silky type game. The one thing he has to do, is get stronger add a little physicality to his game. He may be the most underrated player in Florida.
This young man played well in spurts and was willing to compete with kids much older than him. He has decent handles and nice shot. He struggled at times but that was expected playing with kids much older than him.
