2020 Alabama Preview Camp: Top Performers, part II

The 2020 Alabama Fall Preview is officially in the books after a strong day of competition and game-play on Sunday at the Supreme Courts in Guntersville. After camp we polled out coaches and staff on their top performers from the event. Nearly a dozen people's input was considered for our top performers. 

Without further adieu, here is our final group of top performers from this year's Alabama Fall Preview...

Greedy Williams out of Pinson Valley High School was one of my favorite players at the Fall Preview. It did not take me long to notice him in the first game I watched. He came off as what his name is – Greedy. But in a good way. He was constantly moving on both ends of the floor. Williams has a solid handle and proved to be a good decision maker with the ball in his hands. His ability to distribute was on full display as he made multiple good passes setting his teammates up for easy buckets. As far as his scoring ability, Williams was scoring from multiple spots on the floor. I watched him hit threes, mid ranges, and get into the lane with ease. Williams is definitely a prospect to keep tabs on as his senior season begins. - Brianna Patton

Russell gave the crowd every they asked for and more as his quick bursts of athleticism left every one talking. While leading the camp in highlights wasn't a statistic that we kept, Russell would lead the group had we tallied the marks.  Given his size, strength, and a revved up motor, defenders didn't step in his way once he had a full head of steam. It takes a wall of people to stop his progress as Russell packs a punch whenever he dips his shoulders to the rim. Given that ability to score in transition, Russell has created a nice reputation as one of the best finishers in the state of Alabama. With two years remaining in high school it will be a sight to see as he continues to add to the other aspects of his game. - Tai Young

Donovan Shangase- When it came to scoring the ball there may not of been a deeper bag to pull from than Clay-Chalkville guard Donovan Shangase. Keeping his defenders off balance came easy as he used a nice change of speed and direction to create separation from whoever was in front of him. From one dribble pull-ups, to finishing off the glass, the senior guard played with the confidence of a scorer that has done it before. His first game of the day was the most impressive as our staff raved about his level of efficiency. Points seemingly came easy and often for the available guard.- Tai Young

Jalon Moore came into the day as one of the more talked about prospects of the camp. There has been a lot of buzz around Moore recently due to his play with the Nike Elite Stars this summer picking up offers from the likes of Murray State, Georgia Tech, and Mississippi State. His physical stature was the first thing that stood out to me. At 6-foot-6, Moore has great size with a really strong build. Throughout the day, he showed glimpses of his scoring ability. There were times where he would go on individual runs, creating off the dribble and scoring at ease. His best play of the day was a monstrous dunk down the middle of the lane right over the defender. He slammed it with authority and made his presence known. With his frame and scoring ability, Moore has the tools to be an impact player on both ends. - Brianna Patton

Early in camp I made a note to see if Cunningham's hot shooting would continue through the rest of the day. It was proven through the course of three games that his shooting was not just the result of one hot moment but rather that of a player that's obviously taken those shots before. Despite being a few steps outside of the three point line, Cunningham would step into his shot with the utmost of confidence. His ability to have a constant impact on the game was what separated him from many of his peers who's inconsistent play left a lot to be desired. The Gardendale senior should put a lot of pressure on coaches this season to see how far they're willing to extend their defense. - Tai Young
