Day 2 Standouts at Future All-American Camp

Another day down here at Future All-American Camp and we are just beginning to see how special this camp is. Earlier today, players were assigned to their drafted teams; the team they will be playing on all week. With that we began game play, and with game play we saw guys shine. Here’s our list:

Armoni Sexton | Paterson Charter (NJ) | 2018
Sexton is a long and slender wing that can put the ball in the basket, wherever he shoots it from. It doesn’t matter if he’s driving baseline for a layup or spotting up from beyond the three-point line, if Sexton is shooting it, odds are the balls going in.

Louis King | Roselle Catholic (NJ) | 2018 
The slender forward was tough to stop around the basket, using an array of post moves to find his way though the paint. Paired with two other Roselle Catholic Lions in Nazreon Reid and Atiba Taylor, King looked very comfortable in working down low and getting his points the hard way.

Tyler Plummer | St Andrews College (CAN) | 2017
Plummer was one of the most exciting players on the floor in his morning game. Plummer is a tough guard who scores all over the court. He uses his athleticism to attack the paint and the rim, but also showed he’s not just a driver by taking and making threes.

Mychael Paulo | Father Henry Carr (CAN) | 2017
Paulo showed a tendency to attack the rim and, for the most part, it worked out in his favor. The guard was able to hit a number of running layups and get around contact to the basket, putting together a nice scoring display.

Donald Flores | Abraham Lincoln | 2017
Donald Flores is really fun to watch play. The Abraham Lincoln prospect is a lightning quick guard that pushes the tempo for his team. Flores is at his best when he is getting into the paint, something he does often. He wowed us today with several tough finishes around the basket. Not many players were able to stay in front of Flores today

Jaiyer Jinwright | Newark East Side (NJ) | 2017
When Jinwright starts feeling it from deep, it’s tough to get him out of a rhythm. He showed as much throughout the day, preferring to walk the perimeter and wait for open looks to drain for three.

Scott Hitchon | Anderson | 2017
Hitchon is a versatile forward. Although he’s 6’9, he shows he has the ability to play at the wing sometimes. He has a very good jump shot and does not need much space to get his shot off. But he’s not just a big that can stretch the floor. He also has some athleticism to his game that allows him to slash to the rim well and play above the rim.

Kesean Tracey | Lincoln Elementary (NY) | 2021
No, Tracey isn’t the tallest player on the court. Actually, he might be the smallest at camp but that doesn’t stop him from going after the opposition. Rocking AI-like cornrows and a headband, Tracey displays some sweet handles for a player in the class of 2021.

Ejike Obinna | Virginia Academy | 2017
The big man from Nigeria was an absolute force down low, using his large frame to bully his way to the basket. With an offer from George Mason already in hand, once his footwork and lowpost offense truly come along with his size he’ll be pushing that high-major line.

David Beatty | Archbishop Carroll | 2017
Beatty is a quick and athletic guard, who spends a lot of time pushing the tempo on defenders. He has continued to impress this summer, showing how capable he is of getting to the paint every time down the floor. Even when defenders sag off and beg him to take a jump shot, he can still find a way to get in. He also finishes well, using his body to withstand any contact for tough baskets or at the very least, draw a foul.

AJ McNish | Henry Carr | 2017
McNish already looks older than his actual age thanks to his physical stature. He’s about 6’3 and strong. For a player who will play either a 2 or 3 spot, his strength allows him to bully his way to the basket. Chances are, when AJ puts his head down, he’s getting to the basket. There also a high chance that he’s finishing the play with a powerful slam. The kid has great elevation.

Tre Wood | St. John’s College HS | 2018
Tre Wood could be one of the best guards in camp, let alone in the class of 2018. His handle for his age is exceptional. Seeing him play with the ball is truly a spectacle to watch. Of all the things Wood did today, passing was probably his strongest asset. He found teammates regardless of where they were, and where he was, on the court. A point guard with a great handle and terrific vision, Wood will grow into a great player.

Melo Eggleston | St. Francis | 2017
The ceiling is a high one for Melo; the 6’8 rising sophomore is loaded with potential. Eggleston is a presence on both ends of the floor. Defensively he is a great rim protector already. If he’s not blocking a shot he’s definitely altering it and making it tough for guys to score in the paint. He’s also mobile for his size. He showed a number of times today the ability to start the fast break himself by dribbling it up court. The more he continues to polish his game on both ends, the more eyes will begin to follow him.

Hamidou Diallo | Putnam Science Academy (CT) | 2017
One of the highest risers in the early stages of camp, Diallo was one of the most consistently watched players on Day Two. Between a number of big dunks and a nice shooting touch from beyond the arc, Diallo is turning heads each time he steps on the court.

Quade Green | Neumann Goretti | 2017
What didn’t Quade Green do on the floor today? He showed he could facilitate, showed he could defend and certainly showed he could score, and in every which way. Green had 30 or more in all three games today. He showed toughness taking it into the paint and finishing, showed a nice stroke from three, but the most impressive move he has in his repertoire is the dribble hesitation into a step back jumper. Tough shot? Absolutely. Did he make it consistently? Absolutely he did. Quade put on a show on day two and showed everyone here that he is a top player in the class of 2017.
