5 Best Scorers at the Elite Preview
With a gym loaded with top talent and players that can score it in bunches, there were five who stood out with their overall scoring ability.
Coaches were raving about Bilal's scoring ability throughout the day. He is super crafty that has really focused on his step back to create space. Once he gets into the lane, you never know how he'll finish the shot. His offensive arsenal is impressive, especially with him only being a sophomore. This kid can get hot quick and scores the ball in flurries.
The ease that he scores the ball with is very intriguing. The 6-foot-1 guard out of The Walker School plays at such a fast pace on the offensive end. Once he gets downhill with the ball, defenders might as well forget about it. He is an explosive athlete that has no problems finishing through contact. He also showed his ability to knock down shots from deep.
Harris is showing to be one of the best scorers in Georgia’s 2024 class. The guard/wing prospect is a legitimate multi-level scorer who can hurt you in a variety of ways. Right now, I’d contend that he’s at his most deadly when he’s putting the ball on the floor and getting to his mid-range jumper. He’s a strong finisher at the rim too though, and Harris is a more-than-capable 3-point shooter to boot.
Jeffries definitely impressed a lot of the people in attendance just with his motor. He literally gives all of his effort on both ends and takes no plays off. With the energy that he expends, it is crazy to think about how he continues to play at such a high speed. The sophomore out of Newton can score the ball at multiple levels. He gets to the rim with ease and can knock down shots out on the perimeter. Going up against the likes of Jakai Newton, Stephon Castle, and Qua Brown every day at practice will only make him better.
Ogunyemi was one of the top overall freshman at the event; he made a big impression. The event coaches were rumbling about how promising he is as a prospect. At 6-foot-5, he is a versatile player that can play inside-out. He is an absolute playmaker out on the wing and can be dominant in the paint as well. Defensively, he can guard just about every position. I'm interested to keep an eye on his development as he progresses through high school
