2022 Alabama Preview Camp Team 4 Evaluations
GUNTERSVILLE, Al—HoopSeen continues its coverage of the 2022 Alabama preview camp with the team four breakdown.
Hollis was one of the better guards on Sunday. He’s lightning-quick and gets to his spots easily. He puts pressure on defenses with his aggressive attack of the rim. Hollis draws contact on drives and gets to the free-throw line. He plays with plenty of bounce too.
Strickland is a solid shooter with a good feel for the game. He didn’t rush shots and picked smart opportunities to let it fly. With a shooter, it’s always impressive when they know when to make the extra pass, and Strickland did that. He knew to feed the hot hand. Strickland showed initiative on the rebounding front as well.
Rivers had an impressive outing on Sunday. He has a nice-looking jumper and good wing size. Rivers plays multiple perimeter spots and can be used as a utility man out there. He has a strong frame and uses it to finish at the rim. Rivers showed off some bounce on Sunday too. Certainly a prospect to make note of moving forward. If my information is correct, he’s only a sophomore, so there’s plenty to look forward to with him.
A member of the 2026 class, McNally showed plenty of potential. McNally shot it well and packed some offensive punch. McNally runs the floor hard and finishes plays reliably. He frees himself up for clean looks because of how well he moves off the ball.
Binkley was part of a young group of 2026 wings on this team. He has solid perimeter size and has a ton of upside as a shooter. His shot looks good, and he can heat up from the perimeter. Another area in which he impressed was in his rebounding. Binkley doesn’t mind sticking his nose in the paint and battling for boards.
Walker might have been the smartest overall player at camp. He has an impressive basketball I.Q. He was a constant communicator and floor general. From an intangibles standpoint, he was unmatched. Walker showed multi-level scoring prowess with a smooth jumper. After making a good first impression on Sunday, I can’t wait to see more out of him in the future. He has a chance to be a nice prospect from the area.
