2022 Alabama Preview Camp Team 6 Evaluations
GUNTERSVILLE, Al—We’re finishing up another great year of Alabama preview camp coverage with the evaluations for team six.
Davidson is a big, physical post presence. He can dominate on the glass and own the paint. Davidson scores well at the rim with both hands. On defense, he can be a terrific rim protector.
Johnson is an athletic guard with touch from 3-point range. He’s quick and gets to his spots easily. Johnson also showed upside as a floor general. He routinely sought to get others involved and led the show well. Defensively, he’s an on-ball pest who can cause disruption.
It was pretty obvious that Echols has been taught the game well. He has a good understanding of what he’s doing on the floor. It especially showed offensively. He’s a nice playmaking wing who can shoot it and attack closeouts well. Echols impressed coaches and evaluators with his feel for the game.
One of the better Alabama prospects in his class, McCants impressed at camp on Sunday. He’s a long pg, that processes the game well out of ball screens. When he’s aggressive, he can change the complexion of a game. McCants showed that he can hit shots from all over. As he continues to progress in his overall game, he’ll be a name to remember. He has so many tools that separate him from a lot of Alabama players in his class.
Porch became one of the more electrifying, fun players to watch as camp progressed because of his gunner mentality from 3-point range. He wasn’t shy about pulling deep shots and made a high percentage of them. Porch could have been the best overall shooter there. He plays hard and makes things happen on both ends of the floor as a result. Porch was also a leader and communicator with all the intangibles a coach could ask for.
The most intriguing long-term prospect in the gym, Walker has all of the physical tools already. He has a projectable frame as a long 6-foot-6 wing. He has great shooting touch and can be a reliable catch-and-shoot guy from mid-range out to the perimeter. Walker was active on both ends of the floor in terms of rebounding and was a dominant force on the glass. He used his length to be a disruptive defender. The 2025 wing has loads of potential.
