Alabama Preview Camp: Team 7 Breakdown
Our Alabama Preview camp is in the books as we hosted 80 players at the Supreme Courts in Guntersville, Alabama. After rounding up the evaluations from our coaches and staff, here is our team 7 break down.
Landon Jacobs, 2022 G, Madison Academy: No matter which court you watched Jacobs play on, his voice was definitely heard. This kid is a great communicator on the floor. He talks to his teammates non stop on the defensive end. He also has the potential to be a high level rebounder. I watched him collect 10 rebounds in his first game.
Bryant James, 2024 G, Haleyville: James was one of the best passers at the camp. Only an upcoming freshman, his court vision is superb. He gets the ball up the floor quick and makes the correct pass before the play even develops. James led his teammates to the open spots, setting them up for easy lay ups. He also has a smooth 3-point stroke.
Nathan Johns, 2021 F, Jemison: Johns has the potential to be an impact player at the next level. This kid is really skilled around the basket. He has good footwork and a soft touch. Defenders had a difficult time stopping him once he got the ball inside of the paint. Johns was effective in transition, running the floor and brining the ball up. He showcased his ability to extend the floor and consistently knock down jumpers.
Avaughn Johnson, 2022 F, Murrah: Johnson proved to be one of the most athletic kids at the camp. He is a high energy, down hill player. He finished several tough lay ups and made multiple high flying dunks. Johnson often took the challenge of guarding the opposing teams' best player while leading his team in rebounding as well. This kid definitely has that dog in him that you can't teach. He was able to get his hands on the ball and get to the basket simply because he wanted it more than his opponents.
Matthew Rainer, 2022 F, Vestavia Hills: Rainer had a field day driving baseline. He utilized his quick rip through and first step to get right where he wanted - the baseline. Once he got to his spot, he finished lay ups with both hands and hit some two dribble pull ups.
Jackson Weaver, 2024 PG, Vestavia Hills: This young player showed good promise. He made good decisions and didn't force shots. Weaver made some good passes and hit a couple of mid range jumpers.
Braden Ray, 2021 G, Red Bay: Ray did a bit of everything throughout the day. He was not shy of getting physical, finishing shots through contact. He also flexed his physicality grabbing boards on both ends of the floor. He ran the floor well in transition while also showing he can be a threat from deep. Ray showed deep range as well as a solid mid range game.
