HoopMIA Unsigned Senior Showcase
April 15, 2018
We had a great turnout for our Unsigned Senior Showcase this weekend and our staff here at HoopMIA would like to thank all of the seniors who came out and participated. There was a variety of talent in the gym and a number of College Coaches who we'd also like to thank for coming out. It's our goal at HoopMIA to create an environment where players can connect with coaches and we feel that there were a number of players that really stood out on Sunday. In today's write up I focused on guys who really caught my eye, but there were definitely more than 10 guys in the gym capable of playing college basketball and I encourage coaches to reach out if they have any questions about guys who are not on this list as well!
Top Performers (No particular order):
Kamari Brown (6’5/SG/2018) Triple Threat Prep
The electric shooting guard from Triple Threat Prep dominated throughout the day. For anyone who’s seen Kamari play before, you weren’t overly surprised to see him rise up for a number of powerful tomahawks jams. However, Kamari also showed off his improved handle and jump shot throughout the day. On two different occasions in his last game set, Kamari brought the ball down court and shook his man with a hesitation and knocked down two contested threes. High Major athlete with a growing skill set, a qualifier but from what I’ve heard most likely headed to JUCO - someone for Division I coaches to keep an eye on.
Ronique Spencer (6’5/Forward/2018) Oxbridge Academy
Again, every time I see Ronique Spencer he gets significantly better. The physical specimen from Oxbridge Academy officially has me convinced that he’s a Division I player, a year ago when I first saw him play you would’ve thought playing Division II was a reach. This year at Oxbridge he made most of his contributions in the paint - high motor, a tenacious/powerful rebounder, and strong finisher (looks to dunk everything). On Sunday Ronique continued to show his ability to dominate in the paint, but also showed his drastically improved footwork, jump shot, and overall skill set on the perimeter. A notorious gym rat, the young man has shown how dedicated he is to getting in the gym and improving his game on a daily basis. With a year of Prep School or Junior College I think we would get a chance to see how high his ceiling might be.
Rowdens Albert (5’11/CG/2018) Atlantic High School
Albert is the epitome of a combo guard. He was extremely effective all afternoon, especially in the pick and roll. He was impressively poised while turning the corner on ball screens to attack the paint - waiting until the defense reacted until he made his decision. Albert also showed ability to create space and rise up from behind the arc, spaces the floor off the ball as a threat from the three point line.
Rasheet Wilson (6’3/PG/2018) Game Changers Post Grad
Wilson may have had the most complete offensive package at camp. Wilson who played for Game Changers post grad was dynamic with the ball in his hands. Wilson has a crisp handle and the ability to shoot off with bounce with range. As a staff we were impressed with his on court demeanor, his ability as a floor general was evident as he was able to draw the defense and find the open man consistently . Wilson is fielding junior college options and Region VIII coaches should be all over the former Atlantic High School product.
Brandon Alcide (6’1/PG/2018) Triple Threat Prep
A tough competitor, Brandon used his length and athleticism to create plays on both ends of the floor on Sunday. On the offensive end, he was comfortable making plays while isolated and out of the pick and roll. Very comfortable creating shots for himself off the bounce and showed he can knock-down deep jumpers with some consistency. Throughout the day Brandon showed he has all of the leadership intangibles that a coach is looking for, positive high-energy, always supporting his teammates, and he plays to win. Would be an absolute steal for any of the NAIA schools in the Sun Conference.
Zach Kuhn (6’8/PF/2018) Dillard High School
Blessed with a big frame and light feet, the Dillard big man showed off his versatility throughout the day. Zach did most of his scoring as the screener in the pick and roll, showing the ability to catch passes and finish around the rim as well as the ability to pop and knock down perimeter jumpers. Every DIII coach in the country should be after this kid, has the ability to be incredibly dominant at that level. Most likely see him playing for a DII school and having a solid career there, could fit well with a Sun Conference NAIA school.
Mike Starks (6’0/PG/2018) Palmetto Senior High School
A crafty playmaker and gritty defender, Mike made winning plays on both ends of the floor. Out of the pick and roll he had great timing, using an in and out dribble and hesitation to keep his defender off balance. Mike was a willing passer when he drew the help defender, and also showed the ability to finish through contact around the rim. On the defensive end he was incredibly disruptive, creating chaos in the back court which led to sloppy passes and easy steals for the next line of defense.
Addison Alufohai (6’5/CG/2018) Pines Charter
Athletic playmaker who lit it up in the second game set, knocking down 5 consecutive threes during one stretch. Addison showed he can do a little bit of everything; on the defensive end he showed great anticipation while playing the passing lanes, turning steals into transition dunks. On offense he was solid out of the pick and roll, rose up comfortably for a couple smooth pull up jumpers. Great attitude, during our workouts he was always the guy jumping in a drill when the lines were unbalanced, and he played hard consistently throughout the day.
Dominick Garcia (6’1/ComboGuard/2018) SLAM High
The most impressive shooter of the afternoon, Dominick lit everyone up on Sunday. Catch and shoot, off the dribble, heavily contested, didn’t matter, kid couldn’t miss. Crafty combo guard who can play with and without the ball in his hands. Showed the ability to create for his teammates, and also read the defense correctly off the ball which opened him up for a number of open three’s. High IQ player who knows how to play well with talent around him.
Mykale Carter (6’5/Wing/2018) Piper High School
The long and wirey wing showed off his ability to drive the ball and score around the rim on Sunday. Mykale has a real nose for the ball, he uses his length effectively and was very disruptive on defense - deflections, blocks, steals. High motor and a great attitude, any college who brings this young man in is getting a great addition to their program.
