AAU Club Name: Boo Williams – Chamblee

AAU Coach Evaluation: Greg has been a joy to have on my team this year. He is an instant spark off the bench and gives it his all night in and night out. He has a constant motor and lives on the glass for us. He is pleasure to have on this team because of how quiet and humble he is. Very coachable player and will run through a brick will if I asked him to. Nick Chamblee, Head Coach Boo Williams – Chamblee. Nick Chamblee starred at Hampton High School before playing collegiately at St Augustine’s where he earned All Freshman honors in the CIAA.

Coach Frank says: Greg is an exciting prospect and his growth both physically and fundamentally over the past year has been tremendous. He has also become a more assertive and skilled player and has the look of an impact high school player as early as next year. Greg is very active in the paint defensively and can also step out and defend opposing wings. He has very good bounce, is an excellent repeat jumper. He has a strong frame that allows him to establish his presence inside and fight through contact and score. He boxes out regularly, outworks opponents and pounds the glass relentlessly. Greg is an excellent defensive rebounder and good shot blocker. He does a good job sealing his defender and receiving the basketball in the post and finishes at a high rate. Greg can also face up and hit the jumper to about 16-18 feet. Still developing, we are excited about his upside because of his solid work ethic not only developing his game but developing his body as well and the rewards of his efforts are beginning to show in a big way. Greg is very athletic and approaches the game with a business like attitude. Watch his stock continue to soar as his high school career progresses.
