Hello World I am Patrick Young
With four thunderous dunks, and intimidating defense, Patrick Young made his presence known at the camp. From the first drill to the last basket, Young was by far the best big man on Day One.
The rising junior had everyone in the gym standing at attention while he was on the floor waiting for him to do something special and he didn’t disappoint.
The event was filled with plenty of top players from the 2009 and 2010 class.
Orlando Olympia Guard Dexter Fields looked like he was in top shape at the tournament scoring and getting to the basket at will.
Pensacola Forward Terrance Beasley showed no ill effects from his sprained wrist that he suffered at the Wallace Prather event as he was dominate on offense scoring inside and out.
Jacksonville Wolfson’s duo of Chris Rosier and Aaron Bowen both had an up and down day. They both displayed offensive skills around the basket but missed several easy baskets.
It’s A Block Party
Baskets didn’t come easy in the paint with some of the premier shot blockers in the state at the event.
Orlando Timber Creek’s Darius Morales made life miserable for his opponents. Morales is 6’9 but has the wing span of seven footer. With an improved offensive game, Morales can be a mid level prospect.
Fort Myers Joshkema Nicholas was a bit of a surprise at the camp. The 6’11 rising senior was very active on the defensive end of the court and showed a decent touch from 12 foot in.
Altamonte Springs Lake Brantley Trent Stokes showed promised as well. Stokes played consistent on both ends of the court and held his own against some of the top players in the field.
The Kids Can Play
2011 prospect Corneilious Johnson of
Jacksonville ACD Brandon Boyd showed promise at the point guard position. He was very strong with the basketball and was able to finish in traffic despite being only 5’10.
Delron Sumney, a 2011 prospect out of
2012 prospect Rajon Armstrong showed that he has unlimited range shooting three pointers from NBA range. He also showed he can blow by his opponents to get to the basket.
The biggest surprise of the camp had to be the play of Ocoee guard Rodney Blount. Blount was the best pure point guard on the court on the day setting up opponents for easy baskets.
Admir Sahbegovic, a 2010 prospect of Jacksonville Englewood showed a great touch from 15 feet. He also was active on the boards.
Play of the Day
Play of the day goes to Orlando Christian Prep’s Tyshawn Patterson crossing up a defender causing him to fall while driving to the basket for a lay-up.
