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

Alex Barcello | 6’0” |Oakland Soldiers | Class of 2017

Barcello played his way into the ELITE 100 discussion after the first four EYBL stops. He’s averaging 18.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per. He’s got point guard ball skill but is an efficient scorer as well shooting 85 perfect from the line, 35 from beyond the arc and 45 from the field.

Michael Porter Jr.| 6’10” | Mokan Elite | Class of 2017

Porter showed out here finishing with 22 points. That’s about par for the course as he’s averaging 22.8 per game in EYBL play. The most eye catching number on his statline is the 10.9 rebounds he grabs each game. Porter Jr. has the size to be effective on the wing and is just scratching the surface of his game offensively. In that way, expect him to become a more consistent long range threat as he sits just under 30 percent at 29.8 on the season so far.

Cody Riley | 6’9” | Phoenix Phamily | Class of 2017

Riley’s size and strength on the inside is well documented. Playing alongside Marvin Bagley III, Riley’s willingness to rebound allows Bagley the freedom to face up on offense. Riley is averaging 13.7 points, 7.3 rebounds per game. That said, he’s shooting at 46 percent from the field which is an area he can improve on.

Trae Young | 6’2” | Mokan Elite| Class of 2017

Young has had some monster games in EYBL play and is one of the statistical leaders at the point guard position. He struggled in this matchup against the St. Louis Eagles finishing with 12 points, three assists on 2-13 from the field and seven turnovers. That said, Young is putting up a staggering 21.3 points a game with 7.1 assists to go with it. Improving his 3-point percentage from right at 30 into the high 30’s or low 40’s will help create seperation at the collegiate level in a guard-dominated landscape.
