#4: 5’7 ’23 Caleb Senyo (Fletcher, NC)
Starting things off, we look at a player that possesses a quality foundation and useful skillset, Caleb Senyo. He’s a smart, wiry point guard prospect with a fairly well-rounded skillset and the ability to properly run an efficient offense. Senyo offers a terrific balance between scoring and playmaking, which allows him to actively change his approach from one possession to the next. He does an excellent job of outworking opponents in his grade level and has all the necessary tools to become a fantastic player. Next in his development process is working to add strength, as it will prepare him for the physicality of the high school game, especially on defense. Coach Sause on Senyo: “Caleb is a strong right-handed driver and proved to be a decent passer and midrange shooter. He can continue to improve his shot selection. Caleb has a great attitude and does a good job of accepting coaching.” Senyo is already a pretty productive young floor general, so it’ll be interesting to see how he progresses over these next few years.
#14: 5’10 ’22 Evan Vo (Greensboro, NC)
Next, we look at a player that did a great job of operating without the ball and maximizing his role, Evan Vo. He’s a wiry off-guard prospect that understands how to move and position himself properly as a spot-up threat. Vo typically sets up along the perimeter and is capable of knocking down shots from midrange or beyond the arc. He also showed a nice pull-up jumper and was able to take his opponent off the dribble at times. Next in his development process is working on becoming a craftier ball-handler, as it would likely improve his ability as a penetrator. Coach Sause on Vo: “Evan showed some flashes of being a good shooter during camp. He did a good job of squaring his shoulders and showing decent form. He could use work defensively but displayed a positive attitude and accepted coaching well.” Vo was able to make some useful contributions during his time at camp and could continue steadily developing over the coming years.
#23: 5’11 ’22 Kolbe Ashe (Hayesville, NC)
Moving onto a player that simply understands how to run a team and play the right way, Kolbe Ashe. He’s a young, intelligent point guard prospect with phenomenal offensive instincts, both as a scorer and playmaker. Ashe is a three-level scorer with a tight handle and excellent vision, which overwhelmed each assignment throughout the day. He is capable of operating without the ball and applying useful pressure as a knockdown spot-up threat, but he’s just more valuable with the ball in his hands. Ashe was excellent in transition and made the extra pass whenever possible. Next in his development process is working to become quicker, as it would make him a better on-ball defender. Coach Sause on Ashe: “Kolbe showed the ability to do a lot of things on the court. He shot the ball really well and did a lot of things off the bounce. He showcased high-level vision and passing ability. Kolbe has a chance to be a high-level point guard if he grows. He displayed a positive attitude and accepted coaching well.” Ashe was one of the most electric floor generals on display and should be a prospect worth keeping an eye on going forward.
#33: 6’0 ’19 Thomas Miles (Henderson, NC)
Continuing onto a player that showcased a pretty productive and intriguing skillset during his time at camp, Thomas Miles. He’s a strong, athletic point guard prospect with a solid overall feel for the game. Miles is a quality perimeter shooter with quickness and the ability to take his assignment off the dribble decently well. He sees the floor well and showed a willingness to make plays for others. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better/craftier finisher around the basket. Coach Sause on Miles: “Thomas’ best attributes are his size and athleticism at the point guard position. He can get to the rim with ease. He needs to improve his release timing to elevate his game. Thomas maintained a positive attitude and accepted coaching well during camp.” Miles proved to be a solid contributor and useful team player, so it’ll be interesting to see what college programs get involved during the late stages of his recruitment.
#42: 6’2 ’21 Ryan Roberts (Graham, NC)
Next, we look at a player that already appears to have all the makings of a scholarship-level guy, Ryan Roberts. He’s a smart guard prospect with size and the ability to thrive with or without the ball in his hands. Roberts has drastically improved his physique over the last few months and it’s noticeably helped his fluidity when taking opponents off the bounce. His jumper is still as pretty as ever and he’s capable of piling it on from beyond the arc, especially as a spot-up threat. Roberts is also able to find his shot within two to three dribbles and is an efficient pull-up shooter as well. Next in his development process is working on his playmaking abilities, as it will make him a more complete offensive threat. Coach Sause on Roberts: “Ryan is a player with good size and the ability to shoot the ball at a high level. He has a good release point on his jumper. Ryan needs to improve his defense and ability to finish off the bounce in order to take his game to another level.” Roberts is already a very intriguing prospect and should begin hearing from scholarship coaches sooner than later.
#52: 6’3 ’19 Brevin Goodlett (Spencer, NC)
Moving onto a player that really stood out as one of the top all-around performers on display, Brevin Goodlett. He’s a strong, athletic guard/wing prospect with an excellent two-way motor and quality feel for the game. Goodlett was easily the most physical player at camp and showed no fear of defensive pressure when attacking the basket. He has a well-rounded skillset on offense and is capable of dominating his assignment on defense. Goodlett rebounded the ball extremely well, forced turnovers at a high rate, and pushed transition play with relative ease. Next in his development process is working on his consistency as a three-point shooter, as it would make him an even tougher matchup for opposing guards and wings. Coach Sause on Goodlett: “Brevin was one of the top players in attendance at this camp. He’s a high-level athlete that plays well above the rim. His defense is one of his best attributes and ability to turnover opposing ball-handlers. He accepted coaching well throughout the day.” Goodlett is a definite scholarship-level player that is ready to contribute at the next level right now, so college coaches need to get involved, as he could be a fantastic get for a variety of programs.
#64: 6’5 ’21 Brody Kiger (Germanton, NC)
Continuing onto a player that showcased a pretty intriguing array of skills during his time at camp, Brody Kiger. He’s a long, wiry forward prospect that can reliably stretch the floor or operate around the basket. Kiger does an excellent job of not forcing the action and operating within the team concept on offense. He is an effective scorer with nice shooting mechanics, but additional strength would allow him to be a more imposing interior presence. Kiger utilized his length nicely to secure rebounds and second-chance opportunities. Next in his development process is working to become quicker, as it would make him a more useful penetrator and on-ball defender. Coach Sause on Kiger: “Brody showcased a blend of size and soft shooting touch. He has the potential to become a solid stretch power forward if he can continue to improve his strength and footwork. Brody displayed a positive attitude throughout camp.” Kiger showcased some intriguing tools at camp and could be a prospect to keep an eye on going forward.
#75: 6’7 ’22 Jake McTaggart (Hayesville, NC)
Finishing up, we look at a player that currently sits at an exceptional crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Jake McTaggart. He’s a big, strong post prospect that plays with toughness and physicality on both sides of the ball. McTaggart scores the ball well from the elbows-in, but typically likes to work around the basket and finish through contact. He’s an incredibly strong rebounder, especially for his age, and did a terrific job of dominating the glass on both ends of the floor. McTaggart has a great feel for the game and his overall skillset, but also looks likely to continue steadily progressing and possibly growing. Next in his development process is working on his touch as a finisher, as he is great at getting open opportunities and rebounding but can better maximize his scoring presence. Coach Sause on McTaggart: “Jake is a very skilled young big man that really has a chance to become an excellent player. He has a very good body and can move well for his size. With improved touch and use of his off-hand, Jake can develop into a very good player.” McTaggart already possesses an abundance of tools to work with and should be a prospect to closely monitor over the next few years.
