It's pretty early in these prospects careers but there was a lot of young talent at the NYBL Finals this weekend to track for the future. Here are some of the top performers.
2023 6-3 W Marvel Allen (Ball 4 Lyfe)
Long wing played with high energy on both ends. Has solid ball skills, helping him score in transition and vas very good attacking close-outs. Showed good stroke with some range. Top three 2023's I saw this weekend.
2023 6-4 WF Nate Sasser (Nightryders) Long, athletic slasher was active on glass, using his length and bounce to snag boards in traffic. Showed good footwork on block and not tentative when attacking the rim. Streaky shooter right now but stroke looks good and will only get better. One of the top 7th graders in NYBL.
2022 6-6 SF Gregg Glenn ( Nightryders) Another long wing with solid with bounce, ability to post and is a matchup problem for bigs with his ability to score off the bounce or post-up smaller wings.
2022 5-11 G Jacari and Danari Henderson (Nightryders) My first time watching the Henderson's and was told one was better than the other but that wasn't the case on Sunday. Against a good Georgia Stars team, I couldn't tell the diffetence, both played well. Both are athletic, knocked down deep ball and are good defenders.
2022 6-2 PG Dylan Hunter (Georgia Stars) Floor general, has good speed, that seems to have extra gear downhill and is a solid finisher.
2022 6-3 SG Robert Cowherd (Georgia Stars) Shooter with lentgh, range and quick release. He did a good job of getting out on break where he was a consistent finisher In transition. Good rebounder.
2023 6-4 W Elijah Fisher (Grassroots Elite Canada) Playing on two teams was definitely rough on Fisher but he never relented. He does what most young players won't do that are guards....hits the block for buckets. Fisher is long, patient and athletic, making him a problem on the post. He is very good in transition and is tough to guard when jumper is clicking. One of the top 2023's in EYBL
2022 5-9 PG Kole Scott (Grassroots Elite Canada) Speedy guard with handles. Scott did a nice job of using hesitation dribble to consistently beat his defender to the paint where he scored or found his teammates for baskets.
2022 6-4 F D'ante Bass (Savannah Unified) Very athletic lefry forward whose raw offensivly but plays with HIGH energy. He was tough on glass and protected paint. He did show makeable jumper from 15-feet and was solid passer from high post.
2022 6-3 W Kaleb Walters (SOH Elite)
Very similar player to Allen. Long, can make shots, including multiple treys and can get to the paint and finish. Played with good energy on both ends.
2022 6-3 PG Jaden Bradley (B-Maze Elite) Top 8th grader here and an Underclassman All-American Alumni, Bradley who usually plays 16U and plays well, is at his best probing and finding teammates for easy baskets. At this young age he knows how to move bodies with the dribble to create passing angles. Like that he doesn't shirk his duties as a rebounder. Very good floater game and improving shooter.
