CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Our HoopSeen Fall Preview took to the road and 80 players filled up the gorgeous Levine Center at Queens University on Sunday for a full day of action on the hardwood. We came away impressed with the field and a number of players stood out with their play. Here is the first round of top performers from the event.
He set the tone for his camp experience early by shining on the defensive end of the floor. He showed that he could guard multiple positions and be effective in a variety of ways. Need a stop? He got it. Need a rebound? He pulled one down. Challenge a shot? No problem. Berry has a confident handle and a confident pull-up jumper. His form is ideal and he has great size for his position. Always moving in the haflcourt, Berry looks like a guy who will only continue to get better and play his way into a multitude of college options. - Justin Young
One of the most skilled players in the camp, van der Heijden caught everyone’s attention because of overall value on both ends of the floor. He was one of the best passers in the camp and certainly best passing big man. His vision and feel are top notch. van der Heijden ran the floor well and when there was an opportunity to make an athletic play, he was eager to do so. Always active on defense and keen as a rebounder, van der Heijden was valuable on both sides of the ball. He was very impressive on Sunday in Charlotte and looked like a guy who can play at a high level. - Justin Young
Haynie had no problem whatsoever in getting to the free-throw line because of his aggressive approach to the camp. He was explosive with the dribble and attacked with either hand. He was a baseline warrior and drove hard into his defenders and put them on their heels with his quickness and explosion. Haynie is a high-level athlete with good bounce. As a shooter, he drilled a couple of step-back threes and shot well as a pull-up jump shooter. - Justin Young
The ball was constantly in his hands and he knew what to do with it at all times. Jamison is quite shifty en route to the rim and fast from end to end. He had little problem getting into the paint from the wing as a rim attacker and showed off his good ball-handling from start to finish. Jamison was one of the best overall rim attackers in the entire camp. HIs ball skills were terrific. His recruitment has a nice mixture of high-major and quality mid-major schools involved. - Justin Young
Swag. Charlotte commit Jackson Threadgill has a lot of it. The 6-foot-6 guard showed today at The North Carolina Preview why the likes of Georgia, Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro and Wofford were all recruiting the PSB Elite product. Threadgill is tough to stay in front of. He is always moving without the ball and has the length at the guard spot to cause problems in the A-10 conference. One of the best shooters we saw over the June evaluation period, he is confident and knows what he can do on the floor. Ron Sanchez and staff land one of the premier scorers in the Charlotte area and will keep him home for his college career. - Justin Byerly
You could make an argument that the sophomore was the best shooter in the entire camp. When he got the ball, the bench mod would get on their feet when the ball went in the air and out of Zanoni’s hands. He let the game come to him and when the moment presented itself, Zanoni let it fly with confidence and converted with ease. He has good positional size and understands how to play the game. Getting open without the ball was not an issue and he stayed under control throughout on both sides of the ball. Zanoni was a consensus top performer pick from our coaches and staff. - Justin Young
