JY's Meat & Three: Great advice on how to create valuable video for college coaches

It is lunchtime somewhere. So, welcome back to the lunch hour read of the Meat & Three. Every weekday I dive into a big picture topic and three things to get you through a quarantine spring. Today’s meat is a wonderful Twitter thread of value (they exist!), the NBA Early Entry list, a fun SUVtv rewatch, and, of course, the Ty Freeman photo of the day. 

THE MEAT: HOW TO BUILD A GREAT HIGHLIGHT VIDEO 

The deeper we get into the Q-Tine, the more I find myself not looking at Twitter. The blue check army never runs out of ammo and hot takes abound around the clock. Sometimes you just need a break. 

But there are other times when you stumble across something of value that restores your appreciation for the platform. I came across this Twitter thread from coach Priscilla Edwards, the associate head coach at Providence. She broke down the value of a highlight tape and how and what to create for college coaches. The breakdown is terrific. If you are a high school or travel coach, please share with your players and parents. 

THE NOTE

The NBA Draft early entry list is complete. Here is the list of players who are testing the waters. That’s an awfully crowded pool in a time of distancing. 

The deadline to withdraw and retain college eligibility is June 3 at 5 pm EST. 

THE STREAM 

Let’s go back to 2016 when Zion Williamson and Ashton Hagans locked horns at the FBI Classic in South Carolina at Dorman High School. The two blue-chippers were mainstays in prep hoops conversations at the time but it was the athletic play of UNC Greensboro star Isaiah Miller that also caused a stir at the holiday tournament. This is a fun re-watch from our friends at SUVtv. 

THE TY FREEMAN PHOTO OF THE DAY 

The lens of Ty Freeman catches it all. This week we look take a look at the perspective that Ty brought from the 2019 Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
