King of My City – Rpt IV

Ben McGraw, CP 25 North 17U: The 6’3 junior from Jacksonville Bolles is already committed to MIT.  They will no doubt welcome McGraw’s near-automatic jumper from beyond the arc. He uses that to set up drives and floaters at the basket.  His shot has a quick release and textbook form.

Tynan Becker, SOH Elite 16U:  A 6’5 sophomore from Punta Gorda Charlotte, Decker is a good athlete with a nice stroke from the perimeter.  He rebounds well and is quick to get up the floor on the break.  He appears to have completely recovered from a foot injury late this past season.

Henry Hurst, Team Speights 16U: A 6’3 sophomore from East Lake in Tarpon Springs, Hurst may look like a linebacker but knows how to play some roundball.  He has effective three point range to go along with very competent ball-skills.  Hurst rebounds well against bigger foes and uses his body well on the defensive end against both smaller, quicker players as well as taller opponents.

Grant Chamberlain, Loyalty United 16U: A 6’6 sophomore from Lake Nona in Orlando, Chamberlain was another player that shot the ball very well from the perimeter.  He also got some post up opportunities and scored with solid footwork and post moves.  Chamberlain rebounded his area and didn’t shy away from playing physically inside on the defensive end of the floor.

Marc Wendrow, SOH Elite 16U: A 6’1 sophomore from Miami Country Day, Wendrow may not be as speedy and/or quick as some other point guards but he gets the job done.  He is very adept at running the offense, getting others involved and making the most of his scoring opportunities whether they come in transition, on the drive, or hitting open perimeter shots.  Wendrow puts in a solid effort of the defensive end.

Christian Reid, E1T1 15U: A 6’4 freshman at Mater Academy in Hialeah, Reid is a high level athlete with a strong body.  This allows him to be very effective around the rim when it comes to finishing in traffic and pursuing missed shots at both ends.  He is more of an opportunistic scorer right now but his perimeter skills will no doubt improve with time and repetition.

Isaiah Brown, 1 Family 16U/15U: A 6’3 freshman at Orlando Christian Prep, Brown pulled double-duty this weekend and continues to improve at a very fast rate.  He’s long, has good instincts for the ball and knows how to use those traits on the defensive end of the floor.  Brown has a solid jumper, off either the catch or the dribble, and simply knows how to make positive plays.
