SUGAR HILL, Ga. – The Elite Basketball Academy Top 40 Workout 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.
AJ Cheeseman, Team 6, (Duluth, Ga.) Duluth HS – 2016
Cheeseman is a perfect front line forward for any team that needs work done in the paint. He enforces the lane with strength and physicality. He is a willing screener, but he brings even more value as a rebounder. In that way he is a threat to put up double digit numbers on the glass nightly. The 6-foot-6 junior even showed the mobility to step out and be a pick and roll threat in this camp setting. With his jump shot developing as well, he could turn into one of the city’s most recruited big men this summer.
Justin Lee, Team 2 – (Lawrenceville, Ga.) – Collins Hill HS – 2018
Lee was a pleasant surprise at the camp. The freshman stepped onto a stage with older and more experienced players. However, he played toe to toe with the competition and displayed the physical tools that he will need moving forward. At 6-1 right now, he looks like the type of player who could easily grow 4-5 inches in the next 18 months. Although we could not pin-point a specialty in this short window of camp, he did not display any apparent holes in his game either.
Kohl Roberts, Team 1 – (Sandy Springs, Ga.) – Riverwood HS – 2016
We came away impressed with the 6-7 big man. His energy was infectious as his team ran off consecutive wins in the camp. He constantly talked and encouraged his teammates and this perhaps made the biggest impression walking away from the workout. On the skill side, Roberts did not disappoint either. Although he has a bigger frame, he has the footwork to be mobile and he has the lift to finish above the rim. He showed the ability to finish with either hand around the bucket. Roberts even knocked down a few 15′ jumpers here today. If he brings all of that production to the high school season, his high school coach Buck Jenkins will be smiling all season long.
