Alabama Fall Preview: Team 7 Evaluations

We had a fantastic day of action at the Alabama Fall Preview on Saturday. During drills, game-play, and other sessions, our coaches and staff were closely evaluating each player.

Here is what our coaches and staff had to say about Team 7:

Riley Austin, 2018 PG, Spring Garden: Austin did an excellent job of facilitating and showing his IQ as a point guard on Saturday. The point guard consistently got in the paint, where he created opportunities for his teammates. However, Austin’s best attribute is his long-range shooting ability. The junior nailed several 3’s throughout the course of the day.

Bryson Cooper, 2017 SF, Laurel Hill (FL): Cooper brought length and athleticism to the table and utilized both of those over the course of Saturday. The 6-foot-5 wing gave effort on both ends of the floor and was efficient. He was most effective on offense at attacking the rim.

Tyler Stevenson, 2018 SF, New Hope (MS): Stevenson was one of the top players we had in camp. See what our staff had to say about him here.

Mason Ellison, 2019 SF, Lee-Huntsville: Ellison had a fanastic day and was one of our best players at the Alabama Fall Preview. Checkout his evaluation here.

Xavier Williams, 2018 PF, Parker: Williams quietly put together a nice day at camp. The 6-foot-8 face-up 4 man was one of our most intriguing guys of the day with his skill-set and versatility. Williams has soft hands and moves well, making him a dangerous threat from behind the arc. He stretched the defense and was a challenge to guard for other big men in camp. With a flurry of college interest coming in, he’s a potential breakout guy heading into the high school season.

Michael Gibson, 2018 SG, West Point (MS): Gibson showed he was not afraid of being physical on either end of the floor. He battled in the post with bigger players with his strength and intensity. Gibson showed a nice shot as well; in our next viewing, we would like to see him be more active on both ends of the floor.

Isaac Taylor, 2017 CG, Hartselle: Taylor separated himself as one of the top shooters in camp from the beginning. The 6-foot-1 guard gets his shot off quickly and can shoot it with long range. While his shooting is impressive, he also did a good job of setting up the offense. Taylor also showed tremendous vision in both the half-court and full-court transition.

Nicholas Williams, 2018 CG, Cullman: Williams was a fearless attacker on Saturday, as he constantly attacked the rim and kept the defense on its toes. He did a nice job of finishing with contact at the rim, too. Williams competed on both ends of the floor and has a solid showing at the Alabama Fall Preview.

Tyger Quarles, 2018 CG, Thompson: A stout and sturdy guard, Quarles utilized his body and frame to make plays from the opening tip. The 6-foot-2 guard rebounds well for a guard, as he tracks missed shots well and can anticipate where shots are going to fall. He plays with a high motor and is a finisher around the rim. From start to finish, Quarles battled and competed just as much as anyone in camp.

Emanuel Bryson, 2018 PG, Grovetown (GA): Bryson did a nice job of pushing the ball up the floor in transition. The 5-foot-9 guard has a good set of wheels, allowing him to play at a fast pace. He excels in an up and down environment with his high motor and intensity. Bryson showed nice vision and passed the ball well in transition.
