Future All American Day 2 Top Performers

IMG_3429

Reading, PA– Another day, another group of players who showed huge upside. Check out the list of players who were top performers from Monday.

 

Rodrique Massenat | Roselle Catholic | 2018

Massenat went head-to-head with fellow New Jersey native and high-major prospect Luther Mohammad on Day 2 of FAA camp. The cousin of former Drexel star Frantz Massenat held his own against the high-motored Mohammad. Massenat is a 6-foot-2 guard that gets up and down the floor very well – his defensive toughness and dribble-drive ability were on full display on Day 2.
Eric Ayala | Putnam Science | 2018
With Ayala reclassifying to the Class of 2018, it allows the former Sanford stud more time to develop his jumpshot and defense. The 6-foot-2 point guard, now headed to Putnam Science (CT), displayed fantastic ball-handling and finished near the rim consistently. Ayala has high-major offers, and after a busy summer with WE-R 1 and the U16 FIBA Championships in Puerto Rico. Finishing his summer here at Future All-American camp, Ayala is certainly a name to watch as he progresses up in New England.
 
Seth Pinkney | Archbishop Wood | 2018
The first thing that’s noticeable about Pinkney is clearly his height. Standing at 6-foot-10, the Archbishop Wood big man just separates himself from the rest – literally. Pinkney is a naturally prolific rebounder and put-back scorer, that has allowed him to dominate, at times, during Future All-American camp. There’s little debate that Pinkney, given his age and potential, will able to add a consistent jumper and post-play dominance to his loaded arsenal.
 
Tyree Pickron |Archbishop Wood | 2018
Pickron has had a fantastic summer, opening the eyes of many college coaches and scouts that are starting to glance at 2018 players. Also at Archbishop Wood, the Team Final Black standout is one of those players that just work hard whenever they’re on the actual court. At Hoop Group’s Future All-American camp, Pickron has shown that his ball skills and guard play have caught up with Division-1 body and athleticism. He should be an interesting one to watch as he progresses his mid-range game throughout his sophomore season.

Emmanuel Umoffia | Putnam Science Academy | 2018

Umoffia had a great Day Two of camp with his rim protecting ability and finishing skills. He is improved a great deal and by the looks out of it could be something special when it is all said and done. The rising sophomore is a force down low and once he refines certain aspects of his game he could very well be one of the best big men in the country for his class.

Maxwell Lorca-Lloyd | Northfield Mount Hermon | 2019

The PSA Cardinals big man was consistent from start to finish on Day Two. He showed off a soft touch and a knack for grabbing offensive and defensive boards. The high academic big is headed to Northfield Mount Hermon (MA) and should make an immediate impact on the squad. He’s definitely someone that will continue to progress and gain more recognition as his high school career takes off.

Ismael Massoud | Berkeley Carroll | 2018

Massoud made a big impression on Day Two with his overall skillset and playmaking ability. The 6’5” point guard has tremendously improved over the past year and it has shown this week at camp. He is still maturing into his body and will definitely surprise some people this high school season.

Bernard Lightsey | Imhotep Charter | 2018

Say what you want about the aesthetic of Lightsey’s jump shot, but know this: it goes in. While he doesn’t have prototypical shooting form, Lightsey is a sniper from deep, knocking down a number of treys both spotting up and off the bounce. He’s also got the strong dribble-drive game that defines a Philly guard, and brings consistent intensity to the defensive end, hounding opposing ball handlers the entire way up the court.

Justin Anderson | Academy of the New Church | 2018 

Simply put, this Philly product is a walking bucket. The top scoring freshman in all of Philly last season, Anderson is constantly in attack mode, using his deceptive handle to blow by defenders and get into the paint. Once there, he’s got an array of crafty pull-ups and a floater that make for a great middle game, and makes good use of a hesitation dribble to get all the way to the cup.

Nate Roberts | Saint Frances | 2018 

Nate is a long, athletic forward who is currently between a three and a four. He’s playing the four at camp and is cleaning up for his team on the glass. On the wing he showed a great slashing ability and has a good handle for someone 6’7. Huge potential to be a deadly wing.

Immanuel Quickley | John Carroll | 2018

Immanuel is a pure scorer, no other way around it. We saw him hunting the three on day two and having great success doing so. He was knocking shots down of the catch and pulling up off the dribble. He also showed he’s willing to shoot from deep, as he let it go from deep range on a few occasions.

Myles Dread | Gonzaga HS | 2018

Vocal, tenacious, defense. These are all things Myles brought to the table Monday. He showed he can be a leader on the court, taking control of his team and leading them every game by providing a voice. He was also active on defense, picking up his man early and defending the full length of the floor. He’s a big time scorer, and shooter, but also was always looking to push the ball in transition.
