With our eight camp Preview series now in the books, our staff has been deep in the archives and drumming up our picks for "The Best of..." series that we will run this week on HoopSeen. Today we dive deep into the seniors.
One of the best shot makers at our NC Preview Camp, Allen was an eye-catcher because of his offensive versatility. He uses an explosive first-step to get by defenders and score at the rim. He was consistent shooting the ball throughout the camp and he is a strong bodied guard uses his strength and power to beat down smaller guards. Allen has offers from Rider, Mount Olive, Mars Hill and Lees-McRae - Justin Byerly
Arias made quite the splash at our final Georgia Fall Preview camp. As a virtual unknown prospect coming into camp, the Dominican Republic import made quite the first impression. The 6-foot-3 wing showed the ability to score from all three levels throughout the day, but he was hard to handle off the bounce and slashing to the rim. Arias is explosive off the bounce and had no problems finishing through contact at the rim. Don't be surprised to see a host of Division I programs making the trip to Trinity Christian to see the talented guard. - Garrett Tucker
This massive senior was an eye-catching prospect from the minute he stepped through the door at our Alabama Fall Preview camp. His high running motor was just the cherry on top as defenders struggled to move his sheer size away from any rebounds. With some workable skill to build on, the later years of Boozer's career could show off a different prospect. Being way ahead of the curve physically helps his case as one of the state's most imposing big men. - Garrett Tucker
Edwards set the standard that I used to evaluate players from all of our border state camps. His showing at our first Fall Preview camp in Suwanee was that exceptional. As a two-way prospect his intangibles and skill set was not duplicated by very many prospects through seven high school camps. Edwards exerted himself on both ends and left me with no stone unturned during my evaluation. As a two-level scorer and defender, Edwards was impressive as a high floor, high ceiling prospect. Although his recruitment doesn’t reflect it, the Tucker wing promises to be one of the best prospects to come out of Georgia this season. My chips are pushed to the center to bet on him having a breakout season. - Tai Young
We had a chance to see Thompson shine at our South Carolina Preview camp and the 6-foot-3 guard was easy to spot. Thompson is one of the bigger point guards in western North Carolina. He can score over smaller guards and get into the paint and grab rebounds against bigger players. Thompson showed he can consistently knock down shots to the three-point line and does a great job of creating separation. He is a skilled passer that always found the open man in transition or in the half-court. His recruitment is picking up a little with some low-major Division I schools getting involved and some solid Division II programs. - Justin Byerly
