BUFORD, Ga. – The Elite Basketball Academy (EBA) Top 40 Workout is quickly becoming a staple of both the spring and fall individual camp circuit. With multiple national evaluators on hand, competitive game and skill development sessions to go along with broadcasts powered by SUVtv, there isn’t a better stage inside the Peach State for college prospects to showcase their talent. Here’s a look at some of the standout prospects from Team 1 inside the Workout:
***EBA Top 40 Spring Workout will be March 8, 2015
Xavier Morgan of Lawrenceville, Ga., got into the lane time after time on Saturday making life easier for Kohl Roberts of Sandy Springs, Ga., in the process. Morgan is one of the top distributing Metro Atlanta guards still available based on his play here.
Keep an eye on Kameron Jimenez-Fox of Lawrenceville, Ga. He brought length to the wing as well as energy and finished consistently in the open floor. He’s a high energy guy capable of playing multiple positions for Central Gwinnett coach Branden Mayweather this season.
Nico Tolbert of Stone Mountain, Ga., was impressive with his willingness to be involved in the patience that the offense showed. The guard showed a cool hand playing off of the ball never rushing the tempo and providing quality on ball defense.
Jackson Lenyear of Lawrenceville, Ga., is a solid guard who we expect to get plenty of time for the Berkmar High team this season. He was impactful on both ends here as a guard with plenty of quicks.
The aforementioned Roberts was a welcome addition to the Workout field bringing both size and energy to the forward position. He was matched up with classmate Brent Duncan of Atlanta, Ga., and rebounded the ball consistently. Riverwood High coach Buck Jenkins is expecting a big season from the junior interior threat and so are we.
Ty Pendley of Dalton, Ga., is stringing together quality performances. He made arguably the play of the game in the opening contest with a mean spin into a dribble drive that resulted in a left hand finish at the rim. As usual, he was not missing from beyond the arc.
We’re expecting a big season from Micah Kinsey of Lilburn, Ga., at Brookwood High. His ability to play the game with pace at either guard position was noteworthy. He gets to the basket early and often. More than anything, Kinsey is a playmaker and from all accounts by his HS coach Daniel Bowles, a coachable one at that.
Preston Wiggins of Gainesville, Ga., seemed to gain confidence with each trip down the floor at the EBA All-American Camp last month. This evaluation was more of the same for the young wing. He’s got range to knock down the jump shot when left open.
Austin Weiner of Gainesville, Ga., is a prospect with real length. Like Wiggins, his game has improved already since the conclusion of EBA All-American Camp. We’ll keep an eye on him this school season.
