By: @BrandonClayPSB

Darius Garland | 6’2” | St. Louis Eagles | Class of 2018

Garland jumped on the Eagles roster mid stream without missing a beat. He’s putting up the numbers and still has another season of 17u EYBL eligibility: 13.2 points, 2.7 assists on 83 percent from the line and 39 percent from beyond the arc in 9 EYBl league games. He outplayed Trae Young in this one with an efficient performance: 11 points, 3 assists and a single turnover.

Luke Garza | 6’10” | Team Takeover | Class of 2017

Garza is a post scorer in the EYBL setting. A right-hand dominant prospect, he can open up off the post catch to face the rim then score. Garza also made a tough up and under move before hitting a trail 3-pointer possessions later. In 16 EYBL games, he is averaging 11 points, 5.7 rebounds per on 82.5 percent from the line and 57 percent from the field.

Bruno Fernando | 6’10” | E1T1 | Class of 2017

After reclassfying to 2017, Fernando has set out to work on his game. His EYBL numbers in just 6 games of play are impressive: 12.8 points, 7 rebounds per on 79 percent from the line, 63 percent from the field. Fernando is an elite athlete who hit a 15 footer as well as a right-handed half hook in this eval.

Jarred Vanderbilt | 6’8” | Houston Hoops | Class of 2017

Vanderbilt is in the process of moving exclusively on the perimeter. He’s shooting 39 percent from the free throw line, 19 percent from 3 but still at 48 percent from the field. Right now, he is most effective inside of 15 feet and is an elite prospect in the country in that regard. He’s even a high level passer in that way. His EYBL numbers of 13.5 points, 10.9 rebounds per with 3.7 assists support that. He is averaging 3.9 turnovers a game which offsets his high assist number.
