By: @JLHemingwayPSB & @BrandonClayPSB Player Evaluations

Date: June 10, 2016
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Slater is no stranger to the elite circuit stage. He performed well again with his usual array of plays. Slater might not always showcase an elite specialty but does bring a competitive nature from programs (Paul VI & Team Takeover) who are accustomed to producing high level prospects.

Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Slater is a consistent player who makes the right play at the right time. He is active on both ends.

Date: January 17, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Mass.)

Slater continues to be a kid of potential. His production does not quite equal what we believe he will become. However, he showed a diverse skill set as a lead handler and being active on the glass.

Date: December 12, 2015
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Team Takeover National Hoop Showcase (Hyattsville, Md.)

A left-handed jump shooter, Slater showed that area to be his elite specialty in this setting against API. He is consistent with his stroke. Slater didn’t create much off of the bounce here.

Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Team Takeover National Hoop Showcase (Hyattsville, Md.)

Slater has the length already to have a chance at producing like teammate Franklin Howard (VA-15). Slater is a left-hand dominant prospect who made a nice finish in traffic against Oak Hill.
