Hoop Exchange Live Player Showcase – Session I: Class of 2024 Notables

K.J. Jackson, Jacksonville Episcopal: The 5’11 point guard had an impressive performance Saturday morning.  He keeps his head up, controls his dribble, and isn’t bothered by pressure or double-teams.  He shoots the ball well from the perimeter and is an above average athlete.  Definite college potential.

Isaac Celiscar, Winter Haven: The 6’5 wing is a high level athlete with long arms and quick leaping ability.  He was very effective inside the arc both as a shooter and a rim attacker.  Celiscar is also a volume rebounder and a player with a lot of defensive versatility and potential.

Kameren Wright, Gainesville: The 6’4 guard had an impressive first viewing.  He was quite productive but also has a lot of potential.  Wright is a long athlete that rebounds and both ends, runs the floor and is a high level finisher.  Offensively he showed he can score through contact while on the defensive end he was active and guarded a variety of positions with success.

Ryan Jones, Gainesville The Rock School: The 6’8 Jones is tough to stop when he focuses on scoring around the basket.  He is quick, strong, and gets up high for his shot.  Jones has proven he can knock down the occasional three but he is so much more effective on post ups or short drives to the basket.  He rebounds the ball at a high rate and is an active defender in the post and on the perimeter.

Eric Taylor, Orlando Edgewater: The 6’0 guard played his freshman year at Winter Park and averaged double figures for the Wildcats.  On Saturday, Taylor attracted attention with his ability to connect consistently on shots well behind the arc.  A good athlete, he has very good ball-handling skills and makes good decisions on the move.

Marc Ekiri, Orlando Christian Prep: The 6’6 athlete is raw but got a lot done on Saturday.  He is long, athletic, and gobbles up rebounds at both ends of the floor.  Ekiri is fast down the floor in transition and scores well around the basket.  His ceiling will rise as his skills continue to develop.

Cam Simpson, Orlando East River: The 6’4 wing impressed with his ability to connect from three point land, especially off the catch.  He has good size and is an active rebounder, especially on the offensive end of the floor.

Ian Smikle, Riviera Beach Suncoast: The 6’9 Smikle proved to be a load to handle inside.  He scored well with basic post moves and displayed a soft touch on putbacks and tap-ins.  Smikle willingly runs rim to rim.  He is a good athlete and will certainly improve in that area.

Darrien Frazier, Jacksonville Wolfson: The 6’0 guard used his speed and quickness to make plays.  He connected on several perimeter shots along with breaking down the defense to score at the basket.  Defensively, he has active hands and good anticipation for balls coming into his area.

Fredy Sylla, Jacksonville Potter’s House Christian Academy: The 6’6 wing is a smooth player that runs the floor, glides to the rim, and scores with either hand at the basket.  Sylla rebounds well at both ends and defense both post and perimeter with great energy.
