With many college programs around the Southeast still looking for fill their 2019 recruiting class, many coaches were on the lookout for unsigned seniors at the Atlanta Jam. Here are three quality seniors from the state of Alabama that put their best foot forward over the weekend.
Lior Berman, 2019 SF, BJBC: Playing his high school basketball at 7A powerhouse Mountain Brook, Berman is one of the most decorated players Alabama has to offer. He was his usual self at the #ATLJAM, as the versatile, 6-foot-4 forward did just a little bit of everything on the floor. He delivered two 30-point outings and proved he is more than capable of scoring the ball when needed. Berman can keep defenses honest with his shot making ability, but most of his damage comes from scoring at the rim off the bounce or off rebounds. He is a relentless rebounder with a constant motor. One program is going to get a tremendous two-way player soon.
Chris Brown, 2019 PF, JBA Jayhawks: Brown has spent much of his high school career surfing under the radar, but this weekend he made a big statement with his play. The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds in four games of action. With his strong frame and size, Brown is a mismatch problem for many post players because of his combination of quickness and strength. He is strong enough to overpower smaller defenders while also being too quick for bigger opponents. He was effective finishing around the goal the entire weekend. Despite being a senior, Brown is still only 17 and should be an intriguing option for some NAIA and Division II schools.
Jaxon Hunter, 2019 SG, BJBC: Hunter isn't the best player on the BJBC team but he may have been the most important over the weekend. The 6-foot-2 guard was as consistent as they come, as he did many of the little things to help BJBC go undefeated on the weekend. A stout guard with a strong body, he was able to defend multiple positions and rebound amongst some size. Hunter did a lot of the dirty work that goes unnoticed in a game, but he's also the guy that translates to wins on the schedule.
