College programs are celebrating with family and friends over the holidays but the one present they are the most likely to want more than any is a top high school prospect. Here is a look at the top players from The Chick-Fil-A Classic.
LSU is getting a player that can bring so much to a basketball game in Darius Days. The IMG product is a high-level rebounder and can destroy a rim. He is athletic and plays so strong. He can score out to 18-feet, he can rebound with bigger players and he can defend multiple positions on the floor. He is going to be what will hold everything together down in Baton Rogue.
Silvio DeSousa is rumored to be heading to Kansas early and joining the Jayhawks in January to help bolster their not so strong frontline. What DeSousa will bring is energy, toughness and a player that will destroy rims. He had numerous thunderous dunks during the first two games for IMG Academy in the Classic.
Jaemyn Brakefield, a 2020 wing for Huntington Prep may have been one of the most athletic players at The Chick-Fil-A Classic. He had some highlight reel dunks that left the crowd in awe. He scored 19 points and grabbed 6 rebounds for Huntington Prep in a OT loss to IMG on Thursday and scored 9 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished out 4 assists in a win over Westown (PA) on Friday. He has offers from Houston, Minnesota, Virginia Tech and Ole Miss.
Cam Reddish is heading to Duke. He is a versatile scoring guard/forward combo that can go for 5o on any given night. He is 6-foot-8 and can handle the ball like a guard. He is long, versatile, skilled, athletic and unselfish. He scored 28 points to go along with 12 rebounds in a win on Thursday and on Saturday he went for 28 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
Anthony Harris of Paul IV (VA) is a workhorse. He plays hard every play and never takes a play off. He is a tough, skilled guard that can score the basketball and does the little things to help his program win. He is scheduled to visit Maryland and South Carolina in the coming weeks. The 6-foot-2 class of 2019 point guard needs to make his three-point shot a little more consistent but the rest of his game is ready for the college level.
