Alabama Fall Preview: Top Performers, Part I

After the Alabama Fall Preview, we polled our coaches and support staff on the top 10 players they saw in camp. With over 30 players nominated, we were able to narrow it down to 13 top performers.

With that being said, these players were brought up the most when talking to our coaching staff. This is Part I of our top performers from the Alabama Fall Preview.

Anthony Mason, 2017 C, Austin: No matter who he was going up against, one thing about Mason was for sure: he was out to be the biggest physical force. Nobody seemed to be able to contain the Austin HS senior big man, whether he was finishing off of offensive rebounds, running the floor, or his guards creating for him. He was a high level finisher above the rim. Throw in complete control of the paint and rebounding the ball at a high level and you have one of the most impressive days from any post player at the Alabama Fall Preview. - Carter Wilson

Myles Parker, 2017 SF/PF, Madison Academy: Parker showed what he has become known for at the Preview: being a very athletic and versatile wing that can fill it up in a hurry. At 6-foot-7, Parker is a matchup nightmare, being able to put the ball on the floor and take opposing forwards off the dribble. He is also a threat from the perimeter, with capabilities of knocking down shots from three. With the diversity in his skill set and the ability to play and guard multiple positions, it’s no wonder why he is getting a lot of Division I attention. - Carter Wilson

Tyler Stevenson, 2018 SF, New Hope (MS): If you take one look at Stevenson, there is automatically intrigue. At 6-foot-7 with a ton of length, Stevenson can run the floor end-to-end just as fast as anyone in camp. He plays the game with a high level of energy and creates a lot for himself off of his effort. His skill set on the wing is still developing, but he is able to create off the dribble for himself and is a great finisher in the midrange and around the rim. He has all the potential of a very good player in the making. - Carter Wilson

Mason Ellison, 2019 SF, Lee-Huntsville: Ellison was one of the most impressive underclassmen at The Alabama Fall Preview. The sophomore Huntsville native showed that he has the potential to be an offensive force, taking over games and scoring a lot of points in bunches. He is at his best when he is attacking the basket or shooting in the midrange, however, he is a capable scorer from all three levels. He also has very good size and athleticism, making him a very intriguing prospect and one to watch out for in Alabama over the course of the next few years. - Carter Wilson

Josh Strozier, 2018 SF/PF, Holt: Just as he did at the Elite Preview in March, Strozier brought the energy to the Alabama Fall Preview early on. He constantly brings a high motor to any floor that he plays on, and if you combine that with good athleticism, a solid skill set, and an alpha dog mentality, you have a highly recruitable player. Strozier is one of the most consistent, steady players you’ll find in Alabama’s 2018 class, and should be one that low majors pay close attention to. - Carter Wilson

Kailex Stephens, 2018 SF, Paul Bryant: It didn’t take long for Stephens to make his appearance known with his size and athleticism. Standing at 6-foot-5, the junior is extremely athletic and can jump out of the gym – and he definitely showed that on Saturday with several plays above the rim. He is extremely competitive on both ends of the floor, as he showed potential as a lockdown defender and the ability to slice through the defense. Stephens has hit a growth spurt and is still growing into his body, but he’s one that could really see some attention throughout the high school season. - Garrett Tucker
