2022 Elite Preview Top Overall Performers
SUWANEE, GA—One of the best days on the HoopSeen calendar has come and gone yet again. The invite-only Elite Preview is one of the best opportunities to evaluate underclassmen and get eyes on future stars.
The 2022 installment of the storied camp was as great as ever. Here are some of the top overall performers from the day.
When looking back on the 2022 Elite Preview, Eddie Cooke has to be in the discussion as the most impactful player overall. He’s a big guard with a good frame. Cooke shot the ball well, but he was at his best when using his physicality around the basket. He’s a guard who can create off the dribble and pass the ball well. Defensively, he can guard multiple positions. Look out for Cooke to have a big season at Berkmar.
Cooper is an athletic wing who has already established himself as one of the best sophomores in Georgia. On Sunday, he flexed his versatility on both ends of the floor. Cooper is a guy who can play through contact on drives and create his own shot off the dribble. He shined from the 3-point line while also showing that Can guard multiple spots on defense and has underrated vision.
Wells was the biggest surprise of the camp. I wasn’t familiar with his game coming into the day, but I’ll certainly remember him afterward. Wells is a shifty guard who’s skilled with the ball in his hands. He keeps that thing on a string and can create for himself and others. Wells flexed his passing ability all day long and threaded the ball through tight windows to open teammates. When Wells got to his floater, it was lights out.
We’ve seen Teasley produce consistently on the HoopSeen platform, and he continues that success on Sunday. He’s a point guard who can score it from multiple levels. We’ve seen his ability to light it up from 3-point range, and he showed that off again at the Elite Preview. More importantly, he reminded everyone that he can impact the game outside of scoring. Teasley is a great positional rebounder, and he’s an active defender. Per usual, he passed the ball well and got everyone involved.
Carter is a big wing with a ton of upside. At camp he impressed as a Slasher with a knack for making highlight-reel plays at the rim. He’s a big-time athlete who moves well. Whether he was flying high for a dunk or blocking someone on the other end, Carter had the gym buzzing. He has a chance to be even more scary than he already is when the skill parts of his game round into form. Right now, he’s a name that’s near the top of the minds of Georgians, but he could be a highly-touted national guy in time.
