2022 Alabama Preview Camp Top Performers
GUNTERSVILLE, Al—Alabama is always one of the best stops on HoopSeen’s fall preview camp series, and this year was another part of that history. Supreme Courts in Guntersville was filled with some of ‘Bama’s finest.
We’re going to kick off our coverage of the camp with some of the top performers as compiled by our staff and coaches.
Adolphus was tremendous when aggressively attacking the basket. He was automatic when he got to the rim and converted tough finishes. He had no problem getting by his man. Adolphus shot the ball well from 3-point range too. All in all, he was one of the more lethal scorers I saw. Letting him see a shot go in more than likely resulted in a hot streak for Adolphus.
Right off the bat, Justice stood out during warm-ups. He has good perimeter size at 6-foot-6 and showed off plenty of athleticism with impressive dunks. Justice is a solid shooter with touch from mid-range to the 3-point line. The 2024 guard showed some ability as a secondary creator as well. He’ll be a prospect that coaches will want to take a look at.
Johnson’s presence was a shining example of what it takes to be a prospect at the highest level in terms of intangibles. He was a constant communicator and was a leader who spent the afternoon encouraging his teammates. Johnson showed plenty of what we saw out of him during the summer with the Georgia Stars. He scored the ball efficiently from all levels and used his physicality to get to his spots and finish through contact. The Alabama commit will have a big-time season with Grissom before heading off to Tuscaloosa.
Sexton has the frame for sure. He’s a wing who can guard multiple positions with his length and overall athleticism. He showed some shooting ability from beyond the arc as well. Sexton rebounded the ball well using his length. He’s a versatile guy who can be used in a utility role. He can do a little bit of everything.
I’ve had to check on McKinnon’s graduating year multiple times. He’s a 2026 guy? Wow. That makes what he did at camp even more impressive. McKinnon was a microwave scorer that put on a show when he got on a hot streak. He took games over with his mid-range pull-up game. McKinnon has different athleticism too. He floats when takes off. He has a slender frame now, but he’s tough around the basket and fights for rebounds. There’s a lot to like in McKinnon, and he made a great first impression on a lot of people.
