ATLANTA – is designed to give both college coaches and fans alike an in-depth look at some of the nation’s top prospects. Nike EYBL play is a perfect stage to gauge the talent level of elite preps. The Session IV stop was no different. Here are some of the notable players from the event:

By: @BrandonClayPSB

Marvin Bagley III | 6’10” | Phoenix Phamily | Class of 2018

Simply put, Bagley III is the best forward in the country. He’s averaging 20.8 points, 10.2 rebounds on the season and playing like the potential No. 1 selection in the 2019 NBA Draft. Bagley is putting up a crisp 52 percent from the field and is showing touch around the paint. He is an elite finisher at the basket with the length to impact the game on both ends at the rim.

D.J. Harvey | 6’4” | Team Takeover | Class of 2017

Harvey has struggled a bit during EYBL play before this stop. He played with a renewed pace in Atlanta making plays on both ends against Cal Supreme. Harvey is averaging 11 points, 6.7 rebounds and right at 2 assists per in 16 EYBL games. He’s at 68 percent from the line and 30.5 perfect from the 3-point line. Both of those numbers have room for improvement but the talent / size is there.

Kevin Knox | 6’8” | E1T1 | Class of 2017

Knox is making the transition to a full-time wing almost flawlessly. He still has some moments where it’s evident that he’s still putting it all together but the numbers through 16 EYBL games are crisp: 20.8 points, 7.9 rebounds per. He’s shooting 71 percent from the line, 31 percent from beyond the arc. Both of those numbers can improve but have Knox’s game in a good place going into his senior season.

Jontay Porter | 6’9” | MoKan Elite | Class of 2018

Porter has slimmed down since my eval this winter. He is showing the ability to stretch the floor with his jumper. If he’ll continue to be a force around the rim, this added range will only enhance his game. He’s averaged 5.6 points, 4.6 rebounds per so far this season on 45 percent from 3-point land.
