Future All-American: Fab Frosh/Super Soph Day 1 Standouts

Day 1 of Future All American was primarily about identifying and understanding the level of talent in attendance. After registration, campers were divided into respective teams, allowing coaches to evaluate the talent on display and fairly assemble teams for the rest of the week’s play.

Here are some of the standouts from Day 1:

Cole Anthony (Archbishop Molloy ’19):  At 6-foot-2, Cole Anthony possesses an exciting blend of explosiveness to go along with a crafty handle and an improving jump shot. Anthony is best in transition, where he’s nearly impossible to defend. Anthony is a vicious dunker in the open court, who also protects the rim very well for a guard.

Jack Cavanaugh (Pope John XXIII ’19): Jack Cavanaugh mixed it up very nicely on the offensive end. The bouncy, 6-foot-4 guard recorded a poster dunk. Cavanaugh hit a three from the catch, and showcased some slick ball-handling skills which enabled him to consistently get into the paint where he finished efficiently in traffic.

Che Evans (Dulaney ’20): 6-foot-6 shooting guard Che Evans showed signs of brilliance on both ends of the court during the first day of action. Evans, who showed good timing when contesting shots at the rim, is a very instinctive defender who has a nose for the ball. Offensively, he showed the ability to handle pressure, hit shots from the perimeter, and constantly finished around the rim.

Noah Hutchins (Park ’19): One of the more intriguing guard prospects of the day, Noah Hutchins was a standout in a variety of areas. The 6-foot guard showcased big time athleticism to go along with a nice feel for the game, and the ability to consistently hit shots from long range.

Mikeal Jones (Gerard College ’20): 6-foot-7 big man Mikeal Jones looked to rip down the rim whenever he could get the opportunity. The rising freshman has excellent hands, plays a mature brand of basketball, and makes strong runs to the rim.

Mekhi Long (St. Mary’s Ryken ’19): Versatile 6-foot-6 forward Mekhi Long showed a strong work ethic on day 1. The lanky rising sophomore demonstrated the ability to handle the ball, rebound out of his area, and finish in the paint ambidextrously. Long guarded multiple positions, and actively contested shots at the rim.
