BUFORD, Ga. – The Elite Basketball Academy All-American Camp is designed to bring some of the nation’s top prospects together to compete and showcase their skills in front of BrandonClayScouting.com and OTRHoopsReport.com evaluators.
Travis Anderson – (Loganville, Ga.) – Holy Innocents – 2018
Although Anderson is just entering his freshman year in high school he exudes confidence of a seasoned veteran. Playing the point guard position, Anderson rarely allowed opponents to speed him up into making mistakes. The 5-foot-9 guard showed polish with his skill this weekend as he shot the ball well from beyond the arc while also putting the ball on the floor with quickness. All of these skills combined should equal Anderson making impact this year for the Bears at Holy Innocents.
Jordan Barnett – hire someone to take your paper (Homer, Ga.) – Banks County HS – 2015
In a camp setting the temptation for many players is to get into the mindset of trying to make the highlight play each time down the court. Barnett on the other hand found that being a good teammate and making the right basketball play draws more attention than the forced bad shot. The 6-2 wing did well in making the extra pass and playing hard on the defensive end. However, the senior did show that he could make plays for himself when the situation warranted it. He shot the ball so well from 3-point range that defenders could not afford to leave him any space. He countered his shooting with the ability to drive the ball hard to the rim with space. His well-rounded game should equate to productive minutes this year alongside of fellow Banks County guard Kendrick Simmons.
Kai Lambert – (Lawrenceville, Ga.) – gmat essay writing Collins Hill HS – 2016
Lambert is proving to be a model Elite Basketball Academy camper with his consistent effort on both ends of the floor. At 6-4, Lambert provides an elite specialty of being able to rebound from the wing position. His athleticism and his motor allow him to crash the glass and get put-back opportunities on the offensive end. In this way Lambert becomes a mismatch on the perimeter, because most wing defenders cannot match his explosiveness nor his size from that position. Offensively Lambert is making the skill progression that will be needed for him to be two-way player. He knocked down several long range jump shots while already being a proven slasher to the bucket. Given his willingness to work hard each time the gym doors open, look for Lambert to make coach Ty Baumgardner’s transition into region 7-AAAAAA somewhat easier in his first get essays season at Collins Hill High School.
