Everything about this game was just too good to not write about the game opposed to pieces. There were around 100 college coaches, lining up 2-deep along the baseline.

Everything about this game was just too good to not write about the game opposed to pieces. There were around 100 college coaches, lining up 2-deep along the baseline. The fans were about 5 deep both upstairs and downstairs. Neither the college coaches or fans were disappointed.

Head Coaches from South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Clemson, George Mason, Winthrop, High Point, Radford, Citadel, Appalachian State, Furman, and others were treated to a high flying, high scoring game.

Game Standouts

6’5” 2018 Coby White (UNC Commit)

White is an elite scorer who had coaches in the stands on Thursday night talking about him being a pro. The newly minted 5-star prospect finished with a game high 30 points as he scored on all 3 levels. He is the elite scorer in the country, just going about his business at all 3 levels, finishing strong and with touch

6’6” 2018 John Newman (Clemson Commit)
Newman is a jack of all trades type player who fits into many different roles in many different systems. Newman is a very good team defender and has a way to find himself disrupting passing lanes and scoring in the midrange. Clemson gets a multi year starter.

6’8” 2018 Hunter Tyson
Tyson is finally being recognized by college coaches and national scouts alike as a Top rated wing in the country. He has the full range of tools with great length, toughness, good athleticism, ball skills in the half court and deep consistent range. It feels like the wing’s recruitment is just beginning and with more performances like his 17 point, 9 rebound, 3 made 3 performance on Thursday, more schools will be forced to jump in.

6’6” 2018 Aaron Nesmith
Nesmith is quickly turning into one of the most highly recruited wings in the southeast region. Nesmith is a high scoring wing who is able to get his at all 3 levels with consistency. He plays with efficiency and within himself. When you add in his 7’2” wing span and 38” vertical leap, you see a world of upside on the young man who is only getting better. He sits at 33 offers with the likes of South Carolina, Florida and Harvard jumping in the mix over the last week. That list will continue to grow.

6’7” 2018 Jalen Slawson
Slawson has basketball in his blood, his father is a Citadel all time great and cousin is a former Top 100 prospect. It is easy to see that Slawson comes by his immense natural tools honestly. Slawson shoots the ball with deep range, he finishes above the rim and he rebounds at a high level. The combo forward picked up an offer from Appalachian State with his performance on Thursday, we would not be surprised to see more come this week.

6’9” 2018 Jake Lanford
In a class (and era) that really lacks talented big men, Lanford is a shining light. He has a good frame with broad shoulders and long arms. He is very vocal on the defensive end and a good area rebounder showing strong hands in traffic. Offensively, Lanford showed soft touch over both shoulders and the ability to really pass the ball out of the high post or on the block. Mid to Mid+ schools should be taking a hard look at Lanford.

6’7” 2018 Shaq Davis
Davis’ athleticism and explosion led him to be one of the most talked about players in Thursday night’s game. He has breath taking leaping ability and timing. Every game he plays you can count on Davis to have one game changing dunk and one massive blocked shot. He tries to dunk everything in transition and block everything from the weak side, it’s impressive!
