Senior Showcase: Team 4
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 4.
Josiah Agnew, Shiloh High School, 6-0, PG
A tough, hard-nosed glue guy, Agnew was not afraid to get out there and guard. He defended hard and ran on a high motor all day. Offensively, he makes shots that present themselves and rebounded hard in the paint.
Naj Ashley-Emory, McIntosh High School, 6-2, PG/SG
One of the better guards in the camp, Ashley-Emory proved himself as a good finisher who plays well downhill. He’s an explosive guard who plays with good pace. Ashley-Emory is a shot maker and a finisher. Moreover, he was also a willing defender.
Xavier Ayres, Grayson, 6-3, G
A solid rebounder from the guard position, Ayers found his spots to make an impact. He runs the floor with speed and knew how to play in transition and in the halfcourt.
Devon Barnes, Cedar Grove High School, 6-3, CG
A solid ball-handler, Barnes could create for himself and for others. He’s a good shooter that knocked down perimeter shots in each of the games he played in. Barnes is a tough kid and an aggressive defender.
Nolan Causwell, Morgan County High School, 6-9, C
FROM OUR TOP PERFORMER STORY: There wasn’t much debate about this thought - the 6-foot-9 post player may have the best upside of all of the prospects in the camp. There is still a lot to improve upon (strength, mobility and agility) but there are also tons of tools to sharpen moving forward. That’s a good thing. Causwell has a nice touch on his shot. He played big around the basket on defense. He changed so many shots on Sunday and rebounded well above his shoulders. Overall, he left college coaches with plenty to think about.
Torrie Crawford, Eastside High School, 5-9, PG
A strong body and good ball-handling skills allowed Crawford to get to spots on the floor to create offense for himself and others. Defensive, he was ready to go to battle when his number was called.
Brandon Green, Buford, 6-5, SF
Hands down one of the best athletes in the entire field. He is a freak athlete with great explosion off the floor. Green runs the floor very well and was at his very best in the transition game. Green is a long defender who can cover a lot of ground because of his length.
Donaven Hairston, Milton, 6-0, CG
One of the best point guards in the entire camp. He has a great feel and good vision as a point guard. Hairston is a good shot maker who makes good decisions in the pick and roll. He’s a solid shooter and confident on both ends of the floor. One of the better academic guards in the camp, he opened a lot of eyes and was one of the trending players in the camp on Sunday.
Demarcus Johnson, Tri-Cities, 6-2, SG
One of the best shooters in the camp, Johnson was extremely confident from the wing. He has terrific range and knew when to go for the big shot. That’s his game - perimeter sniper. On the flip side, he’s an in-your-face defender who will challenge opposing shooters and scorers. Johnson will have a great career in college as a shot-maker.
Felix Uadiale, Eagles Landing Christian Academy, 6-5.5, PF
The big man from the Class A Private runner-up plays bigger than his size down low. He’s a good rebounder that can finish with strength. Uadiale runs the floor with great energy and purpose. A junkyard dog mentality, the big man will have no problems making the transition into the college game. Several schools were interested in his potential role at the next level.
