Senior Showcase: Team 2
Our Senior Showcase was a terrific stage for the 40 or so colleges that came out for the day to see good talent. Here's a look at the players on Team 2.
Jarret Adderton, Upson Lee, 6-3, CG
A good athlete with a decent shot and handle, Adderton made his presence felt on the floor in a number of ways. He can play the one, two and three. He can also defend each of those positions with little trouble. He’s a long defender and a solid baseline driver and jump shooter. He’s at his best off the dribble on the offensive end of the floor.
Nijel Bates, Marietta, 6-0, G
It’s not surprising to see a player who suited for Marietta head coach Markus Hood draw reviews like “Plays hard” and “defender” from the staff.
Brandon Deravine, Campbell, 6-8, W/F
There weren’t too many players who had college coaches asking about him as much as Deravine. He has good size for a guy who can play the three and the four spots on the floor. Deravine has a decent shot and played well on defense, blocking a lot of shots. He’s not the most athletic guy but he plays with a great change of pace and shiftiness as a ball-handler to make things challenging for defenders. Deravine has the size and ability to really grow into an important player on a roster at the next level.
Justice Hayes, Cass, 6-3, CG
Every time we looked up, Hayes was making a positive play. He has a really good pull up jump shot. He also shined as a passer and set up man. Hayes took charges and got after it on the defensive end of the floor. Really like his size for the next level and willingness to do whatever it takes to be on the floor.
Matthew Jenkins, Sprayberry, 5-10, PG
A quick guard, Jenkins was hard to stop when he straight line drove to the rim. Jenkins has a nice burst and opens some options for himself as a ball-handler. He also proved himself as a guy who can shoot the three with confidence.
Brent Kelly, Gainesville High, 6-1, CG
In typical Gainesville guard fashion, Kelly played as hard as you’d expect a Red Elephant to play. Kelly showed off a knack for catching and shooting the three ball. He was good from behind the arc. He was also impressive as an on the ball defender.
Kamar Robertson, Cambridge, 6-3, PG
FROM OUR TOP PERFORMER STORY: The best point guard in the camp played with his foot on the gas pedal and kept it mashed on throughout the day. He’s a good, strong point guard. He can shoot the three and mid-range shots with ease. Robertson is good in the pick and roll and pushes the ball well in transition. He’s at his best in the open floor. Robertson can help a Division I program and would be a nice addition as we head into April.
Kevin Powell, Woodward Academy, 6-8, PF
This was one of the best one-day showings we’ve seen from Powell over the years. He showed off a terrific defensive presence as a shot-blocker and rebounder. His timing was terrific and swatted away several shots. Offensively, he scored with a nice over the shoulder right hook. As a rebounder, Powell played with good purpose. He played hard and showed off nice footwork in the post. Not a bad finisher.
Miles Wallace, Holy Spirit Prep, 5-11, PG
Wallace did a really nice job of letting his defense turn into offense. He’s a quick guard that was able to get to the rim and finish. He shot really well in the camp setting, too. You could make an argument that he was one of the ten best shooters in the camp on Sunday.
