Elite Fall Preview: Team 1 Evals
The inaugural Elite Fall Preview was a stage for the class of 2019 and 2020 to compete against their peers in an invite-only setting. The camp was intense throughout the day and a chance for our staff and hoop heads in the South to get a peek at who has next. We compiled our notes from the coaching staff and our evaluators. Today we look at Team 1 from the Elite Fall Preview.
Terry Armstrong, SF, 2019, Wheeler: A man amongst boys, Armstrong was one of the top overall performers and prospects from the event. He was noted as one of our Super Six from the Elite Fall Preview. Read about that HERE.
Jordan “Snow” Brown, G, 2019, Westover (pictured): Deep, deep range. That’s the first thing you notice when watching Jordan “Snow” Brown out of Albany, Georgia. Brown might have been the best shooter in attendance on Sunday. He was a threat right when he crossed over half court and punished defenders who wouldn’t guard him from 25 feet out. Once he gains more confidence attacking the basket and finishing amongst the trees, Brown will be tough to hold down. - Kyle Sandy
Jaire Eastmond, PG, 2019, Wheeler: True lead guard with a great hesitation drill. As he gets bigger and stronger, his jumper could become more consistent from deep. Playing at Wheeler this season should only help his leadership qualities and developing his vocal approach to his position. Overall, good day of work from the sophomore guard. - Justin Young
Mason Ellison, SF, 2019, Lee-Huntsville (AL): Ellis started out the first game a little rough, but after he found his rhythm and footing, he was a nice, complimentary piece for Team 1. The 6-foot-6 wing is a fearless attacker and can finish at the rim with contact. He is explosive getting to the rim and has a knack for drawing contact, too. While Ellison didn't have to do it much, he also showed a nice mid-range pull-up. Overall, Ellison had two successful weekends at the Alabama Fall Preview and the Elite Underclassmen Preview. - Garrett Tucker
Devin Ramsey, F, 2019, Northwood Academy (SC): Ramsey did a fantastic job of using his wide body to his advantage on Sunday. The 6-foot-6 big man understands how to carve out space and work below the rim. He has a god set of hands in tow and catches everything around the basket. Despite his size, Ramsey moves around well enough and is effective in the game. He's a name to watch for in South Carolina in the next few years. - Garrett Tucker
Kamar Robertson, PG, 2019, Cambridge: Kamar Robertson made a name for himself over the weekend with his hustle and athleticism. The 5-foot-11 guard flew around the court and impacted the game on both ends of the floor. His strongest game came when he posted 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block. Robertson’s aggressiveness should bode well his sophomore season in Fulton County after leading the Cambridge Bears in scoring as a freshman. - Kyle Sandy
Isaiah Scott, SG, 2019, First Presbyterian Christian Academy: A talented scorer, Scott pumped in the points at the camp. Overall development at the wing position will help his production as a defender, passer and ball-handling. That said, he’s a strong rim attacker and has a great frame to work with over the next three years. - Justin Young
Andrew Thomas, SF, 2019, Whitefield Academy: A good shot-blocker for a 6-foot-4 wing and a strong defender for a freshman. As he moves into the high school ranks and under the tutelage of one of the best teachers of the game in Atlanta, Thomas should add value in his ball-handling and scoring. He’s not a player that needs to score to add value to the floor. - Justin Young
Kalen Williams, PG, 2019, Lakeside: Williams is a very good ball handler who consistently finds space to maneuver where there seemingly is none. With his quickness off the dribble, he can find his way into the paint, where he scores the ball well and can find teammates. You cannot doubt him because of his small size because his big production speaks for itself. At this stage, the Augusta native is one of Georgia's better point guards in the class of 2019. - Carter Wilson
